Powering this Brute Double Cab, and we do mean powering, is a VVT 6.4L Hemi V-8 sourced from a ’12 Grand Cherokee SRT8. This engine makes 470hp and 465 lb-ft of torque. AEV manufactures all of the components to install the engine, including the radiator, wire harness, air conditioning lines, power steering lines, fuel lines, mounts, and battery tray. AEV also manufactures an injection-molded intake adapter to allow this engine to be properly packaged in the Wrangler. The stock 6.4L intake bends to the left; however the air filter is on the right side in a Wrangler. This custom adapter allows for full flow efficiency and gives the appearance of an OE installation. Bolted to the engine is a W5A580 five-speed automatic transmission and power is sent to the axles via a Rubicon-spec 241OR transfer case.
