THE JEEPZILLA! Better known in the shop as Over Kill! This 1986 CJ7 on steroids, has had close to $80,000 spent to make it the Monster it is today. This over the top build has less than 500 miles since completion and has never been registered for the road, yet. It has been used mostly for marketing and minimal light off-road excursions. The new fiberglass body kit was professionally painted in high impact silver and has a beautiful shine with consistent silver pigment. The engine powering Jeepzilla is a fire breathing AMC 390 with dual 500CFM carbs. The AMC 400 (modified) transmission with Dana 300 transfer case, Rockwell 2 ton differentials (military axles narrowed 17 inches), 49/21-16.5lt tires, 49 inch IROC Clement 16.5X14 wheels, hydraulic rear steer for tight turns and rock crawling. All parts, including engine, were assembled using stainless steel fasteners. This Jeep won World of Wheels on the 4 wheel class and it is truly a show Jeep. 26 inch total lift, 4 inch fully boxed frame, custom built front and rear heavy duty bumpers. (It is too tall to fit in a standard garage) Four wheel disc brakes with 6 piston calipers front and rear. Overson Engineering, Super 8 hubs with 6 piston calipers and 16'' discs at all corners. Rear steer with Dalton Hydraulics pump and directional valves with stops. 15 gallon aluminum fuel cell fiberglass tub with one piece tilt front end and Painless wiring. Interior consists of custom stainless dash, polished stainless steering column and linkage, corbeau seats, custom instrument and distribution panels with Flaming River column and shafts, Grant wheel, Painless wiring and 5 Point harnesses. 15 gallon RCI aluminum fuel cell, AGR steering box and high output pump. Bumpers are custom made as much of the other brackets. This is the second time we have owned this beast of a Jeep. The pictures were taken the first time we owned it and it has not changed much other than easily removable Jeepzilla graphics on the sides and back.
