No one Wrangler should have all this power

Up until today, we figured the only reason to consider paying a penny over the MSRP for a used Jeep Wrangler was if it was riding on 44-inch Pit Bull Rocker tires and named Rattletrap.

Turns out, we were wrong.

Now we know that it would also be worth it to shell out a little extra for a classic Wrangler — provided it's packing a Viper engine like this 2005 one-off has.

It’s tight, but the folks at Illinois-based The Last Detail were able cram an 8.3-liter V10 packing more than 500 ponies into the build. Mated to a 48RE automatic transmission and custom-built RockTrac transfer case, the Viper pairs quite nicely with the Wrangler’s redone suspension and modified brake system.

Riding on a quartet of 20-inch wheels wrapped in Mickey Thompson Baja ATZ tires, the Jeep is currently priced at $52,000, although Last Detail says it would take more $100,000 to replicate the “no-expense-spared build” today.

We’d still probably go with the Rattletrap over the Viper-infused model, but if you feel differently here’s the eBay listing.
