One of our readers gave us a tip about a cool "Mopar Underground" vehicle that recently underwent some testing outside Moab, Utah. The Jeep Wrangler "Lower Forty" was built by Burnsville Offroad. Here's what they had to say about it:

Burnsville Offroad was to install a 5.7 hemi with a 6 speed manual transmission into their latest custom 2 door JK. Chryslers Mopar Underground division took a 2 door JK and with a lot of rework on the sheet metal and with a custom hood and flares installed 40 inch Mickey Thompson Claws on this JK with no suspension lift. At the same time the windshield frame was raked and chopped along with a custom rollcage to further lower the stance. Itís a cool looking jeep that will also be very capable on the trail once we are done with it. We will be installing a reworked 5.7 hemi that has hi flow heads and a larger camshaft. The install will also include Dynatrac prepped J8 axles with ARB airlockers and 5.38 gears. The 1350 driveshafts were built by Tom Woods. We installed the larger J8 brakes to help stop those 40 inch tires.

Check out their site (link above) as well as FourWheeler.com for some cool photos.

It's about time that a Jeep has enough clearance for bigger tires without the customer having to cut..and chop..and lift..and beef up the drive train.

I hope something like this goes into production. The initial cost may be high, but modifying an existing model on our own to that level would be quite expensive anyway.

According to FOUR WHEELER, Burnsville Offroad is probably going to start offering "replicas" of the Lower Forty JK for sale.

Even in stock form though, the new JKs can fit large tires without much work. A basic 4" lift and the tiniest amount of trimming will fit 37" tires, and in Rubicon form the factory axles can handle that size tire too.
