To raise public awareness about our injured service men and women, the Arkansas Crawlers 4x4 Club enlisted assistance from several automotive aftermarket parts specialists. The result is the Warrior Jeep, a custom 2007 JK Wrangler that will be given away in a random drawing on December 1, 2008 (ticket sold through November 16). Sweepstakes tickets are tax-deductible and cost $25 each. All proceeds go to the Wounded Warrior Project.
Valued at $80,000, the Warrior Jeep caught the industry's attention at the 2007 SEMA Show. Major modifications include a 440 HP 6.1L Hemi and a Chrysler 545RF transmission, swapped in by Burnsville Off-Road using a Hotwire Auto harness. The power train is completed by an Advance Adapters Atlas transfer case, Dynatrac high-pinion axles with Detroit Lockers and Tom Woods driveshafts. The Warrior uses a 4" Superlift Rockrunner suspension system to clear 37" Interco IROKs on 17" x 9" Walker Evans beadlocks. A glut of accessories came courtesy of Mopar Performance, Street & Performance, American Expedition Vehicles, Bushwhacker, Katzkin, Hi-Lift and Powertank. Painter Joey Hutson executed the artistic tribute in DuPont colors. Complete specifications, a sweepstakes entry form and official rules are on the Wounded Warrior Project website at warriorjeep.org .
The bottom line: Help a Hero and Win a Jeep!
