Warrior Jeep – Help a hero, win a Jeep.

This past February the Arkansas Crawlers wanted to come up with a charity project. They discussed alot of differant ideas but ended up deciding to build a Jeep (of course), raffle it off with everything going to the Wounded Warrior Project. Ticket price will be around $25.00 and completely tax deductible. 100% of the proceeds go to Wounded Warrior Project.

The Wounded Warrior Project was founded on the principle that veterans are our nation’s greatest citizens. The Wounded Warrior Project seeks to assist those men and women of our armed forces who have been severely injured during the conflicts in Iraq, Afghanistan, and other locations around the world. Many of the injuries are traumatic amputations, gunshot wounds, burns and blast injuries that will retire these brave warriors from military service.

Warrior Jeep

Bret Lovett the owner and CEO of Superlift Suspension Systems really thought that this was a great project and has taken it to an extraordinary level with the donation of a 2007 JK Rubicon Unlimited to be fully customized. This vehicle will be released at SEMA this year in the Chrysler booth then will travel with the Superlift Truck to over 20 events over the next year.

    I live and work in Georgetown. I have been a trail guide for JJ USA under Greg and Mark Smith on the Rubicon trail in the past and would be honored to volunteer my time / help on the wounded warrior Rubicon Jeep trip.
    Thank you 530-333-1185
