Taya Kyle, the wife of American Sniper, Chris Kyle has today launched a special edition Jeep Wrangler in her husband’s honor at the SEMA Show in Las Vegas.
The Chris Kyle “The Legend” Jeep range has been developed by McKinney, Texas company, Complete Customs and will be available for sale through select Jeep Dealers in North America.
“Complete Customs came to us with this concept of producing a Jeep in Chris’ honor and when we heard the interest that being shown by project partners and the Jeep dealers, we were seriously amazed,” said Taya Kyle.
“The vehicle had to be a reflection of Chris’ love of the outdoors and allow us to raise awareness of the activities of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation with veteran and first responder families.”
The Chris Kyle “The Legend” Jeep has been built to be the ultimate outdoor recreation 4×4 and will look just as tough cruising the streets as in the great outdoors.
“This is more than just a project for the Complete Customs team – we’re bringing two American Legends together – Chris Kyle and the Jeep Wrangler – you can’t get much more American than that,” said Shaun Freilich, owner of Complete Customs. “It is a labor of love for our team. As soon as Taya started talking to us, we knew there was a lot more to this story than what has been well documented.
“The Chris Kyle “The Legend” Jeeps give us the opportunity to produce a kickass custom 4×4 but also give back to the community through the work of the Chris Kyle Frog Foundation and what it is doing for the veteran and first responder community.
“Our supplier network, the Jeep dealers we’ve spoken to, indeed Taya and her team, along with all our staff and families are heavily invested and behind this deal. We’re also meeting with many more suppliers at SEMA to finalize the specifications of the retail product.”
The two Chris Kyle “The Legend” Jeeps that were unveiled at SEMA will be used as show cars and then auctioned off early next year – with the funds raised from the Blue version going direct to the Foundation and the Brown version going to assist Taya and her family.
“There are a number of Jeep dealers that will be selling the Chris Kyle Jeeps to the public, but we ask that if you are interested in buying one that you approach your local Jeep dealer to contact us,” Mr. Freilich concluded.
