For Jacob Cruz, the custom car scene means a whole different meaning than it does for most people. Jacob is a US Army Combat veteran and he uses his 2006 Combat-Vet Edition Jeep Grand Cherokee to promote his non-profit corporation Vets Cruizin' for a Cause.

While in the Army Jacob saw a lot of horrible action and even served on an elite team that was directly involved with the capture of Saddam Hussein. While serving Jacob saw things that the average human wouldn't. Because of this, he decided that he must do something to give back to those that were injured, or worse yet killed, in the line of duty.

When Jacob got home he began work on his 2006 Jeep Grand Cherokee, he wanted to honor his fellow military brothers and sisters in a way that only a soldier could. He decided to build a rolling tribute vehicle and raise money to help those that served our country. As one of the founders of "Vets Cruizin' for a Cause", Jacob and many of his family and friends attend car shows on the weekends to promote their charity and raise money to assist those in need.
For Jacob Cruz, everything on the Grand Cherokee has a meaning. The red symbolizes two things; the blood which was shed in combat and his unit's color.

For Jacob, everything on the Jeep has a meaning. The red symbolizes two things; the blood which was shed in combat and his unit's color. The Black carbon fiber symbolizes the special-ops, or black-ops, he conducted in combat operations.

When it comes to the stance of his ride, he wanted his Jeep to look mean and aggressive so he equipped the Grand Cherokee with 2 Crave Wheels model #25, in black of course, to symbolize Special Operations.

Jacob wanted the ultimate safety for himself and his passengers so he removed the factory interior and installed racing seats with full racing harnesses to protect them under any circumstances. Safety is Jacob's main concern when it comes to those around him.
