Have you guys seen this?




Wheelers for the Wounded is an organization with the goal of providing a weekend of off-roading and camping to our country's wounded military members all over the United States. This will provide them with much deserved fun and excitement as they traverse the most extreme terrain our great country has to offer in a variety of the best off-road capable vehicles ever built.

Upon the completion of the founder's tour in Iraq he will return to the United States and begin an off-roading and camping adventure across our great land which will begin the weekend of April 4-5, 2009. This will enable the wounded servicemen and women to experience the beautiful country they've unselfishly given up so much of their lives for.

Along the way, members of off-road clubs all across the States will host special events for the brave men and women and accompany them on the trails in their area. Riding with the groups will give the wounded military men and women an opportunity to ride along in a variety of modified off-road vehicles which will surely bring smiles to the faces of our esteemed passengers. At nightfall, they will camp out in the most beautiful national parks in the country.

To increase the sensation that an open-air vehicle provides, a brand new 2008 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon has been purchased. The top and doors will be removed which will benefit those who have lost partial eyesight and/or hearing, a common result of I.E.D., E.F.P., rocket and mortar attacks. The Rubicon is currently in the process of being customized and will truly be a one of a kind vehicle.

This in not a political website in support of one party or another, or in support of the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan or against them. The only support here is for the American men and women in uniform.

This is the vehicle the founder will drive during the trip. Take a good look at it because after being heavily modified by Overbuilt Customs of Jacksonville, Florida, it will look like no other.

Man, I wish one of these events was closer to me. I'm not sure I could make it to one of the events planned in my TJ without being wounded by my wife when she saw the gas bill!

Interesting. I posted it on the local jeep club forum since they want a SC event next year.

Thank you very much for posting this Greg. I'm going to move it to the General section as I'd like to see hundreds of WF members getting involved across the country. This is a very valient thing these people are trying to do. I will definitely be posting this locally and will be getting involved with the Arizona event that is planned for May of 2009.

That's awesome! Overbuilt Customs is right up the street from my work. I wonder if their hiring?
