KC HiLITES Ė Never before seen photos of their TJ w/ a HEMI

I thought you all mite like to see this. Iím sure some of you have see pics of this TJ, but I know full well you havenít seen these. This is KC Lites very own TJ, built right here in Flagstaff by Larry Deibel and his crew of Deibel Jeep.

Iím pretty sure its an 05 LJ Rubicon, but donít know 100%. These pics were taken a little over a year ago when the Jeep was being fitted with its 5.7L Hemi. The Hemi was installed in the Jeep, but not running yet. In a few of the pics you will see orange boxes on the other side of the TJ, inside them were more Hemis waiting to be installed into other TJs.

You have seen this Jeep around on KCís website, or even on the back of the latest Quadratec magazine. Maybe even inside. I took these pics my self and kinda for got all about them until I was looking through some old files. So for your viewing pleaser, here the TJ.

LOL probably not very fast. Look at all those damn lights, just think of all the wind resistance. J/K. I bet it moves!

I bet if you turned on all those lights at once it'd be like driving the sun.

And I want a Hemi. Who cares about MPG anyways?

I was wondering what kind of spare tire rack that is. I've never seen a rack that carries gas cans and mounts to the rear door.
