This year RockAuto has teamed up with Xtreme Off Road again to build an awesome giveaway Jeep. The 1968 Jeepster Commando is not only being built in the Xtreme shop but will be on this year’s off-road adventure – Bourbon & Boulders.
The 2017 RockAuto Xtreme Off Road Jeepster Commando is loaded with high-performance upgrades including a custom suspension with leaf springs, 40” tires and an entire drivetrain upgrade from a 4-liter V6 to a Jeep 4-liter straight six. It’s a build you’ll definitely want to check out and you can enter to win at RockAuto.powernationtv.com
Make sure you tune into this week’s PowerNation as all four shops have real-world practical tech you can use, plus Katie will feature one red hot gorgeous custom ’54 Vette that was a 2017 Ridler Great 8 award winner. Owner-builder Larry Griffey of Larry Griffey’s Hot Rods & Restorations will share his vision of the “motor-rama” Corvette he thought GM should have built.
In a 6 year labor of love, he did lots of body modifications to get the stance he wanted and dropped in an LS-1 with an Edelbrock supercharger making around 580 horsepower. That striking color is a three-stage Matrix paint called “Soul Red”. Pro Auto Interiors handled the interior and it is, of course, Great 8 quality. He named it “Transitions” because of all the changes it’s been thought. By the way, this is Larry’s 2nd Ridler Great 8 award winner, amazing work for a small Knoxville, Tennessee shop!
