Extreme Terrain and Barricade Off-Road Unveil Project Trail Force – The Supercharged 2015 Wrangler JK that will Lead the World’s Largest Jeep Parade

Extreme Terrain, a leader in providing aftermarket Jeep Wrangler parts, and Barricade Off-Road have just unveiled Project Trail Force, a fully-built 2015 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon at the 2015 Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival in Butler, Pennsylvania. The reveal comes four months ahead of the annual SEMA Show where this custom-built Wrangler will be given away. Fans can now enter to win this Jeep once per week until October 23, 2015 at ExtremeTerrain.com.

Project Trail Force will be leading the parade of Jeeps in Butler Pennsylvania during the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival and will do so with quite a bit more power than a stock Rubicon. Project Trail Force packs a centrifugal Ripp supercharger under the hood that adds more than 140 horsepower to the otherwise factory 3.6L Pentastar V-6.

Since power is just a small part of the recipe to a capable off-road rig, the stock suspension just wasn’t going to cut it so a 3.5-inch Rock Krawler long-arm coilover suspension kit help the Jeep crawl over trail obstacles while also soaking up the bumps off-road.

A set of 37-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain T/A KM2 tires wrapped around 17-inch Mammoth Boulder wheels allow the Project Trail Force Jeep Wrangler JK to conquer the trails with ease.

Since any real Jeep will usually encounter immovable obstacles that might crunch up body panels, the exterior of Project Trail Force features a trail-ready Barricade Off-Road front bumper as well as a rear plated bumper with an integrated tire carrier. A set of Barricade Off-Road steel fenders and rock sliders give this Rubicon additional clearance to allow the 37-inch BFGoodrich Mud Terrain tires to fully articulate without rubbing.

Since night wheeling is just too fun to resist, Project Trail Force is outfitted with plenty of lighting for late-night wheeling escapades. A full Raxiom Lighting upgrade including two 2.5-inch LED spotlights, two 3-inch square LED off-road lights and a 50-inch double row LED light bar help chase away the shadows of the night to light up the trail. In case that isn’t enough lighting to turn night into day, Project Trail Force is also equipped with a pair of KC Hilites 7-inch LED headlights.

The inside of this 2015 Jeep Wrangler is just as hooked up as the outside thanks to a pair of Rugged Ridge Grab Handles, All Terrain Floor Liners, Cargo Liner and Seat Covers. Finally, the interior is finished with a Raxiom OE-Style Navigation system including Bluetooth and Back-up Camera to help you find the trail when backing up around blind spots on the trail.

Project Trail Force features over $24,000 worth of aftermarket parts to handle the stresses of brutal off-road use. Extreme Terrain’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!”

Project Trail Force will lead the Guinness Book of World records attempt at the largest Jeep Parade at the Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival in Butler, Pennsylvania. 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. Extreme Terrain will be flying the winner to the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, Nevada to claim their prize. Kevin Tetz will be on-hand to deliver the keys to the lucky winner. You must be 18 years or older to enter and a resident of the United States.
