2015 Jeep Wrangler – Another Awesome Auto Art Custom!
Another stunning custom vehicle by Chicago’s Auto Art, the 2015 Jeep Wrangler was built as a promotional vehicle to show off Auto Art’s extensive and broad spectrum of custom car applications before Forte snatched it off the market. Whether it’s a European exotic, American Muscle Car or an extreme off-road custom, Auto Art does it better than anyone in the Midwest region as you can see from these incredible Jeremy Cliff images.
Just about everything is modded on this 2015 Jeep Wrangler with the exception of the factory powertrain which included the 3.6 liter 285hp V6 and six speed trans. In fact, it has over $100k in performance upgrades. Nothing was left untouched. Experienced off-roaders will notice exterior upgrades like the Metalcloak fender flares, Teraflex stubby front bumper, Wild Boar grille by TrailHawk, Roto-X fuel canisters, the Warn Zeon winch, the vented steel hood by Rugged Ridge and those trick LED-lighted power steps from AMP Research. These design aesthetics and exterior upgrades (there are others you will find too) show the vision of Auto Art’s major domo Larry Chachko. Chachko’s ability to visualize modifications and upgrades to performance OEM vehicles, be it a supercar or a Jeep, shows tremendous talent.
Once the exterior mods were massaged into place, the Jeep was blown apart and coated with Lamborghini Reventon Matte Grey with Grey/Purple camouflage patterns giving it its satirical name “Camo Toe.” As you can see here – that camo pattern runs throughout the entire vehicle and trim pieces.
When it comes to extreme off-road vehicles, lighting is always an essential ingredient. This vehicle excels in trick illumination. Every light has been switched out to light its way after the dun goes down. The headlights are Truklight LED’s while the side markers and taillights are from ANZO. Rigid Industries supplied the fog lights, 20-inch LED hood mount, A-Pillar LED’s, roof rack LED’s and rear bumper lights as well as all the lighting mounts. The coup de grâce is the integrated Switch Pros dashboard system which allows manual operation or a cell phone app option which allows the driver full control of all lighting as well as the ability to strobe flash.
Interior customization rivals the exterior makeover. Premium caramel-hued Napa Leather with black honeycomb inserts are sewn together with Aston Martin-style baseball stitching. Then there’s the real deal Alcantara Headliner. Not to be overlooked are the brushed billet aluminum brass knuckle grab handles which come in handy when Forte gets rowdy at the controls. An Alpine system blares through Hertz speakers for stadium-quality sound.
Lastly, let’s talk suspension. Not only will this beast tackle and smash anything in its path, like Matt Forte running through the defensive line, it does so while looking graceful. Take those 22-inch ADV.1 “ADV6” forged three-piece wheels finished in gloss Penny Copper. They’re wrapped in 37-inch Nitto Mud Grapplers and pay homage to Auto Art’s infatuation with copper and bronze colors. Inside the wheel wells you’ll find a five-inch Fabtech stainless steel “Dirt Logic” short arm coilover suspension system including the Fabtech steering stabilizer as well as Artec Industries axle reinforcements.
Forte’s Wrangler can win on dirt, pavement or whatever car show it enters. By blending American performance with serious style, this off-road roller more than measures up. Touchdown Matt Forte!
