Amazon is kicking off September by giving away a custom built 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited to one lucky automotive customer. Along with the sweepstakes, Amazon will also be providing discounts of up to 40-percent off select Jeep parts and accessories for the entire month of September. This event marks the first time in its 18 year history that Amazon has given away a vehicle, a radically modified Jeep no less!
The 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, dubbed the Orange Crusher, has been built to conquer any terrain and features a 4-inch Rugged Ridge ORV lift kit to clear the 35-inch Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ tires mounted on hyper silver Rugged Ridge alloy wheels with color matched simulated beadlock rings. A set of heavy duty Rugged Ridge skid plates protect the underside of the Jeep from sharp rocks while crawling around trails. An XHD modular bumper with high-clearance ends offers plenty of protection without getting the Jeep hung up on obstacles. A Rugged Ridge 8500-pound performance winch ensures the big Jeep can pull itself out of any sticky situation. Since most Jeep enthusiast love playing in the great outdoors, a Rugged Ridge roof rack offers plenty of space to mount a kayak or mountain bike as well as HID lights to illuminate the darkest nights. To give the Jeep a little more power under the hood, the Orange Crusher Jeep was outfitted with a Rugged Ridge cat-back dual exhaust system.
Just in case the Orange Crusher Jeep needs to ford any deep rivers or mud pits, a modular XHD snorkel system will ensure it can make the trek across. As in any off-road truck, getting a flat is inevitable and part of the cost of playing in the dirt which is why the Orange Crusher features a heavy duty rear mounted jack.
The cost of a new Jeep Wrangler Unlimited with these types of modifications is valued at $45,531, but luckily, you can enter for a chance to win this orange beast.
The deadline for sweepstakes entries is 11:59 PM PT on September 30, 2013. Amazon Automotive Jeep Giveaway rules, entry form, and promotion details are available at http://www.amazon.com/jeepgiveaway

Jeep Beach is an event put on every year in Daytona Beach, Florida, by the Mid Florida Jeep Club. The title sponsors that help make it all possible are Rugged Ridge and BF Goodrich. Rugged Ridge has been telling us what fun the event is for years, but from the pictures and information we’ve seen, we haven’t been all that convinced. This year, the company finally wore us down and we went out to Jeep Beach for the first time—now we wish we had gone to the event sooner.
From the pictures you can see it isn’t another Moab Easter Jeep Safari or a Tierra Del Sol Desert Safari and…well, it isn’t. But that doesn’t mean it isn’t a lot of fun in its own right, and the growing number of participants every year bears that out. The 2013 event marked the 10th anniversary of the five-day Jeep Beach gathering, which is held towards the end of April. It all started on Wednesday night with a kickoff party and was nonstop fun until the parade and pool party on Sunday. Thursday featured a Scavenger Hunt where you needed to find items and landmarks and shoot a picture of yourself at the backdrop. The pictures then got entered for a drawing at that night’s Cruise-In. Friday was registration day and a small vendor show at the host hotel where participants could meet some of the key players behind some of the industry’s coolest parts and Jeeps. Saturday was a full day with a much bigger vendor show, a Show-n-Shine, and an Obstacle Course, all in the infield of the motor speedway while NASCAR cars ran practice laps around the course. There was also a raffle Saturday afternoon, and Sunday started off bright and early with a massive Jeep parade along a couple of miles of Daytona Beach, followed by a pool party.
Unlike many of the other events we attend, this one has a strict Jeep-only policy that makes it that much better for us at a Jeep-only magazine. If you’ve got a Jeep and don’t mind the drive down there, you might want to check out next year’s event. Dates are still pending as of press time, but look at jeepbeach.com for updates after checking out just some of the fun that was had this year.
