Date 2008/4/9 16:04:53 | Topic: Wrangler
|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.
