ACM | 4 doors and supercharged

Some of you may not know it, but here at AUTOcouture Motoring we also have an off road division better known as ACOR 4x4. One of our techs has a long time background in Jeeps. He has done everything from the simple bolt on lift kits, diff gear builds, supercharger installs all the way to custom frame fabrications just to name a few. As we do with BMW's we also maintain Jeeps and their needs which leads us to this blue JKU.

This Jeep was built by Starwood Motors out of Texas. It is a RIPP supercharged Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited. One of their signatures is rhino lining the jeeps as well as going with blowers, lifts and wheels depending on the stage that you choose.

Some of you may this owner better as the guy with the Manhart Wide body Lime Rock Edition M3, but this is winter commuter. He wanted to change a few things up on the truck this year so he went with Walker Evans Racing wheels, Fox shocks and BDS springs, Goodyear Duratrac 35" tires and AEV rear bumper with 5 gallon water tank concealed. We just finished the truck up today and figured you guys would enjoy seeing another supercharged vehicle from Bill's lineup because at the end of the day we're all car people





























In the spirit of Halloween and in preservation of the M3 section here's one of Bill's other toys...the Manhart Racing Pumpkin

This is what I want! Great job! I love the colour and everything about this car!

So there's the vorsteiner front bumper and hood. Is the owner going to opt for the Widebody GTRS3 kit at some time?

Maz that is no typical voresteiner hood. That is the manhart hood. Absolutely mean looking hood.

OP of the M and the jeep. Nice job of the jeep that is mean.

If you are a skier or boarder and head up to VT. I live in MA as you so come grab me in a blizzard so we can get fresh snow! I'm almost positive my X5M won't handle 80% of the terrain that thing can!

Oh wow, the Manhart hood looks sick.

Thank you for the positive feedback on the rides gentlemen. Looking forward to winter with the new setup on the Jeep. Two fun projects and the guys at ACM are awesome to deal with.

Matt - thanks for posting some photos - love your work man.

Here's a quick one from a weekend shoot with the M3

Love the Jeep. Makes me miss mine something fierce. Really lovely work. Would love to see the interior. You need to get a snorkel on her and take her out for a swim.

I'm curious what sort of textured paint that is. Would love to know more.

Hey man thanks! The finish is a Kevlar infused paint done by Starwood Motors in Texas. They have some pretty sick Jeeps u can check out online.

The ride was a little too harsh for my taste as a daily for fall/winter but with the new shocks and springs the guys at ACM installed it is 100 percent better and I am enjoying it so much more now.
