Josh Munguia



At just 26 years old Josh is the youngest admin, wheeling a 31 year old XJ. He was born and raised in the High Desert and still calls it home. Josh is an avid rockhound which is the only reason he bought the Jeep. During one of his first wheeling trips, at Ocotillo Wells with Danny Ashley and Nate Chavarria, he got stuck and started dumping money into the XJ ever since. He's only been wheeling seriously since 2016, but because he averages 60 miles of dirtroads a month (just getting to pavement from his house) offroading is second nature to him. For anything High Desert related this is your guy.

Special note: He has a 13 year old diabetic dog (named Riley) that requires 2 shots of insulin a day. After investing ~$6000 into her, she will always come first and has dictated his schedule for the past 2 years.
