Columbiana, OH (PRWEB) October 03, 2013
Prominent provider of aftermarket Jeep parts and accessories, 4WD, has awarded Chris Jurden of Lake Stevens, Washington as the winner of its Jeepers vs. Zombies Sweepstakes September drawing. Jurden, owner of five Jeeps, won a set of Truck-Lite LED headlights when he was randomly selected from over ten thousand entrants. Launched in early September, the sweepstakes will award a Smittybilt X2O 8,000 pound winch in October and a set of 4 Pro Comp Tires in November.
"I called my wife and told her I won something and she said it figures it would have to do with zombies," says Jurden. "It was neat to win something because I enter 4 Wheel Parts and 4WD contests all the time." Jurden plans to add the lights to his 2013 Wrangler Unlimited. He’s such a big fan of zombies that he had a friend of his custom make decals for his Jeep that say Zombie Wrangler Edition.
In addition to the random winner, Christina Riga of East Northport, New York will be awarded a $100 4WD gift certificate and t-shirt for accumulating the most bonus points. Points are given when entrants share the url with their Jeep and truck friends on social platforms or like 4WD on Facebook.
Riga recently bought a sport green 1998 TJ that needs some work and the 4WD gift certificate will get her started. "I’ve wanted a Jeep since I was five-years-old and I named mine Frankenstein," she says.
"We’ve had an unprecedented number of entries in our undead giveaway and 4WD is happy to be the group that keeps on giving," says 4WD Website Manager Kelly Young. "Our recent Jeep Jamboree was proof positive that the combination of Jeeps and zombies is a winning one."
The 15th annual 4WD Jamboree in Columbiana, Ohio featured a theme tent with people made up as zombies, fog machines, and a life-sized photo of a zombie-killing machine Jeep. Attendees snapped up Jeepers vs. Zombies t-shirts and accessories to help them survive the coming zombie apocalypse.
Jeepers vs. Zombies sweepstakes entrants receive a free Zombie Hunting Permit decal and 4WD catalog when they supply their address. They can enter each month to win the different giveaways. Among the comments online are "Getting geared up for the zombie apocalypse with 4WD!" and "Jeeps, zombies and free stuff! What’s not to like?"
YouTube videos on the entry page promote the Jeep parts giveaways by tapping into the 4x4 community’s affinity for the undead and making their vehicles zombie-proof. Flesh eaters are alive and licking in pop culture as witnessed by city-wide zombie walks, AMC’s acclaimed TV series The Walking Dead, and the movie World War Z, which has grossed over $500M worldwide.
