Guinea pig is one of my all time favorite builds. Mine is emulating it in many ways(not to mention being red).

Great builds and attention to detail.

I'm trying to hang on to them, one of the best tires ever!! I run BFG Krawlers also, so my MTRs will last.

392 HEMI with a magnuson supercharger

This is a Jeep we have been working on, it is a 2013 JKUR. We had the trans build to handle 700HP, i do not think the engine will put out that much but it will put out more than the 3.6L the trans was hooked to (A580) before. We are working with Magnuson on a HEMI kit for the JK Hemi Jeeps. (5.7L,6.4L)

This Jeep has Dana 60 axles front and rear, coil over shocks, TeraFlex long arm and a lot more.

We are trying to finish this Jeep so we can get on another one just like it.

Todd, Nice rigs.


A bit of a derail: That new computer you built for Rex works great. Major difference in shifting and power. I was able to climb smoother, as well as do a few high power obstacles that I couldn't do before. The computer needs more time to learn, but so far much improved. Thanks.

I love Wheeling, it frees the mind

392 HEMI with a magnuson supercharger

We got the 2013 JKUR done, This Jeep we had the A580 Trans build to handle the extra power the 392 and the supercharger is putting out. We also put Dana 60 axles and kept the Rock Trac t case.

We also build a way bigger radiator for this Jeep, 3 inch thick.

Also we are running two odyssey batteries, using our battery box.

I know this is of no concern to some but is there a significant difference in fuel economy when switching to a Hemi vs the V6. I know there is the weight increase, power output difference, and it is expected to be less that the V6 but how much less? I am weighing option on what I would like to go with once I get to this point on my build.

We have seen better gas mileage with the Hemi and even better with the LS 5.3L.
The 5.7L VVT Truck Hemi is about 2 miles to the gallon better than the 3.8L. With our LS 5.3L it is about 3 miles better on average.

SMOG Legal HEMI

We have found the problems with the TJ swap and now we are back in business and now we are able to get the 1997-2006 Jeep threw emissions, with the new emissions law. (ALL MONITORS MUST RUN COMPLETE)

whomever put that Jeep emblem on the grill should be fired forthwith ! One of my pet peeves ! every auto body shop in my area will line up the "p" with the bottom so it doesn't line up properly !
