This Week In Jeep:
Jeep Wrangler Celebrity Customs
Back on episode 350, we broke the news about a new web series tv show that is airing celebrities competing in a Jeep Wrangler Design contest. The show is called Jeep Wrangler Celebrity Customs, and it’s getting a lot of attention. This of course might be in part due to the celebrities they feature alongside some pretty sick Jeeps. Some pretty big names and one pretty face have so far graced the show with their presence. But aside from that it appears as if this has turned from a celebrity challenge, to a battle of the sexes. For years vehicle customization and off roading were predominantly a male driven sport. Over the last 5 or ten years this has been blown out of the water as more and more women find they’ve been bitten by the jeep bug, or enjoy the outdoors more than their male counterparts. And when it comes to designing cool Jeep Wrangler concepts in an online competition, it turns out that women are a little better than men at this…. well Maria Menounos is at least. The SiriusXM host thrashed the competition to create her dream Jeep, as she beat out baseball legend Alex Rodriguez and NYC restaurant media platform The Infatuation’s Andrew Steinthal and Chris Stange at the big reveal Wednesday night. As a huge Boston Red Sox fan, Maria Menounos came armed with plenty of trash-talking — mostly aimed at her New York Yankees nemesis A-Rod. Menounos’ winning four-wheeled creation had a teal blue and white, Venice Beach theme going, and came complete with a dog bed, treats holder and a makeup compact on the steering wheel. Meanwhile, A-Rod’s futuristic design looked like it had been driven off a set for Battlestar Galactica.
2018 has been one hell of a year for Jeep Rollovers
An Oklahoma grandfather is being credited with saving his 13-year-old grandson’s life earlier this month after the Jeep they were traveling in during an off-roading trip fell 150 feet off a New Mexico cliff. 63 yr old Jerry Greenough, of Yukon, died Sept. 2 on a trip to Red River with his son-in-law, Tony Kerley, of Edmond, and twin grandsons, Austyn and Tyler Kerley. Tyler was with his dad in their Jeep and Austyn was with his grandfather, who the boys called Papa, in his Jeep when the vehicle went off the side of the mountain as they descended. Austyn managed to use the CB radio to call for help before the Jeep began rolling. His brother relived the moment everything went wrong. “We got stuck on a rock and, so, my Papa tried to floor (the) Jeep to get it over the rock, and the rock slid out and we just rolled down the hill,” Austyn said. Greenough did all he could to protect his grandson. Recognizing the moment for what it was, Jerry grabbed a hold of his grandson, and just cocooned him during the violent rollover. Wrapping his arms around the boy tight, he protected him from as much as he could as the Jeep rolled down the side of the mountain. Austyn recalled the moments before he was ejected from the Jeep. He says: “I remember his arms around me, because I held onto his right sleeve all the way down until he let go of me and I lost grip and flew out,” the teen said.
