Special Forces Road Armor JK Jeep Wrangler 4

When you mix cool JK armor and Road Armor’s bumper products in support of the Special Forces through the Green Beret Foundation you will get such monster. The JK Jeep Wrangler on steroids looks very impressive and the things like not using threaded inserts for the armor and opting for a threaded backing plate to sandwich the sheet metal, a solid spare tire carrier swing arm and nice lines on the tough metal fenders once again impressed visitors as much as the overall arsenal on board (all of which will be swapped out for functional guns for actual range testing after SEMA is over.)

Road Armor Bumpers teamed up with the Green Baret Foundation in order to build a special JK series Jeep Wrangler for SEMA 2014 showcase. SEMA is a great platform to show off Road Armors newest tech and support a great cause at the same time. During the show, the guns in the side mounts were replicas and the twin 50mm guns up top were not loaded, but that was set to change after the presentation was over.

The guys from Road Armor said that 50mm guns would be live for some desert shooting. This JK Jeep Wrangler was by far one of the coolest at SEMA, not just because of the Special Forces theme, but also the cool new accessories from Road Armor. After a road trip to shows, the Jeep Wrangler will be handed over to the Green Berret Foundation for a year to promote their cause.

Body armor for the JK Jeep has also been upgraded. One of the nice things about these upgrades is they use much of the factory mounting locations and looks like an ordinary factory part. Road Armor extends their rock guards under the door location all the way down to the body seam. Front and rear fenders provide extra protection with the added feature of looking great.

Other amazing features on this killer JK Jeep Wrangler that were designed by Road Armor were the LED light mounts that are designed to keep the light beams aimed where intended while also being heavy duty. The JK Wrangler is one of my favorite fun projects I have witnessed so far.
