One way to stand out from the crowd is to customize your ride.  Some of the best work we’ve seen is by After FX of Watertown.

They’ve redone a 2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Sport to be raffled off to benefit the Josh Beckett Foundation. The work includes a custom JL audio system with an Alpine DVD Navigation head unit, 20-inch KMC wheels with Nitto tires, and multiple exterior upgrades.

We’ve seen After FX offer custom upholstery, one-of-a-kind wheels, and most recently, an iPad fitted as a removable navigation/computer screen in a Mercedes CLK Black Series.

The Wrangler is scheduled to be raffled off on Aug. 29 at the Beckett Bowl at Boston’s Lucky Strike Lanes. Consolation prizes include autographed Beckett jerseys and Green Monster tickets for a September Red Sox game.

Information is available at  The foundation supports cancer care at Children’s Hospital Boston. Tickets are $100 and only 2,000 will be sold.
