For customizing shops like All Out Offroad in Houston, Texas, car builds are more than show queens and billboards on four wheels. Instead, their builds show off the talent of the individuals behind the scenes and showcase new products (bespoke and manufactured) worldwide. All Out Offroad owner Chance Kamp is no stranger to impressive vehicles, with his own fleet of luxuries and trucks for daily use. Jeeps were just becoming popular in the region at the time of the build, so Chance knew he needed expand his customizing skills to attract more Jeep-loving clients. “I know with each fresh trend and style I need to stay relevant,” Chance admits. “It was time to purchase my first Jeep to customize.”
Chance and his partner Bryan Denhart went to Finnegan Jeep in Houston and picked out a then new 2017 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport in Chance’s favorite color red. Immediately after bringing the Wrangler back to the All Out Offroad headquarters, the black top and everything else that could be removed from the body and interior was taken out and color-matched to the bright red exterior color. A DV8 Avenger hood was added to replace the standard factory version, and VPR front and rear bumpers were installed, along with a tire carrier in the rear. For a more aggressive look, Chance opted for Poison Spyder aluminum standard-width front and rear flares that were color-matched and mounted on the Jeep. The front and rear inner fenders were then custom-built and painted to match.
For the next six months, the Jeep was completely gutted, including its suspension, brakes and interior. The standard braking system was replaced with Baer’s 13.5” front pro brake system with slotted and cross drilled rotors. Six-piston red calipers with custom mounting brackets were added on the rear, while Baer’s 12” SS4 complete brake system was installed for the front. To lift the Jeep off of its basic stance, Michael Benedict added the Rubicon Express 5.5” coilover extreme duty 4-link long arm lift. Each suspension component was coated in the matching fire red to match the rest of the JK. A dual ATS steering stabilizer kit was chosen, along with sway bars and a custom drive shaft.
Now that the body and lift were done to Chance’s liking, it was time to turn up the motor to give the Wrangler a little “giddy-up.” A complete Borla S-type stainless steel exhaust system was installed from the motor back, and a Superchip Flashpaq performance tuner programmer helps add more horsepower. Finally, a K&N cold air intake was put into place for a cleaner flow. Everything under the hood was coated in red to blend into the truck’s color theme.
Inside the Jeep, the stock interior was completely gutted and Alea Leather was also added in the exterior color scheme. All interior plastics were given extra attention to seamlessly blend in with the red interior accents.
As anyone that owns a Jeep knows, the acoustics are amazing and Chance wanted to make them even better by having the stock head unit removed and replaced with an Alpine DVD unit. Hertz speakers were lined throughout the cabin for superior sounds. Under the rear seats, he strategically placed two JL Audio 10TW3 flat subwoofers powered by two JL Audio amplifiers built into enclosed cases underneath the front seats. The guys over at American Force Wheels helped with the matching 24” Rook wheels powder coated red and black, then fitted them inside Nitto Trail Grapplers.
With everything almost complete, Chance and his team added the finishing touches by mounting a Warn ZEON 10-S Platinum winch with Factor 55 shackle up front. AMI Demon hooks were painted to match and installed on the bumpers. DV8 Offroad Rock Rail power steps were affixed for an easier time getting in and out of the Wrangler. The lighting system was upgraded with JW Speaker headlights and custom-painted tail lights in the rear. Rigid rock lights were mounted underneath to make sure the undercarriage and work done to the suspension didn’t go unnoticed.
Chance and his team at All Out Offroad were able to rebuild the Jeep from the ground up in just under six full months inside their Richmond, Texas location showing how quickly their team can work. With five different All Out Offroad locations and growing, Chance certainly has the right pedigree to success. His 2017 Jeep Wrangler was first purchased to prove that he could build an impressive 4×4 in the age of Jeeps, but the project quickly turned into one of his go-to vehicles, which he enjoys cruising in any time he gets. He wishes to thank his entire team at All Out and his partner, Bryan Denhart, for all the help and making his life easier on a day-to-day basis!
