HELLHOG: 754 HELLCAT HP IN A JEEP 6X6
Posted on November 3, 2015
By now, unless you live under a rock, you have heard about the 700+ horsepower Hellcat engine that’s available in the Dodge Charger. Well, isn’t that nice. But what have you got for Jeep fans? Well guys and gals, here’s your answer. From the minds of the gang at Wild Boar, comes the Hellhog.
The Hellhog is a custom built six-wheel-drive Jeep JK Wrangler with a Hellcat powerplant and matching transmission tucked under its hood. This show rig is a rolling (we mean roaring because it was the first Hellcat-powered Jeep Wrangler to actually run) marketing tool for what Wild Boar plans to eventually offer as a 754 HP supercharged Hemi Jeep JK Wrangler 4×4 that you can buy.
This particular unit was built in cooperation with Dakota Customs who got the engine transplanted and purring like a lion. The engine is a Hellcat Hemi that has been tuned to crank out 754 HP and 675 pound-feet of torque. The Dakota Customs Stage 2 Viking build on the transmission allows it to handle as much as 1,000 HP. It can more than handle the Hellcat. A Wild Boar vented hood tops the engine compartment and was custom designed to resemble the Hellcat Charger hood. There’s a Mopar 44 up front, and the rear Mopar 44 works in concert with a Ford 9-inch pass-through axle with custom driveshafts. All three hold 4:10 gears. Custom King 2.0 shocks damp the Wild Boat suspension and allow adjustability up to 2 inches in lift. Fuel Lethal off-road wheels are wrapped with 35-inch Toyo Open Country M/T tires.
Wild Boar added one of its custom auxiliary fuel tanks, some of its custom fenders, and a custom fiberglass top from FinCo Fabrication. Wild Boar also bolted up its custom roof rack, as well is its beefy front and rear bumpers. A 2wayair onboard air supply system was also part of the Hellhog’s build; the system allows tires to be aired up and down without any kneeling on the ground by the driver. The Hellhog nameplates were made by Orange County Nameplate.
On the front bumper you’ll find a Comeup Winch Seal Gen2 9.5 waterproof winch with built-in wireless remote control. An Intelligence Dashboard information center inhabits the interior. Speaking of the interior, the passenger compartment features custom Wet Okole seat covers, and is completely upholstered by Stitch Corporation. The custom Kevlar paint was sprayed by Exotic Custom Cars & Designs, creating a two-tone pattern split by a red stripe running from nose to tail.
