SEMA 2017 Spotlight Showcase Jeep

Traci ClarkPhotographer, Writer

“Simply stunning” doesn’t even begin to describe the Synergy JK-Commando. To be honest, this is the build we were looking forward to seeing in person. It was even better than we imagined. You can see that it was truly a labor of love for Dustin Boyack and Kevin Burk; their attention to every detail evident. The sexy vintage body style paired with modern drivetrain, a beefed up V8, and the subtle addition of upgraded bumpers front and rear makes this Jeep truly pleasing to the eye. The interior carries on that same theme, modern convenience and comfort, but the old school flair is still present. Thank you for your dedication to preserving some of the past, and Congratulations on winning top honors in The Life is Better Off-Road competition, your Top Ten placement in SEMA Battle of the Builders, and for being one of Jp Magazine’s Top Ten Jeeps of SEMA 2017! Well done indeed!!!
