SEMA: What inspired you to pursue a career in the truck and off-road industry?
Brad Mandell: I have been a Jeep owner since high school, which was 30 years ago.
SEMA: Why did you decide to volunteer for TORA?
BM: I want to give back to the industry that has given so much to me.
SEMA: What advice do you have for someone pursuing a career in the automotive aftermarket?
BM: This is the type of industry where it’s a labor of love. You need to ask yourself if you are committed to the meticulous detail it takes to really excel. If so, go for it 100% and you will never look back.
SEMA: What is your dream truck or off-road vehicle? Where would we find you in it on any weekend?
BM: My dream vehicle is the next one we are going to build. On the weekend, you can find me driving my Jeep to the beach with a surfboard strapped on top.
