Your Jeep TJ, JK, or JL features a V6. These older power plants have definitely seen their better days and we will venture to say that most of these engines that are still on the road or trails are long overdue for a HEMI swap! There is nothing in this world like the raw torque and feel of a Gen3 HEMI under the hood of your Jeep.
By the time we throw some new larger, more capable wheels and tires and suspension lift kits, we find that the V6 starts to struggle with the added weight. The little V6 struggles are further increased when the owner of the Jeep uses the vehicle for a towing scenario. Perhaps a boat and trailer, Jet Skis, utility trailer, etc. the larger tires and towing are just bad news all around for the smaller engines.
The HEMI V8... This engine needs no introduction really. It powers some of the most insanely powerful Dodge and Chrysler production hotrods on the planet like the Dodge Challenger Hellcat, or the Dodge Charger SRT8. These V8 power plants are evening put in Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 models... So why not your Jeep ? Actually, we have been installing HEMIs in Jeeps for more than half a decade now, and we would love to install one in yours as well.
If you are considering a HEMI conversion for your Jeep, you have come to the right place. We have countless Jeeps running the street, offroad parks, and alike sporting a 6.4L HEMI and enjoying REAL V8 power and better gas mileage to boot. These HEMI engines don't have to work nearly as hard as a V6 to pull their weight around, not to mention towing a boat or utility trailer. We have a time tested and proven process for converting your Jeep over to this awesome platform and we would love to talk to you more about it.
The PROCESS... So how do we go about removing your V6 and replacing it with a monster HEMI V8? Very, very carefully. After disconnecting the old V6 power plant and other various hardware, we separate the body from the frame to make our custom modifications to your Jeep’s frame, so that we can properly mount your new HEMI motor. Once your V8 is mounted, it’s time to install the new wiring harness that will connect it to the new computer as well.
While the body and frame are apart we also address other aspects of the project, like special axles with custom gear ratios and lockers to enhance performance both on and off-road performance. Or high end suspension lift kits that raise ground clearance levels without sacrificing comfort. Or one of the many other various high end installation and fabrication services that we offer for your Jeep.
