Update, unfortunately motor won't be arriving until mid June. I don't expect to post much new content until it arrives.

There isn't a build page yet, but I figured I'd post my plans.
Build starts with a Firecracker Red 2020 Rubi JT, I had a LE on order but was tired of waiting for delivery.

Purchased it on May 6 in Michigan, and it went straight to America's Most Wanted 4x4. They just finished the Dynatrac CodeX build and will be starting mine this week. You can see my Red JT in the background.

For right now, I'm swapping in a Demon motor and a 8HP75 Tranny.

I'd like to do a pre-runner style build. I want to be able to handle high speed off road terrain, I'll leave the JK for rock crawling.

No idea yet on suspension, one tons for sure, maybe a rear 80.

I'll post pics once I get updated ones from AMW.

Lol, I'm towing it down just in case.

Actually my JL is a 6spd, he's going to use the factory jt tranny and swap it to auto. I'll take up the jl and bring down the jt

They are available as crate engines now
Can’t wait to see some video, if you’d be so kind as to post once it’s finished.

America's Most Wanted 4x4 ordered a crate motor. He has a very good working relationship with MOPAR and is one of their largest reseller of MOPAR parts. He's done a fair amount of 6.4 and hell cat swaps, always with new parts.

What are your plans for cooling and brakes?
Cooling I honestly don't know. AMW is creating these as kits(not demon but 6.4 and hell cats). I know they're addressing cooling, but don't know details.
As they become available I'll make sure to share on the thread.
AMW has a good reputation, and were the only ones who were able to fix my 4lo issue on my JK. I do trust them implicitly. I've seen their swaps and they look factory, just like how AEV use to do their swaps. I do have an AEV 6.4 swapped JK already.

Brakes will depend on axles. Still don't know which route I'm going axle wise, but I'll definitely be upgrading them, even if I go UD60's.
