I sure wanted to sign-up to win, but I don’t do Facebook. What a shame. To bad you don’t have a Web-site to entire.

You messed it up by using a GM motor, should have used a Chrysler motor

4.56 gears with 42″ tires?? That’s the proper gear ratio for 35″ tires. 350HP or not, that Jeep will have a tough time getting up a steep hills much less climb rocks. Looks cool, though.
