Badass Supercharged Rubicon Rolls on 40s: Marketplace Finds

Jeep Wrangler packed to the gills with performance gear is a total boon for any frugal off-road lover.

We see our fair share of cool Jeep builds around these parts. Mostly because our members have some of the most amazing rides anywhere. But that also means that when they get bored with them or want something new, these Jeeps often wind up for sale in the JK Forum Marketplace. There you’ll find tons of killer builds selling for way less than their original build cost. Case in point? This awesome ’08 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon.

The parts list on this bad boy reads like a short novel. But the proverbial cherry on top is a Ripp supercharger. The blower helps feed plenty of power to a highly modified drivetrain and chassis. Dana/Spicer UD 60 axles reside front and back, packing 5.38 gears. The Jeep also features Eaton e-lockers and Carolina Driveline 1350 driveshafts for extra strength.

Suspension wise, this Jeep has Rock Krawler 3.5″ coils at all four corners, along with control arms, track bars, and sway bars from the same manufacturer. It all rolls on KMC Machete beadlock wheels wrapped in seriously meaty 40×13.50×17 Procomp MT2 tires.

And of course, you don’t do all of that without adding some body mods. Thus, this badass Jeep build packs a ton of visual/usable upgrades like Poison Spyder bumpers, various armor, and rock sliders. It all adds up to one heck of a thorough build. And with a price just a tad over $30k, it’s a heck of a lot of Jeep for the dough.
