Sahara Showcase


Feature 11

Love it or hate it, you have no choice but to be amazed by it.

In Dub Magazine, July, 2014 Feature – “Sahara Showcase,” Rigid Industries LED Lights are featured on American Force’s 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sahara.

For some after market companies, there’s no better way to show off your products than to build your own company vehicle. American Force Wheels is one of the many companies that want to showcase their many wheel styles. So they decided on a vehicle that would be at home on or off-road, and a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Sahara fulfilled that requirement.

Their 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sahara is one of their “most challenging builds to date,” says American Force Wheels’ Marketing Director, Nick Chin. “We wanted to build a Jeep that would be both credible on the street as well as off. Most of the time it’s either one or the other.” Chin explains.

With this in mind, the American Force crew set out to build an urban assault vehicle that would be ready to tackle all the elements while looking good doing it. More than satisfied with the outcome, Chin thinks it can even conquer a zombie apocalypse. “We want to be ready for zombies,” he jokes. Taking two months to complete and boasting more than $25,000 in aftermarket parts, the Sahara was transformed from a more than capable road-faring SUV to an ultimate rolling showcase.
