Default Tonka Toy's 08' 4 door JK build

I just had a long weekend to pick up my new to me JK

Jumped on a plane to Arkansas Friday morning to pick up the jeep and made the 925 mile drive home.

It's an 08' with a 5.7 hemi, auto, and atlas

It's going to get the 35" MTR's off the yota and a little axle work till I acquire the parts I want to build it and turn it in to what I want

The plan is to eventually be on tons or Hi9's and 37-40" tires.

Nope it's just above the cold full line and the motor was cold when I picked it up.

I believe when they designed the JK they had Hemi swaps in mind.

Looks like an awesome start. Kind of weird seeing a basically stock JK with a Hemi and an atlas lol.

Should have been a factory option from the start IMO

To be honest I don't know and forgot to ask. I have all the paper work on the drive line I still need to go thru. The guy that put it together builds eiring harness to do motor swaps spacificly the 2 hemi motors. He bought this jeep new after he put 18k on it pulled the driveline and dropped the crate motor crate trans and atlas in.

This is who did the swap
