Cummins-Powered Jeep JK Monster


MBRP Performance Exhaust (and its Jeep-specific subsidiary Off Camber Fabrications) manufactures high-end exhaust systems as well as a variety of different Jeep parts including roof racks, light mounts, cargo baskets, armor, and bumpers.  Somebody at the company came up with the fantastic idea of shoehorning a 12-valve Cummins Turbodiesel into a stretched Jeep Wrangler JK pickup conversion and fully outfitting it with offroad equipment.  Including portal axles and 44-inch Pitbull Rocker tires.

The end result was a real monster.  The extra-long wheelbase and the tremendous weight of the Cummins motor over the front axle allow this Jeep to climb incredible obstacles with unreal ease.

You can read about the buildup here on PavementSucks.com but the video of them at Moab's Easter Jeep Safari can't be missed!

  3. Sorry to hear about the Jeep problems! Also, how is the horse-powered homesteading going? I assumed you had gotten a horse-powered square baler.
