A Bulletproof @Bombshell_jku 4×4 With Genright Offroad Elite Kit

A few weeks ago, Off Road Xtreme was invited out on a trail run in Sedona, Arizona. There was a great mix of vehicles and of course some super awesome Jeeps. One rig dubbed, @Bombshell_jku, caught our eye and for a couple of reasons. The first was it was just a nice clean build. The second and main reason was we knew it was seriously capable and a purpose built off-road vehicle just by looking at all of the parts on it. 

Without further ado meet the @Bombshell_jku built by Cord Killinger.

“Bombshell is the byproduct of an LJ build that I ran out of time for. Originally the Jeep LJ was going to become a GenRight Offroad Legend Kit build that I would put together,”  Killinger tells us. “I eventually let it go to start putting together my dream/forever build. Being a Transformers kid and a touch of renaissance-man, I liked Bombshell the transformer and wanted to build a big sexy rig that was functional off-road. And for sure it had to draw more looks parked next to one of the exotics out here in Scottsdale.”

The @Bombshell_jku Had To Work As Good As It Looked

“Why GenRight? Well, I wanted bullet proof performance. I wanted speed, articulation, and reliability. The Legend Kit was the best balance of what I had looked at before, so the Elite Kit was the next natural choice. The big draw for me was its race-inspired/tested foundation. GenRight’s slogan of built by wheelers for wheelers really resonated with me.”

Cord Carefully Planned Out And Vetted All Of The @Bombshell_jku Parts

“Life happens, and an accident later, I needed a new vehicle. My wife gave me the thumbs up to buy a brand new 2017 Jeep JKU Sport S with eleven miles on it. I, or she rather, elected the four door version. So, with the previous plans to go GenRight, I naturally started looking at the Elite Kit again. We planned a day with GenRight Offroad and their Motorsports team at the end of February 2018 and came home awestruck. I was sold.” 

“In October of 2018, Bombshell went to GenRight and I picked it up a week before my Birthday in December. I drove it to Big Bear that afternoon and down to Cougar Buttes. The next day, we went back home to Scottsdale, Arizona. I have been pushing my driving skills and pushing the Jeep to the limits ever since.”

Off Road Xtreme was definitely stoked to see this thing out on the trail. It worked as good as it looked and as you can see by the pictures Cord has provided, he uses it a lot. Look for this awesome Jeep Wrangler getting rowdy out in the desert’s of Arizona or give @Bombshell_jku  a follow on Instagram.
