This week’s build features a Green and Orange 2008 JKU that @joeybouchard uses to ass-kick MS (multiple sclerosis) and allows him to keep the adventure going.

Joey picked the Rescue Green and Orange accents as Orange is the color of MS. A disease that he had since 1998. Coincidentally his favorite color is Orange and the Rescue Green just added more character to his ass-kicking rig he calls Swamp Donkey.

Joey’s Swamp Donkey is all lit with KC, starting from his Pro6 light bar on to his 6″ Daylighter LED pair pack on the windshield to the Gravity® LED 7″ Headlight Pair Pack to the KC Gravity G4 LED fog lights and finishing the front is a KC FLEX™ 20″ light bar on the grill. Since this is an ass-kicking rig, Joey made sure that Swamp Donkey has plenty of lights when rock crawling at night with a set of Cyclone Rock Light Kit. On the backside, it’s complete with KC FLEX™ single system used for back-up lights.
