Everybody loves Jeeps, but when you're 7-foot-1, a little extra legroom would be a welcome addition. That's just what West Coast Customs did for its latest Jeep build for Shaquille O'Neal. But WCC didn't have to resort to any frame-cutting to give the basketball star the Jeep of his dreams.
That's not to say Shaq's custom Wrangler isn't extensively modified. To give Shaq the legroom he needs, the team started with a Wrangler Unlimited chassis, which stretches a generous 20.6 inches longer than the standard two-door Wrangler. To give the vehicle more natural-looking proportions, the front and rear doors on each side were fused to create two longer doors, and the front seats were set back an appropriate amount to give the long-legged star room to comfortably cruise on or off-road.
Among the custom touches on the Jeep are a BASF matte black paint job, Oracle accent lighting, Rigid Industries off-road lights, a Magnaflow exhaust, Poison Spyder bumpers and rockers, a Smittybilt winch, and Fuel wheels. The interior features Roadwire leather seats and a custom Pioneer audio system.
The custom Wrangler is just the latest of many vehicles WCC has built for Shaq. The episode of Inside West Coast Customs that documented the Shaq Jeep build aired this past Sunday on Discovery's Velocity Channel. Check your local listings for airtimes.
