“It was a close contest, coming down to the final vote,” said Menounos. “Alex definitely brought his A-game with West Coast Customs, as did Andrew and Chris with AutoCraft NYC, but I knew from the beginning that David Tonapetyan and DCD Customs had what it takes to help me build my perfect Jeep Wrangler. I’m beyond excited to be the first ever Wrangler Golden Grille winner!”

“Maria had a vision from the very beginning and DCD Customs was honored to help her realize it,” said David Tonapetyan, CEO of DCD Customs. “From the retro teal color custom paint with the custom interior to match with white accents, down to the 40-inch tires and silver winch, this Jeep Wrangler is one-of-a-kind, just like Maria.”

In the six-episode web series, media personality Maria Menounos, baseball legend and MLB analyst Alex Rodriguez, entrepreneur and the restaurant media platform The Infatuation, with co-founders Andrew Steinthal and Chris Stang, competed with the assistance of professional customizers utilizing  Jeep Performance Parts to craft an all-new 2018 Jeep Wrangler that showcases their respective styles, passions and personalities.
