In a secret hangar in the middle of the desert, Todd Holzwarth is planning his attack. His secret weapon, a 2015 Jeep Grand Cherokee Altitude 4x4 with custom 4” lift, massive rubber, supercharged engine and more off-road gear than Arnold Schwarzenegger’s military Hummer.
The list of modifications and gear reads like a wish list for the average guy sitting in his garage staring at his stock WK2. RIPP Supercharger, Intercooler & Diablo engine tune +++ 20x8.5 Black Rhino Mozambique “ROTARY FORGED" wheels, with big 305/55R20 Nitto Ridge Grappler rubber +++ Warn Zeon 10s Platinum Winch +++ JBA Offroad Upper Control Arms +++ Eagle Eye LED Headlights from Anzo Garage +++ ZAutotach Tazer OBDII Canbus Controller +++ PIAA LED Driving Lights +++ Wilco Offroad Hitchgate Solo Spare Carrier +++ Custom Vinyl from EAWraps +++ MGP Caliper Covers +++ Yakima Roof Rack +++ Mopar Rock Sliders, Front Axle Skid, Transfer Skid & Fuel Tank Skids +++ Bolt Locks +++ Airaid Intake System +++ Magnaflow Dual Catback Exhaust +++ Custom 4” Lift +++ Napier Outdoors Sports SUV Tent +++ Heaps of Chief Products gear [WK2 Nudge Bar, WK2 Lower Front Guard, Wk2 Sump Protection Plate, WK2 Recovery Hooks, WK2 Transmission Protection Plate, WK2 Hidden Winch Mount, WK2 Hawse Winch Fairlead & WK2 Rear Bumper Guard].
Sitting in the cockpit of this rock inspired WK2 makes for a quick grin, thanks to the custom exhaust and supercharged engine working together in musical harmony. Out on the trails tackling the rugged Arizona landscape, you often see highly modified Wrangler drivers wrenching their neck to see more. It’s a testament to Todd’s dedication to purpose-built modifications. If you're privileged to see Todd’s secret weapon up close, you immediately realise this build is not the typical trailer-queen-beauty-pageant-polish-off, it’s an internally combustible rock crawler with large rubber and real dirt under the frame.
We’ve enjoyed working with Todd to help create his secret weapon. His knack for creating slick off-road machines, immediately made us kindred spirits. We were there on day one, and we’ve just sent him new gear to help tackle his post SEMA blues.
