We’ve assembled an incredible list of modified machines for the inaugural Custom 4X4 Of The Year award.
The Wild Boar crew are known for sticking bits and pieces into models that were never made for them, but the Hellhog is undoubtedly their masterpiece.
The range-topping Hellhog has a supercharged 6.2-litre Hemi with a 2.3-litre twin-screw supercharger from IHI and a pair of intercoolers. With custom heavy-duty engine and transmission mounts, a whole new wiring loom, and a custom Borla exhaust, the hog’s donk pushes out 562kW and 915Nm. This animal has a claimed 0-130km/h of just 8.1 seconds.
To match the outrageous engine, the stock Hellcat auto has a Dakota Customs Stage 2 Viking-spec build, meaning it can handle up to 1000Nm of punishment – and drive the hog’s six massive wheels.
The chassis is stretched 915mm for the third-powered axle and pass-through diff, with the added benefit of an extra storage bed found under the tonneau cover at the rear of the Jeep.
Heavy duty Dana 44s were fitted at the front and rear ends and were mated to a Ford nine-inch pass-through diff with heavy-duty axles and tail shafts. These were fitted with 4.10 final drive gears.
Under Pressure Fabrication fitted a two-inch suspension lift in conjunction with adjustable King 2.0 dampers.
In order to make this beast really stand out, Wild Boar sourced fatter guards and a fibreglass top by FinCo Fabrication from Exotic Custom Car & Design. A 9500lb Seal 2 9.5 winch was added to the front with roof racks, side rails and a tube front and rear bar.
For rough riding, Wild Boar installed a 2WayAir on-board air supply system to allow the 35in Toyo Open Country tyres to be inflated or deflated all at once. The beefy rubber is wrapped around Fuel Lethal multi-spoke bead-locked wheels.
Unfortunately, the Wild Boar Hellhog also comes with a beastly US$300,000 price tag.
Vote for Wild Boar Off-Road’s 6x6 Hellhog to decide this year's Custom 4x4 of the Year.
