For the past 30 years, the California Association of 4WD clubs (CA4WDC) has purchased a Jeep, modified it for real-world four wheeling, and raffled it off for less than the cost of a jumbo mocha. The tradition continues this year with a 2014 4-door Jeep JK Wrangler, custom prepared for overland adventure travel.
This year’s Jeep was given a total makeover by MetalCloak Industries, who fitted it with their high-clearance fenders, MetalCloak Game Changer suspension with Old Man Emu shocks, and heavy-duty Rocker bumpers. A Superchip motivated Pentastar 3.6-liter V6 distributes power to a Dynatrac front axle, front and rear Eaton electric locking differentials, Sierra Gear ring & pinion gears, and G2 axles. Reid steering knuckles control a set of BFGoodrich Mud Terrains mounted on Raceline wheels, and the undercarriage, including a Magnaflow exhaust system, is protected by Rock Hard skid plates. Safety/recovery equipment includes a Warn Zeon 8000 winch, Factor 55 ProLink, PowerTank, and Rock Hard cage, and LED lighting from Rigid, Olympus, and Two Guys Trail Gear. Other enhancements include an AEV snorkel and hood, Kargo Master roof rack, ARB Fridge/Freezer and Simpson III roof top tent, and Daystar Cam Cans.
Don’t worry if you don’t win the Jeep, runner-up prizes will include an Atlas II transfercase from Advanced Adapters. The winning ticket will be drawn February 21st, 2015 at the CA4WDC convention in Visalia, CA, and you need not be present to win. Net proceeds go directly towards the fight to keep our public lands open! To order tickets go to www.cal4wheel.com or contact Jeff Blewett, 209-210-7880.
