    Holy Jeez! They’re making like 100k profit per vehicle. The hellcat crate engine is $16,800 on this site

    Even if you upgraded everything all the way to the tires, your still prob like 40-50k tops even with labor + base price of the gladiator. If I was super wealthy and didn’t care about money I’d take one tho hahaha. Guess that’s why they do it!

    Are the wheels forged? If they are, not a valid comparison.

    $2995 per wheel, they are also for the Dana 60, so I don't even think they would fit on a stock axle, $12K for 4 wheels is insane, and I would bet they are forged like the Shelby R wheel which is about the same price.

    I want to know where he found 5 lug Dana 60 axles. Or how he plans to keep 1000 hp cool. He's basically selling the wish-list of a 12-year old with no clue how to deliver what he's promised. All the photoshop is laughable at best

    For those of you unfamiliar with Hennessey Performance's history I'll give you this (link) - just make sure you have hours of time to read up on how the company was able to make so many people so very unhappy. There are many threads on the same subject...

    https://www.google.com/search?sxsrf...hUKEwiHv8atlMflAhUTFjQIHSFDDc8Q4dUDCAs&uact=5

    Long track record of separating people from piles of money leaving them very pissed off.

    If they were the last company on earth to work with I'd stay away from them but that's just me

    That's the Hennessey MO.

    This thing is just stupid - 1000hp in a Jeep? You don't need 1000hp to go 1-2mph over some rocks. You don't even need 100. The only reason the current one needs 285hp is so it can cruise comfortably down the highway and tow stuff - and the engine isn't the limitation at the current rating.
