Heavily modified suspensions and body armor are commonplace on the trail, but rarely do we see anyone swap out their 4.0L engine. “Sure I would love a V-8,” Denis comments, “but the 4.0L hasn’t given me any reason to get rid of it.” The engine is fired by dual Optima batteries wired with a 12 Volt Guy wiring kit and stuffed in a Mean Green battery tray. Behind the six-cylinder the factory 32RH three-speed automatic was mated to an NP241 Rock-Trac transfer case out of a TJ Rubicon. The Rubicon also donated its axles and Denis ran them for years, but they were deemed insufficient for the 40-inch tires that Denis is now running.
