Mall Assault: 2015 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon

Written by Kristie Bertucci | Photos: Jason Bukolt
In the customization game, it’s all about making your ride stand out from the rest, choosing the right parts to make that happen or just fabricating your own. Fab Fours is well known for creating their own mods that are anything but ordinary.
Take for example their THE LEGEND and THE LEGEND 2.WOAH – two out-of-the-box Jeep builds that feature insane additions to create a truly unique vehicles. They also have KRYPTON which is a 2015 Ford SuperDuty F-350 that rides on massive 40” tires with no lift!

But before bringing these outrageous mods to the market, they have to test them out on their own project vehicles and Fab Fours’ VP of Sales and Marketing Matt McShane’s Jeep was one of them. The company is all about the off-road lifestyle, given owner and CEO Greg Higgs worked hard to turn his rock crawling hobby into a career. So when it came time to purchase a new vehicle, it only made sense to go with something that can handle any trails and there are few, if any, other vehicles that are more than capable of that than a Jeep. Add in the fact that Fab Fours has a very aggressive new product initiative for the JK and it made perfect sense to make his ride a test rig.

“I wanted a show queen that I could drive everyday,” McShane describes, which is why he called it “Mall Assault.” Originally, I didn’t have much of a purpose for this build other than having a mildly modified JK to show off some of our best selling Jeep products,” he says. “But with the great exposure from THE LEGEND builds coupled with a handful of hot new products, the build morphed into what you see today. It has now become the face of our newest Jeep JK products including the Grumper (our grille/bumper combination), The ViCowl (our visor/cowl combination) and brand new fender system.”

With no initial design in mind, the only thing McShane knew was that he wanted to utilize the company’s black and red colors, as well as use a silver metallic as the base color of choice. Using the best products in the industry, McShane dressed the entire exterior in Fab Fours parts and went with a modest Rubicon Express 5.5” Extreme Duty 4-link long arm lift kit with a front and rear FOX coilover upgrade kit with Air Bumps stops. This allowed him to fit 24x12 American Force Vector FP5 wheels wrapped in 38X13.50R24LT Nitto Trail Grapplers. Power was added via a BD Diesel Performance Throttle Sensitivity Booster and Magnaflow Cat-Back Rock Crawler Series exhaust system. The interior sports a Bedrug BedTred and a custom Katzkins leather black interior surrounded with red carbon fiber inserts and red stitching. “I absolutely love the way the build looks and performs right now,” he mentions. “I’m sure it will go through a few more changes, but I couldn’t be happier. Actually, I wouldn’t mind putting in a supercharger and exotic sound system… but all in due time.” Aside from being his daily driver, the Jeep will continue to be the face of the Fab Fours Jeep JK new product line and will be at as many shows as it can before the next Jeep takes over as new products are created.
