Jeep SRT Tyrannos

Now this doesn't have anything to do with the Trackhawk, but it does look like a very intriguing wide body kit. Not too sure I'm fond of the front bumper, but I do like the hood. The rear bumper is nice, not fond of the whole double spoiler thing going on though.

There isn't a price as you have to contact the company for the conversion which leads me to believe it's a built to order kit.

It's made by a Russian tuning company called Maxi Customs

What do you think ??

Would love to see a pair of turbos sticking behind those two outer front air dams...

I don't know, the kit doesn't really stand out as something I want. It looks different from the front, the rest of it is whatever. I'll pass on it.

If there's anything aftermarket can learn for higher selling volume SUV's like this its the fact that German tuning brands KNOW how to design. Startech is a good example of one.

Can't be that hard to incorporate some of these cues on the GC, especially that entire rear bumper setup.

That whole bottom of that rear bumper looks like it could be integrated and would look beautiful on the Jeep GC. But you are right about that. The German tuning companies know how to modify and design kits for SUVs.

****... those look amazing. Prior Design I feel is always on the ball. What are the chances they'll take on a Trackhawk ?! I highly doubt it...

May just get a carbon fiber good and some race wheels and call it a day.

I'm glad you posted that Cayenne because these days there's a growing trend of overfenders being sold by aftermarket companies and it has expanded to a manufacture level.

If you look at the new Challenger Demon, it has overfenders, a prime example of what might make its way to the Trackhawk.

It is a big possibility that it would make it to the Trackhawk. Seeing as it required 315 section tires, it may sound real large for a car, but an SUV could definitely make use out of it perfectly especially with all that power and the over fender just to keep fitment clean would be ideal.

The only difference I can see happening is the need for a higher profile tire, aside from that it will work. just have to factor in the vehicles dynamics when looking at tires from say a ... sporty coupe to mid-sized SUV.

Tires with a profile as meaty as the Tyrannos would be ideal.

They would have to drop rim size to say 18's. Run tires that are perhaps 305/40 and that'll give you close to a 5inch thick sidewall ? That should be sufficient.

That or 19" run flats since that will do well in holding up to the sort of power being put out. Tough to say really, many dynamics to factor in. But what the Demon has will always be a good point of reference
