A walking ball of wax
American Expedition Vehicles (AEV) modifies TJs into 'Brute'. Can be packed up with a 5.7 gasser or 3.0 diesel. Basic conversions start at 8k.
I never thought about a manual hemi, dam that would be fun.Right hand drive wrangler...that would kewl to wheel around! I like driving on the right better than the left anyways.
I would rather have their hemi conversion though...if they offered it with a 5/6 speed manual!
