    Default Jeep 392!

    Iíve always thought Jeeps were cool, and even cooler with a 350 swap.

    Almost 20 years ago my brother and I swapped a 302HO from an Ď87 Mustang into a Jeep. We broke the bell housing and rear diff, but had a screaming ride for a couple weeks.

    Since then Iíve noticed the new models, like the 2L with etorque - but would never own one. Probably never even be serious enough to sit in one.

    But now...

    https://www.autoblog.com/2020/07/11/...gler-392-hemi/

    That - THAT - would get me to a Jeep dealer.

    Only thing I could see being shitty is for Canadian sales SRT models only see 3/60 warranty for drivetrain. Itís really frustrating.

    However, a 470hp gladiator that could tow 8500 would be a contender. I just donít want to pay 75k for it.

    Off topic sort of - Iíd LOVE a new gen RAM with the 392 6.4L 470hp (485 in challenger) engine.

    The Gladiator already gets up past $70g without a V8. They'll probably tack on another $20g for the V8.

    Gladiator Hellcat will be awesome and expensive. It's not going to be a performance bargain by any stretch.

    Thats crazy! Same price as a F150 Limited, hell even get into a F350 Lariat probably. Isn't the Durango getting a Hellcat version next year?

    That would be like 120k.

    I’m trying to determine the NA 6.4L gladiator pricing lol. I can actually see it around 90 now. Man alive that’s nuts.

    It won’t be better than any top trim 1/2 ton. So would people pay that much?

    I can’t justify the price for a new wrangler as is.
    Tack on a V8 and the prices will be insane.

    Thanks soccer moms.....

    It’s a jeep with a V8. It doesn’t have to compete with anything.

    This is Jeeps mic drop to kill the bronco lol

    I'm sure a Bronco Raptor with 3.5L ecoboost eventually will show up once the craze calms.

    Imagine how much more quickly the windshields will crack with that extra powa.

    I guess the 392 is now over 10yrs old? Makes sense they keep the wrangler on theme

    In 2010 you could buy a 2dr 6sp, loaded rubicon for $34k... what a time to be alive. It’s almost like the “best resale” is a Ponzi scheme
