Marshawn Lynch Beast Mode Jeep Wranglers Up For Charity AuctionPosted in News on February 3, 2016
Super Bowl champion Marshawn Lynch has built not one, but two, Beast Mode Jeep Wrangler JKs that are up for auction, with all the proceeds going to his charity, the Fam 1st Family Foundation.
Marshawn Lynch is an all-pro running back for the Seattle Seahawks, and his charity, the Fam 1st Family Foundation, seeks to improve the lives of underprivileged youth in California’s Bay Area near San Fransico. “Growing up in Oakland, it’s a diverse population with individuals coming from a variety of backgrounds,” said Marshawn Lynch. “With the help of eBay, I’m pleased to auction off some items to help support the development of our Fam 1st Family Foundation Center. This center will be key as we advance our Foundation’s goal of helping to serve the underprivileged youth community in the Bay Area.” Now that you know the proceeds are going to a good cause, lets see what the Jeeps are packing.
Starting with a pair of stock 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport models, the team at Custom Performance Vehicle Division at McLoughlin Chrysler Jeep got to work adding plenty of parts to improve the Wranglers performance and looks. A 4-inch Elite long-arm suspension was added with Fox shocks to improve the ride and make clearance for 37-inch tires wrapped around 20-inch beadlock wheels. Mopar Dana 44 axles with 4.88 gears and electric lockers were added to make talking any obstacle a breeze. Metalcloak fender flairs, rock sliders, tire carrier were installed, and VPR front bumper was added to protect the Wranglers sheet metal.
With the suspension, drivetrain, and body protected, the custom touches could begin. A Wildboar one-piece fastback hardtop was installed, a heat reduction hood was installed, custom grille inserts were added, and green LED halo lights replaced the stock ones.
The interior wasn’t left alone either: custom black-leather upholstery with green stitching was installed, and the Beast Mode logo was embroidered on the backrest. A 9-inch Alpine display was added to pump tunes through the Focal Speakers and JBL subwoofer, providing great sound on or off the trail. Custom paint graphics finish off these JKs, letting everyone know you support children and beastly Wranglers.
