PAOLI, Pa. (December 7th, 2020) – Off-road e-retailer, ExtremeTerrain (XT) releases another episode of its “Customer Builds” YouTube series. In this episode, host Merideth Evasew speaks with a customer from Massachusetts about his 2012 trail-built Jeep JK and his restored TJ. The interview series aims to inform and inspire the Jeep community in a format that’s easy to digest. XT’s build pages add to each episode by including additional images, as well as a full breakdown of the mods installed.

Owner, John Shea’s JK Wrangler shines when it comes to being off-road ready. He’s “armored just about everything [he] could possibly find to armor,” giving him peace of mind on any terrain. As a life-long camper, John puts his rooftop tent and Jeep roof rack to good use. He comments on the thoughtful design, the protection it provides, and how easy it is to use.  In addition to his armor, Meredith and John go over a number of other key mods including his bumper mounted light bar, rock sliders, neoprene seat covers, and recovery kit. John is aiming for extra ground clearance and plans to add a 3-inch lift and 35-inch tires.

The restored TJ was purchased new in 2001. With its age starting to show, John made a few key upgrades. In addition to bodywork, John replaced the door and tailgate hinges, installed a hood kit, and a new Jeep soft top. Future plans include chrome step rails, a Jeep grille insert, and some additional “bling” as requested by its driver, John’s wife Jenny.

PAOLI, Pa. (November 23rd, 2020) – Turn5, Inc. continues its scholarship program announcing three new winners for the spring 2021 semester. Turn5 is the parent company of ExtremeTerrain (XT), AmericanMuscle (AM), and AmericanTrucks (AT), each with its own unique scholarship program. Based on original essay submissions, the Philadelphia-based e-commerce retailer has selected MyKenna Zettle, Andrew Pankratz, and Daniel Hartman to receive $2500 towards their tuition fees for the upcoming semester.

XT’s scholarship is awarded to students pursuing biology or a related environmental studies degree. In response to the essay question, MyKenna from the University of Pittsburgh at Bradford talked about her interest in translational ecology and her own experiences growing up in rural Pennsylvania. She believes that “science should be made accessible for any audience, no matter their socioeconomic or educational background.” MyKenna’s $2500 award will be applied towards her double-major in environmental studies and biology.

Daniel Hartman from the Universal Technical Institute (UTI) is the recipient of AM’s $2500 auto-focused scholarship program. Daniel’s interest in cars was piqued at an early age watching his father do engine work and help his friends mod their vehicles. Eventually, this inspired him to take performance classes as UTI. Fueled by his passion and curiosity, Daniel aspires to apply his education to do outstanding work while working toward his goal of making an all-electric American muscle car.

Finally, Andrew Pankratz is AT’s scholarship winner and will receive $2500 towards his spring 2021 tuition. Andrew’s essay focused on how he plans to use his education to contribute to a thriving community of trade workers who are dedicated to a hands-on approach to learning. Andrew is a fourth-generation woodworker who is turning his passion into a career by majoring in Architectural Carpentry at the American College of the Building Arts.

Turn5 unveiled its first scholarship program in 2013 and since then has given $117, 000 to students across the United States. The XT, AM, and AT scholarship programs are awarded bi-annually with application deadlines in June and October. Interested high-school seniors, or full-time university/college/tech students pursuing relevant degrees, are invited to send in their essays for the fall 2021 semester.

How to Shop Jeep Tops | New Video

ExtremeTerrain Helps Wrangler Enthusiasts Make the Right Choice

PAOLI, Pa. (November 4th, 2020) – Off-road aftermarket parts retailer, ExtremeTerrain (XT) releases a video buyer’s guide to help Wrangler owners shop for tops. Hosted by XT’s Merideth Evasew, the video highlights 3 kinds of hardtops and 4 types of soft tops. Each top is shown installed on XT’s jeeps with availability for all generations on XT’s product pages.

The video begins with Merideth’s recommendations when shopping hardtops. The one-piece is her choice for a traditional squareback design that’s simple and cost-effective. The two-piece design with its removable front panel offers more in terms of flexibility. For a more aggressive look, improved aerodynamics, and handling, the fastback/slant back fits the bill. Moving on to choosing the best soft top, the selection is varied with everything from a complete replacement top to a bikini top or brief top. Merideth’s detailed breakdown of each of the hardtop and soft top options leaves viewers ready to navigate XT’s product pages with know-how.

XT’s new Jeep tops video clarifies what to look for when shopping for an aftermarket hardtop or soft top. The video is part of XT’s continuing efforts to educate their customers and help them make a purchase they will be satisfied with. Wrangler owners and enthusiasts are invited to check out the new How to Shop Tops video and subscribe to XT’s YouTube channel to stay in-the-know when new videos are released.
