Check Out the 5 Jeeps Secured for High School Vehicle Builds

By Katie Hurst

Five Jeep Wrangler TJ’s have been secured by SEMA for the High School Vehicle Build Program. Five high schools across the country have been selected to participate as build partners for the 2019 program which provides students with and educational hands-on customization experience. Through these SEMA-funded builds, high school auto shop programs will be connected with aftermarket manufacturers in a unique way.

Hundreds of high school students will learn about and install aftermarket products to customize their school’s Jeep TJ. The customization effort, which is enhanced by manufacturer support, will primarily focus on suspension, wheels/tires, interior and exterior accessories. Companies are invited to support the 2019 builds by donating product(s). Opportunities for product demonstrations and scheduled school visits are also available.
