Dennis Collins Hellwagon: Hellcat Wagoneer

Post by Mustang Shooter » Fri Mar 08, 2019 8:17 pm

Hey gang!
I came across this video this evening. Looks like Dennis Collins from Collins Brothers Jeep is going to install a Hellcat engine into a Grand Wagoneer.
I've never tried to link a YouTube video, I hope it works.
Later!
Dan

Ha! I just saw that and was going to post it. ImageImageImage
That is one amazingly clean grand Waggy. Wow.


Also saw this but it doesn’t do much more than tease...

Interesting reading all the comments about if it was so rare why use it?
Personally I would rather have one in Black Cherry.

Can't stand that guy. But I don't really get the hate for everyone crying about destroying a classic, adding a Hellcat engine isn't going to devalue it, not to mention i remember seeing so many in that color growing up I doubt his claims of it being "super rare"...

And the site he refers to has some crazy prices on Grand Wagoneer's too. I have to admit I do like the red color.

I’m just envious that my Waggy isn’t 1/10th as nice. And the fact they will have all that power, reliably, and probably still get better mpgs than me doesn’t help.

It will be interesting to see what he does with the rest of the drive train.

Entertaining... but what is that attitude on #51 to abuse a new engine after startup... is that 4 to 5krpm after a 30 sec cold start?
