Special Forces Road Armor JK Jeep Wrangler


The combination of cool JK armor and bumper products from Road Armor and the support of the Special Forces through the Green Beret Foundation was enough to create this monster. 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 impressed visitors as much as the 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 to build a special JK series Jeep Wrangler for SEMA 2014. It is a great platform to show off Road Armors newest tech and support a great cause at the same time. During SEMA the guns in the side mounts were not real and the twin 50mm guns up top were not loaded, but that was set to change after the show was over.

Road Armor said 50mm guns would be live for some desert shooting. This JK 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 will be handed over to the Green Barret Foundation for a year to promote their cause.

Body armor for the JK has also been upgraded. One of the nice things about these upgrades is they use much of the factory mounting locations and looks like a factory part. Road Armor extend 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 features on this killer JK 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.
