Tornado-Stricken Community Gets an Assist from One Man's Jeep Wrangler


The EF5 tornado in Moore, Oklahoma was certainly a tragic event. At Russ Darrow Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM of West Bend, we're sending good vibes their way, in hopes of a full recovery. We'd also like to share with all of you a story we read about one Jeep model in the impacted area that made us feel good.

A Jeep Wrangler Rubicon called "Stumper" aided many people in the aftermath of the tornado by helping them out of their homes, assisting first responders, and much more using its 8,000 pound winch and tow cable. It was able to do it all after being right in the tornado's path, too.

Bryan Hutton was visiting his family in Moore when the sirens sounded for people to take shelter. He locked his Jeep up in the garage and rode out the tornado safely. After seeing the result, he knew Stumper could help out; he just didn't know if it managed to make it through. Thankfully, it did, though damaged. He then set out to help others, knowing it was probably the Wrangler's last ride.

But, after aiding others in a time of need, Hutton is getting an assist too. It's coming from Crocker Off-Road Performance, who heard about his story, and intend to repair Stumper, while adding a few custom parts, as modification specialists are known to do.

At Russ Darrow Chrysler Jeep Dodge RAM of West Bend, we think that's pretty cool. To learn more about the rugged and reliable new Jeep lineup, stop in and see us in our West Bend, WI showroom. We'd be happy to answer any questions you might have, and arrange test drives in models that grab your attention.
