Default 2013 JKU Hemi Build

The Jeep makeover is finally done. We completely gutted my Wrangler and started from scratch. The overall build was mostly completed in 5 weeks, with another few weeks fine tuning everything.
A special shout out to Chris Vogel at Vogel Auto and Diesel in Castle Rock for his help, expertise and friendship.
Waiting for my rear corner armor, and some skid plate fabrication. A few more minor items and I'll be mostly finished.
We added a 6.4L Hemi, Borla stainless exhaust, Dana 60's with 4.88's, EVO Double D Pro coil overs, PSC hydro assist steering, Yeti tie rod and drag link, JCR Off-road bumpers and tire carrier, Metalcloak Overline and Overland fenders, Ace Engineering wheel well liners, S-Pod, Spyderlock wheels, 40" Toyo tires, Adams driveshafts, ARB compressor, Rubicon transfer case, JW Speaker LED's, Rockhard sportcage, and countless other small stuff.
Andrew and Matt at Elevated Audio in Denver installed a ridiculous stereo system (112 db so the neighbors know I'm home) and a 4 camera DVR system with wheel well cameras.

Lots of trails here in Colorado. I wheeled fairly often before the build, and will hopefully get to do more. I drive it daily, but it was made for rocks.

Thumbs up Bro...

This build is gorgeous. If you don't mind me asking how much did it cost you to swap the motor? How does it run???

The complete engine package from Dakota Customs is around $26k, plus install time. It runs like a beast. Ridiculous amount of power.

The only problem I have found is trying to drive it like a normal person. It's just too tempting to drive it like an escaped convict.
