Ever wish you had a fully built Jeep Wrangler Rubicon but don’t have the scratch to buy one? Yeah, me too. Well off-road outfitter Extreme Terrain has partnered up with Barricade, another off-road parts supplier, in a give-away contest for this decked out, 2015 Wrangler.
The Jeep will be given away to the contest winner at the 2015 SEMA show in Las Vegas in front of thousands of jealous onlookers.
But this Wrangler isn’t some pig with lipstick – no, this thing is filled to the brim with some of the best off-road equipment on the market. Everything from the wheels and tires, its suspension system and bumpers, down to the supercharger V-6 has been upgraded for trail duty. Perhaps that’s why the project is called “Trail Force.”
Since this Jeep has too many parts to list in a simple news story, we’ve elected to work up a full review. Click “continue reading” for the full run-down.

It didn’t take long for Raybestos to get their hands on a 2013 Roush Performance Stage 3 Mustang, did it? A week after Roush first broke news about their 2013 Mustang program, Raybestos has come out with a specially-tuned Mustang based on the Roush program. Using all the aero and performance enhancements that are part of the Roush Stage 3 kit, Raybestos added a slew of mechanical parts, including Raybestos racing brakes and chassis parts, on the tuned-up Mustang.
The result is a car teeming with 650 fire-breathing horsepower and 550 lb-ft of torque that promises to be a tuned-up Ford Mustang the likes of which we have never seen before. It also includes a six-speed manual transmission, high performance tires, a ROUSH tuned suspension, and Raybestos chassis components.
The Roush Stage 3 Mustang by Raybestos Garage is still a ways away from being a finished product, but Raybestos was nice enough to drop us a teaser sketch and a teaser video of their Mustang project. If you want to witness the build in its entirety, you can check it on Raybestos’ official website. Better yet, if you want to go home with the one-off muscle car, you can enter a contest on the site for the chance to win it. All you have to do is fill out some personal information, check out the terms of agreement, and hit enter.
In the past year or so, electric vehicles (EV) have proven that they can be really competitive. You don’t have to take our word for it, though, just take a look at the Electric RaceAbout which got plenty of attention for its bouts on both ice and the Nurburgring. Now that gas prices are on the rise yet again, some companies are fully embracing the fact that electric cars are the future, even in motorsports competition.
This is exactly why Quimera Responsible Racing is preparing to launch a high-performance All Electric Drift Car (AEDC) for the racing season, but they are going to need some help. The car’s official launch is set for October 2012, and before that happens, the team has to decided on the livery that will be used for the racer. This is where all of you come in. All you have to do is enter your designs at Quimerarr.com and get as many Likes as possible. The winner will be awarded with a trip to California’s Irwindale Speedway – aka The House of Drift – for the car’s official unveiling on October 12th and $5000 spending cash.
The All Electric Drift Car’s electric engine will deliver somewhere between 200 - 270 HP and will be powered by super charged lithium iron phosphate batteries with an average range of 150 miles. It can sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.2 seconds, making it one of the fastest electric vehicles.
