One-of-a-Kind Commando Tactical Edition Jeep Will Be Auctioned Off at Barrett-JacksonPosted in News on April 6, 2016
The teams at Transamerican Auto Parts and 4 Wheel Parts have managed to build the first-ever Commando Tactical Edition Jeep, and it is awesome. The best part of this 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon is that this Jeep will be auctioned off at the Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach Collector’s Car Auction in Florida, and all the proceeds will benefit the Patriot Foundation, which provides support to families of airborne and special operations soldiers killed or wounded in combat.
The Commando Tactical Edition Jeep was inspired by the Hendrick Commando, which served in the military for more than 25 years. This Jeep, built to go anywhere under the harshest conditions, started with the already capable Jeep Wrangler and was upgraded to make sure this rig would be able to get to its destination and back no matter the terrain.
With a TMG suspension system the Jeep’s ride, articulation and clearance immediately improved. With the suspension taken care of, custom Pro Comp alloy wheels wrapped in 35-inch Pro Comp Extreme MT2 Mud Terrains were added to improve off-road traction. Since the Commando Tactical Edition has a go anywhere attitude, Smittybilt bumpers were added front and rear, XRC rock guards, and front and rear flat armor were added to protect the sheetmetal and undercarriage when the trail gets tight.
For the rare occasion you may get stuck a Smittybilt 9.5K XRC winch was added to pull this JK out of even the hairiest of situations. If you find yourself on the trail after the sun goes down the 50-inch LED light bar will lead the way as if the sun was still out.
Capability wasn’t sacrificed for appearance on this Commando Tactical Edition Jeep, it features a black and tan theme that runs throughout as well as a custom patriotic hood graphic painted by Zac Brown Customs’ Kristian Baena.
If you want to own this one-of-a-kind Jeep and help raise money for a worthy charity, you can bid on it a Barrett-Jackson.com beginning April 8th.
