The custom 1990 Jeep Wrangler YJ, dubbed the WD-40(R) Specialist(R) Xtreme Machine, has an aluminum body and tube chassis and is equipped with an LS engine, 42-inch tires and coilovers all the way around. At the show, it will be located at featured vehicle spot NL04 in the hallway outside of the North Hall.

PowerNation, a two-hour block of four automotive shows that air on NBC Sports Network, SpikeTV, the CBS Sports Network, PowerNationTV.com and the PowerNationTV app, includes “Xtreme Off-Road,” “Engine Power,” “Truck Tech” and “Detroit Muscle.” The WD-40 Specialist Xtreme Machine vehicle build will be featured on two episodes of “Xtreme Off-Road” in January 2015, with a sweepstakes to give away the vehicle running Jan. 2 – May 31, 2015.

“TV viewers will get to see the hard work and attention to detail that went into building the WD-40 Specialist Xtreme Machine before putting their hat into the ring to win it via the sweepstakes,” said Tim Lesmeister, vice president of marketing for WD-40 Company. “The PowerNation team did a phenomenal job building something that’s both head-turning and unique, and the guys used a lot of our top-of-the-line WD-40 Specialist products in the process.”

Ian Johnson, host of PowerNation’s “Xtreme Off-Road,” will be signing autographs at the SEMA Show inside WD-40 Company’s booth (#12133) from 1:30-3 p.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 4 and from 10-11:30 a.m. on Wednesday, Nov. 5.
