Officer Chris Dorman is your quintessential Jeeper. He eats, sleeps, and breathes all things Jeep when he isn’t on duty working for the Folcroft Police Department. He’s even gone as far to sleep in his Jeep when it got stuck during an off-roading excursion, waiting for a recovery the next morning. That’s dedication; a level of commitment that permeates throughout Officer Dorman’s life, from his family and his duty as an Officer to his love for his Wrangler. When ExtremeTerrain got a call from Officer Dorman’s Jeep club to help build his Jeep, they took the opportunity to transform his Wrangler into a modded-out mudder he would love.
One Officer’s Trying Story
What ended up as an over-the-top JK Wrangler build with a surprise reveal, started off as an act of kindness after a horrible tragedy. In June 2016, Officer Dorman was responding to a call when he was shot seven times. The horrendous attack left Officer Dorman in severe condition and in need of several surgeries, with a lengthy road to recovery after.
When learning of the incident and his condition, the Southern Delaware Jeep Club (SDJC) – Officer Dorman’s Jeep club – wanted to surprise him by upgrading his Jeep. The SDJC came together and began pooling their resources, looking for whatever parts they could get donated for the build. Knowing he had been a customer of the site, the SDJC initially reached out to ExtremeTerrain looking for a bumper and winch, but upon hearing the situation they decided to step up and offer a total overhaul for the Officer’s JK.
George brought his son’s Jeep to ExtremeTerrain, where it would receive a total transformation. Steven Voudouris, the CEO of ExtremeTerrain, spoke of his company’s involvement. “I’m proud of our team for building such a mean-looking and capable jeep for officer Dorman. Projects like this are what makes the Jeep community great.”
