High-end sporting lifestyle brand, Ball and Buck has introduced a cool Jeep CJ-8 ARB Overland edition. The modified Jeep gets Ball and Buck interiors and a wide range of off-road-capable features. The brand is sourcing these rare and sought after models from all over the country, which are then sent to Kyle Smith of Original Bird Buggy in Georgia. It is here, in Georgia, that these models get their Ball and Buck overland treatment.
The interiors of the custom Jeep CJ-8 ARB Overland Edition feature Ball and Buck’s signature camouflage. The cabin of the custom-built off-roader gets GPS and air-conditioning. It also flaunts leather interior features and solid brass trim. An integrated shotgun sleeve and a pocket knife are also part of the ensemble.
ARB Overland Equipment Highlights:
- ARB Safari Snorkel air intake
- ARB Base Rack System
- ARB Intensity LED Flood/Spot Lights
- Custom Designed High-Grade Steel Bumpers with Shackles
- Quadratec Rear Flood Lights
- Raceline Alloy Wheels
Ball and Buck also laid down a rugged Bedliner protection, LED headlights, and hand-carved boards that are made of sinker cypress- a type of wood harvested from the bottom of Southern rivers. Furthermore, the Jeep also comes equipped with a 2000-pound rated trailer hitch, stainless steel bumpers in the rear, and paired up with a Ball and Buck dog crate.
Customers can choose the exterior trim, color, transmission, and engine options when they place their orders. The exterior trim options are polished stainless steel or matte black. As for colors, Ball and Bucks offer four geographic themes- Sutton Black, Coronado Sand, Chesapeake Gray, and Everglades Green.
There are two powertrains to choose from. These include a 4.2-liter inline-six paired to a four-speed manual transmission, or an LS3 6.0-liter V-8 crate engine, which can be paired to a five-speed manual or automatic transmission. For the more environmentally conscious customers, there is also a Cummins turbo-diesel option.
The 2.8-liter inline-four diesel is paired to a five-speed manual transmission. Prices for these hand-built custom Jeeps start at $125,000, and Ball and Buck takes about six to twelve months to deliver the final product.
