Full Metal Jacket

2014 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited

What happens when you strip a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited down to the bare essentials and start all over?

That depends on your end goal. In this case we intended to create not only the baddest looking Jeep but we also intended to build the most capable off-road 4WD Jeep no matter what the terrain. This included the most complete setup for body protection, off road durability, suspension lift system, and performance.

Let’s start with what we removed. Out goes the interior carpet… no need to worry about getting that covered in dirt and mud when you’re on off road. Off came the exterior body panels… they aren’t needed either with the new Smittybilt Body Armor. Next came the factory suspension, axles, drive shafts, even including the factory mounting points. Oh yeah, we also scrapped the exhaust, seats, and anything else that would get in the way.

Underneath the Jeep we started with 1 ton axles. Curry Rock Jocks definitely did the trick. These blast proof axles will give you the confidence needed to take on any path without worry of broken outers or axle shafts. Tie these to the frame with a killer long arm suspension and 14” coil over shocks that have a fully adjustable ride height (approx 9” to infiniti) and you can maneuver over any rocks, valleys, washouts or even over that new Porsche 991 Turbo Cab that is always parking in your spot at work! With 40” tires and a 5.13 gear ratio you can get that low end traction to make a smooth launch right over that Porsche.

The exterior is also up fitted with the toughest body armor, Starwood Motor's signature exterior finish, and front and rear bumpers to keep this thing dent and scratch free when running over Zombie’s during the apocalypse. We also installed super bright LED flood lights from Rigid Industries and LED head lights from JW Speaker turning night into day. Finally, the Warn winch will pull any lesser vehicles from their mud holes and allow a tinge of pride to remain due to the sheer size of the Full Metal Jacket conversion Jeep.

Inside is a completely textured interior floor. Full custom race seats wrapped in the best leather hides. Full navigation, sound system with custom subwoofer bring the sound. A back up camera ensures that you can avoid any other vehicles that you don’t want to annihilate. You also have your choice of Safari style half doors or the factory full frame doors to suite your mood.

The wheels are the brand new design from XD, model 813 called the Battalion. You gotta hand it to the XD guys on this wheel, it is powerful. Mounted on the 18” wheels are 35” Nitto Trail Grappler tires.
