Jeeps burning rubber at the drag strips are nothing new, yet some of these sprinting once-offroaders are more special than others.
The one we are here to discuss is no experiment, being extremely serious about its goal – and this contraption is aiming for no less than the quarter-mile record.
The Jeep CJ we are looking at has been given its velocity transformation by Pro Fab Performance, with a Florida-based developer going all out for this build.
To be more specific, this machine has given up its good old AMC powerplant, going for the 400 ci Ford small block, which uses the 88mm turbo to deliver the mandatory kicks.
This Jeep is here in its 2.0 form, with the vehicle having visited a drag strip in the past. While most drivers would’ve gone for a wheelie bar (it’s the nice accessory for that forced-fed V8), this owner of this speed animal has decided to let the front axle fly. So yes, this rugged animal can play the wheelie game as well as the motorcycle.
You can check out the adventures of the machine at South Georgia Motorsports Park in this video. Don’t let yourself fooled by the fact that the Jeep isn’t exactly winning the races it engages in.
