This Hellcat Jeep Wrangler Is One Scary SUV

Tuning

Dakota Customs will sell you a Jeep Wrangler with a V8 707 hp Hellcat engine from a Dodge Charger.

Is this the scariest SUV in existence? The hair-raising V8 Hellcat engine that powers the likes of the Dodge Charger and Challenger muscle cars is one of the best-sounding engines money can buy – there’s a reason why it reduced Richard Hammond to an excitable child every time he floored it in The Grand Tour and was treated to its sublime supercharged whine. Likewise, the Jeep Wrangler is one of the most capable off-roaders money can buy. So why not have both?

That’s exactly what this auto shop is offering. And the resulting Frankenstein creation is one scary SUV. Dakota Customs is offering to do the insane conversion, fitting your Wrangler with the same 6.2-liter, 707-hp HEMI V8 engine from the aforementioned muscle cars, no detuning necessary.

You’ll also get some extras as part of the package, including a Borla exhaust system, a Walbro fuel pump and Dakota Customs’ own intake and intercooler. Unsurprisingly, the cost to fit these upgrades doesn’t come cheap, and will set you back $56,000. And no, that doesn’t include the cost of a Wrangler. You can also add a rear tray to match the Trailcat concept that never happened for an extra $5,895. Since the Trailcat most likely isn’t going to go into production, this is probably the closest you’re going to get right now. It’s worth noting that Daktoa Customs advises that the mod is only intended to be used off-road, as it may no longer pass state emissions tests. That’s a bit of an understatement.
