Michael is a lucky man to own that beast! Could you imagine that at a stoplight against a kid revving up his late model Mustang? Ha Ha...epic!

I'd bet it was a 20K conversion...so you could maybe put one together for yourself for around $45K! Hmmm....cant'cha get a 2011 SRT8 Challenger for that kinda money? 12.4 sec. of bad to the bone MOPAR beast muscle.

A bit over kill, I think a simple strong V8 would be better. Give the wrangler guys more power to roll the big tires with better gears. Although it is cool.

There is a company doing the conversions in the 2011 GCs already and badging them SRT8s while Chrysler still contemplates doing it. New GCs are 30K and 25K for conversion. I have 101K on my motor so it is almost time for a swap!!
