A little over 4 years ago we did an article on Starwood Motors’ customized Jeep Wrangler program and at the time we thought not much else could be done beyond the work we had already seen.
Fast forward to yesterday when we first laid our eyes on one of the sickest versions of the Jeep Wrangler from Starwood Custom division called the “Bandit”.
According to Starwood Motors’ official website, “The conversion extends the frame both in front and behind the rear axle. Custom drive shafts, brake lines, and wiring harness extensions are installed. Finally the frame is reinforced for ride and handling.”
Here are some official specs:
- Layout: 4WD 5-Passenger, 4-Door Pickup
- Base Engine: 3.6L/285-hp/260-ft-lbs DOHC 24-Valve
- Standard Transmission: 6-Speed Automatic
- Wheelbase: 136.0 inches
- Overall Length: 215.0 inches
- Interior Bed Length x Width: 61″ L x 53.5″ W
- Fuel Capacity: 22.5 gal
- Max Tow Capacity: 3,500 lbs
The pictures are nice, but the one featured in the first video at the beginning of this article would be the one we would go with – blacked out and badass.
To get a feel for the pricing, a used Bandit (the one featured in the second video) is currently on sale at Starwood for just under $145,000.
Given the amount of work they put into each build, we’d say that price is right around the money (plus you can take it anywhere you wherever the hell you want).
