Celebrating 75 years of Jeep, Omix-ADA gathered hundreds of Jeep enthusiasts on July 16 to honor its history.
Omix-ADA showcased a custom Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited built in support of SEMA Cares at its Off-Road Success Center during the 2015 SEMA Show in Las Vegas, marking the third time that Omix-ADA has partnered with SEMA Cares over the past three years. The first was with a donation of $50,000 in 2013. Last year, it was with the first-ever offering of a custom-built Jeep Wrangler, with all proceeds going to the charity.
Charities and Student Builders Benefit From an Exciting SEMA Garage Project
The ’15 Omix-ADA Jeep Wrangler JK Sport featured at this past November’s SEMA Show has sold for $85,000 to benefit SEMA Cares charities. The sale came on the Barrett-Jackson auction block on Wednesday, January 16, in Scottsdale, Arizona. Known as the Rugged Ridge/SEMA Cares Jeep, the upfitted, dirt-ready vehicle was originally procured with funds from a 2013 Omix-ADA donation and contained a total of $30,000 in aftermarket parts and accessories from other donor companies, including Falken Tire, Super Chips, Rugged Ridge and Kicker. It was also clad in custom paint by Theresa Contreras from LGE-CTS Motorsports. Perhaps most notably, however, it was customized through a collaboration with the Alex Xydias Center (AXC) for Automotive Arts, in which a team of AXC students modified the standard four-door JK at the new SEMA Garage facility in Diamond Bar, California. All of the proceeds from the Jeep’s auction will go to benefit Childhelp America and Victory Junction.
