At Easter Jeep Safari this year, we came across a unique-looking Jeep truck. We stopped to briefly talk to the owner, Greg Henderson, who explained to us this was “FrankenBrute,” and it was a vehicle he built at his home in Michigan. Henderson previously worked at AEV for a number of years and loves to tinker with vehicles in general. But this unique Jeep is much more than just a cool project to him and his family.

Sadly, Greg’s son Liam was the victim of Shaken Baby Syndrome, and the vehicle was built to help raise funds to pay for his son’s medical costs while also raising awareness for Shaken Baby Syndrome. Though it is difficult to put a figure on the specific number of cases each year, Greg told us this happens to roughly 50,000 kids a year in the U.S.

For quite a few years now, Jeep and Mopar have partnered to create some unique concept vehicles for the Easter Jeep Safari. The vehicles are completed back in Detroit, and then they’re brought out to Moab, Utah, and shown to the off-road media. The vehicles are something we all get to drool over (as the media, I guess we get to drool first), and we in turn then post stories so our readers can drool over them.
