Srt-6?

I swear I've searched to the death of this topic, but everything I can find is about a KJ liberty. Then I noticed a totaled SRT-6 KK and now I want info.

What's it entail, and what's the estimated cost?

I was looking at the Grand Cherokee but I'm leaning more towards a Libby and I'd like to know my possibilities.

The Liberty you saw with the SRT-6 badge was just that, only a badge.
He just bought it and stuck it on there.

No SRT Jeeps aside from the SRT-8 Grand Cherokee. The KK owner made his own custom "SRT" KK. Buy SRT-6 badges and you can do the same. Expect a lot of work if you want the performance of an SRT though.

To give the owner his just deserve... He did more than badges, sadly, before it was totaled. He did wheels, brakes, and interior work as well and maybe suspension. I'm sure with some work you could replicate his work. His user name is myfirstjeep1. PM him what all he did to it, I'm sure he'd tell you. Normally that stuff is not my cup of tea, but his dress up was done very well. Even using factory Chrysler design wheels. Understandable that at first glance you would think it was a SRT vehicle.

Lemme chime in here everyone since I never had a chance to unveil it...

The only way you would get a true SRT-6 would be to transplant the 330 HP crossfire engine along with transmission. Custom engine management has to be done along with piggybacking for stock components in dash, along with a complete 4x4 dismantling switching to just rear wheel drive. I chose speedshift TCU tuning...it had the smoothest curve for the power gains looking for. The rear driveshaft would have to be removed and replaced. I used lightweight aluminum from Driveshaft Specialists in San Antonio Texas. I had custom engine mounts made by a machine shop in my building...they do all custom stuff (NYC Norton/Spannerland). The only unfortunate thing was that the dash was lit up like a christmas tree, never got a chance to fully work out all the bugs. You have to pull all hoses, electrical, and subframe out and really...i mean really have a good shop take care of this for you. It will set you back money.....roughly 125+ hours, plus cost of all the materials. It can be done....with time and money...Thanks to Phil at JDS Speed and Micheal at LUX

Custom suspension is not needed, but added to the look. Go SRT wheels from 300C SRT-8. Perfect offset and tucked look.

The really nice part of the system was my custom catback. I had a dump valve run parallel to the exhaust and tie back into the rear exit of it. When i wanted growl, i flipped the switch and immediately the sound became a roar.

I have some engine bay pics that I will post up when I get home

I don't think he did an actual engine swap. He's very humble about it if he did. Never heard of that tuning before either.

I was not humble, nor am I still. I didn't even have the car for two weeks after the work was done. It was an eye opening experience. I just had my first baby and realized I would rather spend my time and money on her than on cars anymore. It was an absolute waste of money for just 2 weeks of enjoyment that I couldn't recoup if I bought out the car from insurance since it was still financed and I wanted to get out of it. They gave me nothing near what I wanted. But it was more than I would have made if parted out and then paying the note with the bank. If anybody wants to duplicate the build I have all the paperwork of what you need and the costs associated.

The tuning is specific for that engine and transmission. I had the tcu customized for the lighter driveshaft along with their mapping for the piggybacked ecu. The manufacturer is euro charged performance

I am no professional on this. That's why I paid them. My understanding was that the piggyback unit dummied as a crossover for the cluster, abs, and the rest of the necessary components

So you had an engine swap in that thing?

Yes. Wish you could tell us how it drove! Where do I start with the questions...
Must have been a nightmare with insurance now that I think about it.
Ever calculate your mpg with that setup?

Yeah, I'm definitely interested in learning more about how you did it and the estimated costs. Coming from a tuner car I'm looking to do something similar with my KK.
