2012 Jeep Wrangler: Should We Get a Hemi?

February 14, 2012

This rolled into the swank Mr. C Hotel parking lot yesterday while I was awaiting a Fisker event to start. I was told it was Philadelphia Eagle DeSean Jackson's, and given the brief glimpse I got of the driver, I'd buy that.

As you can see, it's a Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon that's been modified. Check out the badge pictured after the jump, however. That thing got a Hemi?

In this world of morons putting AMG badges on their C240's, you'd be inclined to say it's just a stick-on. However, this thing had a warble to it completely not in keeping with either the current or old V6s. We couldn't exactly look inside, but looking around, there was definitely something different going on.

So I'm going to give Mr. Jackson credit and say that yep, it's got a Hemi. And it is possible.

I know the Pentastar is new-and-improved and all, but should we do it too?
