Though the Captain America Wrangler inside the South Hall was certainly the coolest custom Jeep we saw at this year’s SEMA show, if we could have driven just one away, it would probably be the Bandit.
Built by Dallas shop Starwood Motors, the Bandit is a conversion of a 2012 Wrangler into a full-fledged pickup. According to the shop’s website, the Bandit was made possibly by a 48-inch frame and body extension and a reworked cab enclosure.
In addition to its long bed pickup box, the Bandit features a Lifted Performance hood, Fab Fours rear and front bumpers with grill guard and tire carrier and a 50-inch LED light bar by Rigid.
Under the hood is 7-liter Hemi and a 2.9-liter Whipple supercharger packing this Jeep with an incredible 700 horsepower.
Off-road credentials include a lift kit adjustable from 6 to 12 inches, Fox shocks, Synergy front and rear suspension with coil overs and a Fox ATS dual steering stabilizer.
Though the Starwood site doesn’t list a price on this monster, a post on 95octane from November 29, 2014 pegged the price at $240,000.
