The Jeep Wrangler has really caught fire in the tuning scene, so Kahn Design has taken advantage of the unique platform to construct a package that appeals to most owners. For this particular Jeep Wrangler Unlimited aka Sahara, the SUV has been murdered out with black covering almost every aftermarket part. On the exterior we see smoked headlights and taillights, dark tinted windows, rocker panels and a new set of 20-inch gunmetal wheels wrapped in high performance tires.
Hennessey Performance sent us a surprise for the holidays with this 2013 Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT8 package. Under the hood is a Hennessey HPE800 Twin Turbo engine kit that was hooked up to the bored out factory 6.4-liter HEMI V8. Displacement is now at 7.0-liters, allowing the large twin turbochargers to put down 805 horsepower and 823 lb-ft of torque. A huge increase from the stock 465 hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. At the track, the modified Jeep Grand Cherokee now sprints from 0 to 60 mph in just 3.1 seconds, which is damn good for a full-size SUV.
We’re starting to see more and more Jeep Wrangler‘s receive tuning kits from around the world. This time we have a new package from the notorious Project Kahn, who have prior experience hooking up sport utility vehicles. Modifications to this model include a new targa roof, new headlights, and side lighting. On the off-white exterior are contrasting 18 to 20-inch alloy wheels with a unique design that fits the Jeep Wrangler quite well. Inside the Jeep you will notice new red dials for the gauge cluster, along with red perforated leather covering the Wrangler seats for an extra custom feel.
Check out this new Jeep kit from Mopar that can turn any Wrangler into a pickup truck, and making it similar to the old CJ-8 Scrambler. They are calling this the JK-8 Independence kit, however we have to question Jeep as to why they are not offering something similar from the factory. Die-hard jeep owners will have to convert their original Wrangler’s by throwing away all the original body parts found on the rear end of the SUV. Then they can take this JK-8 kit and install it to make a truck. Doesn’t make a whole lot of sense because it will be a damn expensive tuning project, yet the results look good.
The UK tuners at Project Kahn have taken on the Jeep Wrangler for modifications. Typically, this tuning firm focuses on very high-end and expensive cars, but this time they worked on a Jeep Wrangler. Sure, it may not be a complete package, but the styling and looks have been improved drastically. The custom Jeep Wrangler received a new set of RS wheels from Kahn, with chunky tires measuring 275/55/20, and is ready to take on the mud, hills or other off-road conditions. Another notable mention is the fact they didn’t lift the Wrangler, which is probably a good thing since Jeep’s have a reputation of tipping over if the truck is too tall.
