The JT is the sole reason why I havenít bought a JL yet. Sweet baby jesus make a V8 happen. [emoji120]

Very cool for sure but I'd be willing to bet that it reaches for the six figures. For that kind of money, I think I'd rather just get a Rubicon and see what EVO comes out with.

Depends on which Hemi...

LOL! As much as I'd like to think it'll come with a HEMI - a part of me has some doubts.

A rubicon with a factory V8 option would be awesome.

Again, I seriously doubt we'll see anything like that or at least, in the foreseeable future. Right now, there aren't even any solid dates on when we'll see the diesel. :rolleyes2:

I'd like to think a Jeep version of the Raptor (i.e. SRT) in a limited production run sometime in the future would get my attention...and wallet out.

Wouldnít that be great?! Only with a V8 though. Itís a shame Ford put a v6 in the raptor.

Like Sandstorm? :hmm: That'd be pretty badass. Probably never happen though.

One thing on our side is they put an SRT in most all of they're vehicles. Why not a JT.

To me it looks like someone photoshopped the front of sandstorm on a JT and started a rumor.

Was at the dealership yesterday and saw the price tag on the Grand Cherokee Hemi suped up version. Good god, it was 85k! It was badass though. Fingers crossed for that option in the future in a wrangler!

Have you drove the Raptor with the v6? I have one and also had the gen1 with the 6.2 v8 and that v6 has way more balls than that v8 had. The only downside I found with the v6 is that it sounds like a v6. That 6.2 with a corsa extreme exhaust sounded amazing!

That being said I have been thinking about reading the Raptor in for a Galdiator. So tough cause I really love the Raptor.

Let me know if you sell the raptor!! I may want it, if I can afford it.

Oh I bet! Haha. But stock for stock the Raptor is pretty good ride. Good hp and torque and 3.0s on all 4 corners.

Nope. I havenít driven a V6 Raptor. I believe you but Iíd still take a V8 over a V6 if it were an option.

I'm with you on the sound.... but I sure do wish the 2.7 turbo V6 in my ford was in my Jeep... I like that motor a lot!

It's got the same font on the hood sticker as the Sandstorm - that's what caught my eye. Wonder if those are the new EVO weld-on sliders on the last pic? :brows:

That looks great.

The sliders look good, but they don't look like EVO.

The outer profile does, but the angled bars in between don't.

Wow, tried to edit because only the top two pictures came through.
