Omix-ADA showcased a custom-built Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited in support of SEMA Cares, marking the fourth time the company has partnered with SEMA and its charity efforts. All proceeds from the Wrangler will benefit Victory Junction Camp—a camp dedicated to enriching the lives of children affected by serious illness or chronic medical conditions.
The Wrangler was built at Petty’s Garage in Level Cross, North Carolina. The owner of Petty’s Garage, NASCAR legend Richard Petty, was directly involved with the build, making the Wrangler an all-around special project. The ’16 Wrangler JK came stock and was ultimately transformed via a full array of Rugged Ridge parts and accessories.
“This was a very exciting build for us and a wonderful opportunity to not only showcase some wonderful vendors but also allow our technicians and design team to really exhibit their skills,” said Scott Duda, production manager for Rocky Mountain Truckworks/Vanworks Inc. The Wrangler JK was displayed in the Black Horse Automotive booth at the
SEMA Show and showcased a variety of upgraded off-road features and cosmetic enhancements. Xanatos Automotive provided 50-in. and 30-in. LED light bars in addition to Wrangler grille inserts. A Fabtech Motorsports 5-in. short-arm crawler system, Wheel-1 37-in. tires, Wheel Pros Rock Star 3 wheels, MagnaFlow performance
exhaust and DV8 Off Road hood, bumpers, fenders and winch made up just a few of the exterior modifications. “Our design team worked with several other companies to build a truly one-of-a kind vehicle that showcased the newest industry trends and designs,” Duda
