Extreme Terrain is an aftermarket parts company focused on the Jeep Wrangler. Partly just because it's a really cool thing to do, and probably having something to do with Jeep's upcoming 75th anniversary, Extreme Terrain found some dance partners to help work up a special 2015 Wrangler Rubicon that it will show off at the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival in Butler, PA, then at SEMA in November, where it will be given away.

Extreme worked with Barricade Off-Road and Kevin Tetz from the Spike show Trucks! to build the Wrangler it calls Project Trail Force. There is more than $24,000 worth of aftermarket gear on it, starting with the Ripp centrifugal supercharger that pumps an additional 140 horsepower into the 3.6-liter V6. It's got a 3.5-inch lift kit from Rock Krawler, Dana 44 axles strung between 37-inch BFG tires, Barricade bumpers, a 9,500-pound winch, fender flares, rock sliders, a 50-inch LED light bar above the windshield, LED spotlights on the A-pillars, and seven-inch KC Hilites headlights. Rugged Ridge worked over the inside with upgrades like all-terrain floor and cargo liners, plus seat covers, and a new navigation system with a back-up camera.

If you want to win it, you can enter the contest at Extreme Terrain once every week until Oct. 23. The winner gets flown to SEMA to have Kevin Tetz hand the keys over. If you just want to see it, you can head to PA for that heritage festival. The Project Trail Force will also lead a Jeep parade that could set a Guinness World Record. The press release below has a lot more info on the build. Good luck.

MALVERN, Pa. (June 12, 2015) – ExtremeTerrain, a leader in providing aftermarket Jeep Wrangler parts, along with rugged, enthusiast-driven Jeep Wrangler aftermarket armor and accessories manufacturer Barricade Off-Road, today unveiled a fully-built 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon dubbed Project Trail Force at the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival in Butler, PA.

Today's reveal comes 4 months ahead of the annual Specialty Equipment Market Association (SEMA) Show in Las Vegas, NV where this custom-built Wrangler will be given away. The SEMA Show is a yearly showcase of customized vehicles that represents the pinnacle of aftermarket automotive design and innovation, the perfect venue for Project Trail Force. Fans can enter to win this Jeep once per week until October 23rd at

The driving force behind Project Trail Force is a centrifugal Ripp Supercharger, adding over 140 horsepower to the otherwise factory 3.6L V6. Featuring some of the toughest and most advanced aftermarket Wrangler parts available, Project Trail Force sits 3.5" higher than stock thanks to Rock Krawler's long-arm lift kit utilizing coil-overs to help give it the needed clearance for obstacles. Rounding out the look as well as the off-road performance are 37" tires and Mammoth Boulder Wheels to conquer any trail.

The exterior of Project Trail Force boasts a trail-ready upgrade of Barricade Front Bumper, Rear Bumper with Tire Carrier, Fender Flares and Rock Sliders, giving this Rubicon the additional clearance it needs to flex the larger 37" tires. Prepped for late-night wheeling, this 2015 Wrangler features a full Raxiom Lighting upgrade including two 2.5" LED spotlights, two 3" square LED off-road lights and a 50" double row LED light bar. In case that isn't enough lighting to turn night into day, Project Trail Force is equipped with KC Hilites 7" LED headlights.

On the inside, this 2015 Wrangler is hooked up by Rugged Ridge with a pair of their Grab Handles, All Terrain Floor Liners, Cargo Liner and Seat Covers. Finally, the interior is finished with a Raxiom OE-Style Navigation including Bluetooth and Back-up Camera to help you find the trail.

Project Trail Force features over $24,000 worth of aftermarket parts including:
• Suspension: The 3.5" Rock Krawler lift kit installed incudes long arms and coil overs to give this Jeep great on-road handling and off-road performance.
• Armor: The Barricade bumpers on this Jeep give improved approach and departure angles, as well as body protection on the trail. The Barricade Rock Sliders protect the rocker guards from rocks and stumps off-road, and their metal fender flares provide additional clearance for big tires.
• Lighting: Raxiom Lighting took care of adding bumper mounted lights, A-pillar lights, and a 50" light bar that will turn the darkest trail into day.
• Interior: The interior of the Jeep is decked out in Rugged Ridge grab handles, seat covers and floor mats to add convenience and protection.
• Engine: Ripp's centrifugal supercharger system takes care of adding more power to this Jeep. For on-road or off-road driving the additional power allows this Jeep to outperform the rest.

ExtremeTerrain's Kevin Tetz, former host of "Trucks!" on the Spike Network, played an integral role in the Project Trail Force Build. Kevin worked to install a lot of the parts and commented on the build saying, "The winner of Project Trail Force is going to get an awesome rig that has stood up to all the punishment we've thrown at it. It has proven itself on and off the trail. We built this Jeep from the tires up and it's ready for anything!" – Kevin Tetz

Project Trail Force is being unveiled at the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival located in Butler, PA, where it will represent 2015 and lead the Guiness Book of World Records attempt at the largest Jeep Parade. Butler was the birthplace of the Jeep in 1940 and this year is the celebration of the 75th anniversary of the Jeep, making it the perfect event to unveil Project Trail Force and kick off the giveaway!

Starting today and through October 23, 2015, fans can enter online up to once a week to win Project Trail Force. ExtremeTerrain will be flying the winner to the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, NV to claim their prize. Kevin Tetz will be on-hand to deliver the keys to the lucky winner.
