Jeep Wrangler Trailcat


Every year around the Easter holiday, Jeep enthusiasts go to a remote part of Utah (USA) to do off road driving in some of the best terrain available on the Easter Jeep Safari.

This year is the Jeep’s 75th anniversary and the Easter safari’s 50Th.

To celebrate Jeep has decided to stuff a 707bhp engine into a Wrangler known as the Trailcat.

It features a 6.2-litre supercharged ‘Hellcat’ Hemi V8 engine, strapped to a six-speed manual transmission and stuffed into the Wrangler.

To make the engine fit, the wheelbase has been stretched by 12-inches. With the angle grinder already out, Jeep’s mechanics also decided to chop the windscreen down by two inches.

A powerful, supercharged V8 is nice but it’s not very useful on an off-roader if it can’t go off-road. So, to make the Wrangler good in the rough stuff, 17-inch beadlock wheels, 39.5-inch BF-Goodrich Krawler T/A KX tyres, Fox shocks and Dana 60 axle’s front and rear were added.

There are also custom details like a power-dome vented hood, satin black grille, LED headlamps, some more lamps, a set of rock rails and carbon fibre, and leather wrapped seats from a Dodge Viper.
