Spec-Class Hemi Wranglers Compete in King of the Hammers

New Vehicles Part of "Every Man Challenge"

Edward A. SanchezFeb 6, 2014
There are fewer names more synonymous with the off-road lifestyle and hobby than Jeep, and there are fewer off-road competitions more challenging and rigorous than the King of the Hammers competition held in Johnson Valley, California. So what better way to prove the toughness and durability of its products than to field them in an off-road race? That's exactly what Jeep was thinking in fielding six new spec Wranglers powered by 5.7-liter Hemi V-8 crate engines to compete in today's 2014 Griffin King of the Hammers.
The Hemi-powered Wranglers are part of the newly created 4700 Spec Class vehicles as part of the Every Man Challenge category. The grille and side profile have a passing resemblance to a TJ Wrangler, but make no mistake, these are full-fledged tube-frame race vehicles.
The 4700 Spec Class was created to give both professional and amateur off-roaders a turnkey solution to compete in the legendary race. In addition to the King of the Hammers competition, the six Jeeps are also scheduled to compete at the Nor Cal Stampede in May, the Ultra4 Glen Helen Grand Prix in San Bernardino and American Rocksports Challenge in Tooele, Utah, in July, and the Nitto Tire National Championship in Moapa, Nevada, outside of Las Vegas
