Yoenis Cespedes’ Outrageous Jeep Wrangler Makes Spring Training Debut
Last ride of the week is a Jeep
New York Mets outfielder Yoenis Cespedes has been showing up to spring training in Florida with a different custom vehicle every day so far. Today he rolled up in a wildly customized Jeep Wrangler Unlimited.
Built by Alex Vega, a Miami-based car dealer and customizer, this Wrangler features a mild lift to fit 35-inch Nitto Trail Grappler M/ts wrapped around the custom red forged 22-inch Avorza wheels. The factory fender flares where removed giving the Jeep a cleaner appearance. The stock doors where swapped out for half-doors with netting for that ultimate open-air Jeep experience. In case Cespedes gets stuck, a winch was added to the burly front bumper, and if the sun goes down before he can get out, a plethora of Rigid LED lights will light the way.
The exterior wasn’t the only part of the Jeep to receive attention. The stock interior was replaced with a custom-made red leather seats that feature baseball-style white stitching along the sides. Vega said he spent about 100 hours working on the Jeep in the last two weeks, and now that it’s all finished, the Jeep is worth $80,000.
While it may not be how we would customize our Jeep, it’s still cool to see a guy who just signed a $75 million three-year contract driving around in a Jeep.
