WranglerMopar Unveils 5 Drool-Worthy Jeep Projects
Posted by mike on 2008/4/9 16:04:53 (4343) reads

blogs.fourwheeler.com unveiled six new vehicles - 4 Wranglers, a Liberty, and a Dodge Ram - all highly customized, all really flippin' cool.

The blog calls them the "Psychotic Six", and all will be featured in the August issue of Four Wheeler magazine.

Here's a quick rundown of the vehicles:

Hemi JK: This black JK is called the "JKL" and it has a 110-inch wheelbase, 37-inch tires, a 4-inch suspension lift and a lusty 6.1L Hemi V-8.

Dana 60 JK: Called the "All-access," this JK premiered at the '07 SEMA show, but it's being trotted out again to highlight a new mod; the upcoming "MILITARY-SPEC" and "performance-upgraded" Dana 60 rear axle that will be available through Mopar Performance.

Diesel TJ: This rig is an engineering mule that has been fitted with the 2.8L 4-cylinder DIESEL engine. It was built to explore the feasibility of integrating a diesel engine kit in the TJ vehicle system.

Cummins Power Wagon: Yep, they FINALLY built one! It's sporting the 6.7L Cummins diesel along with 40-inch tires, a KORE suspension and all the usual smokin' PW goodies.

J8 Sarge: Oh man, where to start? This ULTRA-COOL non-combat military support vehicle has a 116-inch sheelbase; Dana 60 rear axle set on leaf springs; a 2.8L turbodiesel engine; hood-mounted air intake snorkel; and much more.

Liberator II: A Liberty like no other, this KK has a rear ARB Air Locker, rock rails, brushguard, cat-back exhaust, 33-inch tires and a 2-inch lift.

Check out the blog for more details and photos.

Would definately consider trading in my jk for a HEMI JK, It's not a daily driver for me, more of my weekend toy.

I drove a retal Hemi Aspen to Vegas, and mpg wasnt so bad, I liked the thing, drove nice.

The Dana 60 would be a great fit with a new diesel or the 4.7L-V8 in the JK & JT.

Side note: Jeep has several times commented that the 4.7L is a "difficult fit" under the JK hood. Then how does Burnsville Off-Road seem to have no problem bolting one in? They've also said the V "angle" of the 5.7L Hemis is actually an easier fit in the JK engine bay. FINE! Then put the new MY09 5.7L-380HP MDS Hemi in it instead --Break my heart!

The "Liberator" would be great with a 4.0L-V6 --which it may finally inherit when/if the Nitro is scrapped! (Until then it's seems to be strictly reserved for Dodge --image thing, dontcha know... )

With fuel prices & CAFE standards poised to skyrocket, I anticipate some packages to boost/sustain sales of the Compass & Patriot, because Chrysler needs those extra MPGs to offset all the Hemis they sell! Yes we've been told the interiors will get a refresh very soon, but I'm how about an option for these 4X4s with the Caliber's 280HP SRT4 engine? The Compass' image could instantly vault from Dumb, to Yumm! Well, maybe...

Very nice projects. I would like to see some of these ideas drop into the production lineup. The Liberator II would make for a nice Renegade trim package.

The J8 is actually a production vehicle... just not for US consumers (US govt and foreign consumers only).
