Not because it makes sense, not because it would be practical, or even all that useful.

Just because. :love:

    The only problem I can see is all the lumberjack wannabees will be driving one too....but I'm not sure I care.

    The problem I see is that I won't be able to afford it.

    When a school teacher is the better-paid member of the family, you don't have unlimited cash.

    All very cool looking Jeep designs, I don't think there is room for one more thing under that Wildcat hood.

    I can think of a great many cheaper ways to commit suicide than dropping a drag strip engine into a short wheelbase, high C.G. vehicle. . .

    Didn't you read the article? They lengthened the wheelbase by 12"!!!:rotflmao:

    Like I said, the purpose of this vehicle is stupidity. Not regular stupidity, excessive stupidity!

    Well yeah, that was kinda my point. My 90" WB FJ-40 with the stock 135 HP I-6 was REALLY spooky at 60-65mph before I had the tie rods and drag link rebuilt, and it required a fair amount of attention even after. That so many guys saw any sense at all in dropping S.B.C.'s into them always caused me to raise an eyebrow.

    This seems akin to fitting a Pratt & Whitney R-2800 onto the Wright Flyer. . .

    Jeeps are for off road travel in tight and steep places. Low gears and low end torque are needed. You have it in 4L with 707hp......... you have a sit and spin! If it does get ggod traction, you better have bead locks!

    I never understood 4 door Jeeps. Now your wheelbase is nearing pickup length and your manuverability is gone......... might as well have a more versatile thuck.......

    Back in college, many years ago, I took a used mid to late 70 cj out for a test drive from a dealer...it had a Buick 460 (?), if I recall correctly. No doors on, no roof, June. Got far enough away from the dealership to toss it into 4wd. This was on US 1 in Oxford Valley PA, not backwood podunk. Red light, straight road...light wwent green, pedal to the floor, and I was blind...all four wheels were billowing out smoke.

    It was fun, but tossed it back to 2wd and trotted back to the dealership with a no sale response...that thing was likely to kill someone.

    People were totaling Hellcats as they drive them of the lot when they first hit. They'll have some idiot goose it in the dealership parking lot and climb up the wall of the dealership and wind up on the roof ... or through the wall.

    IMHO, that 285hp aluminum V-6 in the FC is plenty enough for any of them. None of them are really heavy....... or made to tow heavy

    The J12 has a real shot of becoming a production model. If it makes it, I'm buying one. The other jeeps and sweet but not daily drivers!

    IF I were to get a vintage 4x4, others would be closer to the top of the list...............

    That's the one I've been lusting after for decades - HS buddy had one. Although, I'm really leaning more towards a regular flat fender jeep these days.
