Monster Machines: GenRight Terremoto
The guys over at GenRight have built one incredible, capable JK that outshines many others. It is the most extreme JK to have been featured here so far. Let’s take a look at the GenRight Off-Road Terremoto. (All images thanks to GenRight)
It was built to be the “most over-the-top” Jeep JK Wrangler the world has ever seen. Honestly, it probably is. To start, the only things still factory are the frame and the body tub. Everything else on the Terremoto has been displaced by something better, lighter, stronger, or some combination of those.
The first thing to go was the engine. In its place is the ever-popular General Motors LS3 V8 that was hand-built with West Coast Stage 3 L92 heads, RC injectors, custom headers, FAST intake system, and a Griffin radiator. The transmission is the stout 4L80 built by TCI, and features an Art Carr shifter. The transfer case is the legendary Atlas 2 that sends power to the Currie Enterprises Rock Jock 60 front and rear axles. Those axles contain Super 60 pinions to handle the abuse expected out of this JK, and have been equipped with Currie Johnny Joints for the arm links. The transfer case and transmission are protected by a GenRight Flat Belly skid plate.
Keeping the axles in check is a set of King Shocks IPB 2.5-inch-in-diameter shocks with reservoirs mounted in an outboard configuration. King Shocks also takes care of stopping the axle from bottoming out with their 2-inch Air Bumps. The control arms are a set of Summit 7075s and their frame mounts are all inside the chassis rather than the outside edge, and have been double-triangulated in the rear with a three-link with panhard bar up front. The 17-inch Raceline Forged Beadlock Wheels have 40-inch Goodyear Wrangler MTRs and are stopped by Brake Man Wave rotors with no power assist.
You sit inside the Terremoto with comfort thanks to the PRP Rally Venture heated seats with ostrich skin and five-point harnesses. The Momo Steering Wheel also has a pair of paddle shifters, in case you don’t want to shift with that Art Carr, but you can shift with either, too. To keep tabs on the engine, a Racepack Digital Display dash gives you the vitals while the Sony head unit keeps you entertained, blasting out music with Focal speakers and a 10-inch subwoofer. When you’re on the trail, the Rugged Race Radios Intercom helps you keep on target with your navigator who’s looking at the Lowrance eight-inch GPS display, or you can both listen to music with the headsets. All of these are mounted on the GenRight Aluminum dash. Keeping you safe is a GenRight JK Roll Cage made of .120-wall, two-inch diameter tubing.
The outside is just as amazing as the inside with GenRight parts all around.
It features the new JK Carbon Fiber front and …
… rear fenders, aluminum GenRight front stinger bumper and aluminum rear bumper, aluminum boatside rocker guards, JK Door Corner Guards, aluminum half-doors with ostrich skin interior, and a pair of JW Speaker headlights. To keep you out of trouble, a Warn 9.5 CTI winch is located in the bumper to pull you to safety.
Outside of a race-spec JK that would tackle the King of the Hammers, we don’t think you could find a more capable JK.
