Amber Rose Gives Her Jeep Wrangler a Makeover

Amber Rose Takes Her Wrangler from Pink to Army Green

Do you know who Amber Rose is? According to her Instagram page, she’s a “Talk Show Host, Feminist & Author.” Apparently she used to be married to rapper Wiz Khalifa, too. And she’s also a Jeep Wrangler owner.

Like most Wrangler owners, Amber has personalized her vehicle. No, she didn’t have it painted the same shade of blonde as her hair. After buying her JKU, she had it recovered in bubblegum pink (unlike most Wrangler owners). As you can see in the photo above, she fully commits, from the Jeep’s body-color hard top to the spokes of its aftermarket wheels.

After a while, Amber eventually decided to change things up, though. She kept her Jeep pink, but switched from bubblegum to a chrome finish (as you can see just above). Her custom shop of choice, Roadstarr Motorsports, added a variety of parts, including a new front bumper and bull bar, wide black and pink fender flares, and a roof-mounted light bar.

Apparently Rose has decided Pink just isn’t working for her anymore. So now the Wrangler Unlimited wears a completely different exterior color. For us, it’s one that’s just as eye-catching as metallic pink: Army Green. That’s also on the lips and spoke frames of the wheels.

Given how popular wraps are these days and Rose’s willingness to use them, we can’t imagine her Wrangler will look this way for long. Who knows, maybe she’ll trade it in on a 2018 Wrangler… and immediately have it customized.

Derek Shiekhi's father raised him on cars. As a boy, Derek accompanied his dad as he bought classics such as post-WWII GM trucks and early Ford Mustang convertibles.

After loving cars for years and getting a bachelor's degree in Business Management, Derek decided to get an associate degree in journalism. His networking put him in contact with the editor of the Austin-American Statesman newspaper, who hired him to write freelance about automotive culture and events in Austin, Texas in 2013. One particular story led to him getting a certificate for learning the foundations of road racing.

While watching TV with his parents one fateful evening, he saw a commercial that changed his life. In it, Jeep touted the Wrangler as the Texas Auto Writers Association's "SUV of Texas." Derek knew he had to join the organization if he was going to advance as an automotive writer. He joined the Texas Auto Writers Association (TAWA) in 2014 and was fortunate to meet several nice people who connected him to the representatives of several automakers and the people who could give him access to press vehicles (the first one he ever got the keys to was a Lexus LX 570). He's now a regular at TAWA's two main events: the Texas Auto Roundup in the spring and the Texas Truck Rodeo in the fall.

Over the past several years, Derek has learned how to drive off-road in various four-wheel-drive SUVs (he even camped out for two nights in a Land Rover), and driven around various tracks in hot hatches, muscle cars, and exotics. Several of his pieces, including his article about the 2015 Ford F-150 being crowned TAWA's 2014 "Truck of Texas" and his review of the Alfa Romeo 4C Spider, have won awards in TAWA's annual Excellence in Craft Competition. Last year, his JK Forum profile of Wagonmaster, a business that restores Jeep Wagoneers, won prizes in TAWA’s signature writing contest and its pickup- and SUV-focused Texas Truck Invitational.

In addition to writing for a variety of Internet Brands sites, including JK Forum, H-D Forums, The Mustang Source, Mustang Forums, LS1Tech, HondaTech, Jaguar Forums, YotaTech, and Ford Truck Enthusiasts. Derek also started There Will Be Cars on Instagram, Facebook, and YouTube.
