Well I got the idea to throw a hemi, dual exhaust, and a custom roll cage on a rubicon. Heres what I've got so far...

I plan in lowering it, adding slicks, slimming down the interior and possibly adding some fenders.

Please continue.


Right now I'm just waiting to get four 1/25 drag slicks, and another jeep kit. Right now I'm using a completed kit to mock everything up on.

Curious to see how this one turns out, I will be following along. Looks like a neat idea.

Got some progress in lowering it. Hoping to get some slicks on it soon. I also cut some excess junk out. I removed the fuel tank from underneath and will pop it in the back seat like a fuel cell.

Cut out a patch with sheet styrene for where the fuel tank was

Plugged the holes in the body where the daimond plate trim would go.

Cut the hood open too

Managed to fit the slicks on the original wheels to avoid the headache of attaching different wheels. I also got the stance just about right, and the exhaust still fits under the axles. Now to find a radiator and put in the firewall and engine20131110_174913_zps1637b7ae.jpg

Exactly why I did it! I wanted to build another one that I went all out on. I figured anyone can lift it and put bigger wheels, but how many people would put a hemi and drag slicks :P

Been busy! Added the blower from a camara kit. I used the original belt setup for the 383 from the dart kit. I then took the belt setup for the blower, and cut it to blend into the 383. Can't even tell.

I got the lines from an verizon phone charger that dodmt work. Had some white green red and black lines in it. You could use em for wires or hoses as they vary in size.

Hood fits now that have of its gone :D

II forgot to mention I transplated the dart gts firewall into the jeep. I also used a parts box starter as a brake booster :P

Cut the fuel tank off the bottom and transplanted it up to after covering the whole with styrene.

Cut out the huge center console hump and covered it with styrene.
