CORONA, Calif., Feb. 8, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The world famous West Coast Customs (WCC), renown vehicle customizers and producers of the hit vehicle-build reality TV show Inside West Coast Customs, is featuring a blast from the past when Shaquille O'Neal asks Ryan to build him a new Jeep. After many years and countless cars, Shaq's back and has asked the crew at WCC to build him the ultimate Jeep. Its time for old friends to reunite and for the crew at WCC to transform an ordinary vehicle into another work of art.

"West Coast Customs has built several cars for Shaq," said Ryan Friedlinghaus, CEO and founder of West Coast Customs. "Shaq was one of my first celebrity clients and because of his size, building vehicles to fit a giant is always a challenge."

The Shaq's Back episode will be the first episode of the 2013 season on Velocity Channel. Ryan and the WCC crew will take a four-door Jeep and transform it into a two-door conversion which will be "just right" for the NBA legend. The vehicle's exterior will feature BASF matte black paint, Oracle accent lighting, Rigid Industries off-road led lights, Magnaflow Exhaust, Poison Spyder brawler bumpers and rockers, Smittybilt winch, and FUEL wheels. The interior of the Jeep showcases custom Roadwire leather seats with signature embroidery, and a booming Pioneer audio system and head unit.

Check out Inside West Coast Customs, Sunday at 9:00 pm EST on Velocity.
