When I first heard that DC was going to build a 2WD Jeep JK Wrangler Unlimited, the first thought that came to my head was sacralige! But then, I got to start thinking about how much cheaper a 2WD model was versus say, a fully loaded Rubicon, and then I got to start thinking… what if you took the money you saved going this route and then turned around and used it to swap in a set of bigger badder axles front and rear, add an Atlas Transfer Case, coil overs and God only knows what else. Need I say, the more I thought about it, the more I started to see the 2WD models for what they really are… a great platform to start building a monster. And, as it turns out, that’s exactly what the guys over at Holy Moly Racing were thinking too and that’s the task that Off Road Evolution has been given.
So, exactly what kind of a monster are we talking about here? We’ll, the owners of Holy Moly Racing has given it the name “Jeepillac” and here’s a short list of all the parts that have been gathered so far (or are still in need of) that will ultimately find their way into this beast:

When I last saw this soon to be monster of a Jeep JK Wrangler a couple of nights ago, it was already completely stripped and torn down to the metal. Apparently, the need by the client is to get this this thing done as quickly as possible and from what I’m told, the expected build-up time will take approximately two months to complete.
