Nitro Gear 2007 Jeep Wrangler JKU

LS Swapped 2007 Jeep Wrangler JK Unlimited




In June of 2016 we decided to build it for the 50th SEMA show in November 2016. After the rebuild there are basically no stock parts left on this JKU. The jeep has been featured in countless publications and has been heavy on the show circuit over the last 3 years. It has been well maintained before and after every wheeling trip. Since the body off rebuild the jeep has not been in the mud, only in the rocks. This rig is a neck breaker in its signature Tiffany Blue Kevlar paint job. This rig was rebuilt at 160k and is currently sitting at about 170k. This means this jeep basically only has 10k on it. Being that the jeep spent its entire life in the Northwest Florida area there isn’t a spec of rust on the body or frame. This year we had the jeep custom dyno tuned by HPtuners and we speculate that we’re at about 500HP at the crank and about 400HP at the rear wheels. This jeep is a proven daily driver and extremely capable off roader as well, easily tackling many of the hardest trails in the nation. We built it to be beautiful and capable, keeping that goal in mind we kept high clearance axles, low center of gravity and used aluminum wherever we could to save weight.



Drivetrain:

This Jeep has a whole new drivetrain. In 2017 we replaced the tired 3.8 motor with an all-aluminum 6.2 L99 and 6L80e. The motor was fully rebuilt with a mild comp cam, longer push rods and different valve springs. The swap was done by RPM extreme in Birmingham Alabama, they specialize in LS swapped wranglers and offer the best kit on the market including a cruise control switch that doubles as a tap shifter.
