Default Hank Graff & Ducks unlimited Wrangler build

Hey fellow Jeep enthusiasts & sportsmen,

Below is a link to the Ducks Unlimited Jeep Wrangler donated by and being built at HankGraffDavison.com ....We are going through it mechanically as well as the body build...It should be completed by the April 21st....We will be taking it to several DU events held at local chapters over the next 12 months. It will be raffled in February 2011. ....5000 tickets at 10.00....The Wrangler and it's build is being donated to Ducks Unlimited by HankGraffDavison.com ....PPG donated the tri-stage pearl hunter orange paint. Really some great product, it is a waterborne product and is in keeping with DU's conservation/environmental efforts. In addition to Hank Graff Davison's exclusive use of PPG waterborne paints, it is committed to the conservation of the environment by it's exclusive use of full downdraft work stations and paint booths, total recycling of metal, paper and plastics.....In addition to the DU events, the Wrangler will been stationed at local businesses in the area in the coming year...it will be on display at Back to the Bricks car show and cruise this coming August...Might occasionally be seen at the Mounds in Mount Morris, Mi. as a "rescue vehicle" for lesser Jeeps and 4X4s needing a tug out of the mud. As the build nears completion the linked page will include specifics about the Wrangler's set up and of course, many more pictures.

Are you affiliated with Trout Unlimited in any way?

Good, because we HATE Trout Unlimited. Picture a KKK meeting with one person stumbling in that really doesnt belong there....

So, it will look like a stock orange jeep with black rims and street tires?

Tri-stage pearl orange , inside and out except floor pans done in black Linex...mild lift with improved suspension. Wheels ?. I am unclear what they will be, They are due in this morning and tires will 31's or 32's, I will know later this morning.... it will appear for the most part stock. The center section of the dash face is in body color....we are located in Davison and are only the builder, hankgraffdavison.com ...we are building and donating to DU, mid- Michigan... chapters that will have it at their events are in Lapeer, Oakland and Genessee counties I beleive.

Absolutely no offense but these 2 don't really go together

Good luck, really like the color and if there is anything you need for this build give me a shout!

Thanks Pat, We appreciate your offer to help, we are always looking for more sources....I looked at your website and it is very well done....your new partnership looks exciting....Rocks and Valleys....Great Video!.....What I meant about "lesser Jeeps" is...I was hung up at the Mounds in my old, nasty Cherokee that had no business being there and it also had a less than capable driver (me) getting her in trouble....We do not intend to tear the build up (Would like it to still look good and function well) when DU gives it away next February. We are installing a winch and we'll have plenty of rope and offer help when we are able......The DU wrangler is /will be available to go places and look good if you have or can suggest places for it to be parked.... We are glad to round up a driver and move it from place to place in Michigan in between DU events..... If you have a sticker or logo for your company, send it to me and I'll display it for you as Wrangler travels around.
