6.4 Hemi Swap

I finally pulled the trigger and had a 6.4 Hemi swapped into my 2017 Jeep JK.

I was going back and forth between an LS Swap and a Hemi Swap, but my OCD gave me no choice in the end so I went with the Hemi.

I had the swap done at America's Most Wanted 4X4 in Holly Michigan. They did a great job and I am extremely happy with it!

While I was there picking up my Jeep I was able to look at another project they were going to start working on. The owner of the project is a pretty famous social media guy on YouTube (TheStradman ). He has his new Jeep Gladiator there to get the new "Hellephant" Swap (It's the purple wrapped Gladiator pictured by my Jeep). I'm sure it's going to be a crazy ride. If you watch his video you can spot my Jeep in a few of the clips.

Ha Ha...… thank you!

The cost for the swap is on their website, but I can tell you Rory (Their sales manager) worked with me on the price.

I could find the cost of the engine but not the conversion.

Do you tow a fuel trailer or does a tanker just get assigned to you?

Also, does it work with all the dash messages?

I might be wrong here but something tells me fuel costs to this guy is a zero issue.

True. Still does not negate the need for plenty of it!

Luckily this is not my daily driver so I wasn't concerned with the MPG. I am currently getting 17 MPG if I keep my foot out of it and 7.5 MPG if I drive it like I stole it (It's a rough # to swallow, but it pays back huge dividends in SMILES per mile). I'm running 4.88 gears which was perfect with the 3.6, but a tad too much for the 6.4 (In my opinion). If I change I may go 4.10's/4.56's. At 80 MPH I'm running at 2950 so it eats the fuel.

Everything on the dash works as normal.

I bet it's an absolute blast to drive! Your lift and tire combo look perfect. Do you wheel or just street race? Any tire rubbing?

Thank you. The swap has transformed the Jeep and it is definitely a blast to drive!

I have an AEV 3.5 inch lift and run 37's. The Jeep gets used equally in the Michigan Sand Dunes and ORV trails / Tennessee and Kentucky off-road parks / Street Cruiser.

I don't have any rubbing, but I have to run a slightly bigger rear bump stop due to the factory fender flairs. I could get more articulation with 35's, but I like the way it wheels with the 37's compared to 35's.
