Marshawn Lynch is Selling Two Beast Mode Jeeps for Charity
He might not be headed to the Super Bowl this year, but Seattle Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch is still keeping “beast mode” fully-engaged. On Tuesday, the San Francisco Chronicle revealed the NFL star will open a Beast Mode clothing brand store in his hometown of Oakland, California, with a portion of early proceeds donated to charity. Now, Lynch has also kicked off an eBay charity auction that will see him sell off a pair of custom Beast Mode Jeep Wranglers, as well as two dozen Power Wheels mini Jeeps and other signed memorabilia. Lynch’s charity of choice is the Fam 1st Family Foundation, which he started with cousin Josh Johnson of the Buffalo Bills, to support and empower at-risk youth in the Bay Area.

You certainly won’t see many Jeeps that look quite like this duo. Lynch’s Beast Mode Jeep Wranglers were built by McLoughlin Chrysler Jeep and boast a highly aggressive stance, courtesy of a four-inch suspension lift, 37-inch off-road tires, new grille and Warn winch, green “halo” headlights, and a muscular new hood. Inside, the Beast Mode Jeeps also sport custom leather seats, which feature Lynch’s signature embroidered into the back. The standard 3.6-liter V6 engine still remains under both 4x4s, now paired with a Magnaflow exhaust and Mopar cold-air intake.
While smaller in size, the Beast Mode Power Wheels still pack a lot of presence as well. Customized by Recon Northwest, these Jeep Hurricane ride-on toys wear plenty of Beast Mode logos, come dressed with eye-catching green accents, sport a Bluetooth wireless speaker and speakerphone, and have been signed by Marshawn Lynch himself.

The charity auction includes ten different types of items altogether, which include a signed and game-worn jersey (11/9/14, against the New York Giants), a signed pair of Lynch’s Nike Vapor cleats, and even a signed box of Skittles.
“When I created the Fam 1st Family Foundation, my mission was to empower and educate underprivileged youth,” said Marshawn Lynch in a statement. “Through this charity auction with eBay, proceeds raised will provide opportunities for these kids in need.”
The auction kicked off on February 2 and will conclude on February 12.
