Oh… there are a hell lot of things which make this custom Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 6X6 pickup truck more appealing than the Jeep Gladiator.
It’s an era of third axle trucks, we must say. Now, the G63 AMG 6X6, the Maybach G650 Landaulet, and the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6 have some competition coming in. But it isn’t from a mainstream manufacturer. Meet the Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 6X6. It’s a one-off built by Exotic Custom Motorsports and it’s for sale on Craigslist right now.
Shell out $ $289,900 and this custom truck with three axles and loads of road presence can be yours. So what does the package offer in addition to the increased ride height, the third axle, the new pickup bed, and the angry-looking front fascia?
How about a Dodge Hellcat supercharged 6.2-liter V8 engine under the hood? We are talking about a unit which churns out 707 horsepower and 650 pound-feet of torque. Standing tall on 5-inch (127-mm) lift kit and shod with 35-inch off-road tires, this Jeep Wrangler Rubicon 6X6 can take on any terrain all day.
The Craigslist ad also mentions a custom-made carbon fiber hood scoop, custom wheels, custom leather interior, and a custom built rack as part of the bespoke truck’s list of features.
The truck is pretty new as it was built for the 2018 SEMA Show and has got around 105 miles on the odo. The price tag may drive off many buyers as some may call it an overpriced lifted Jeep Wrangler. But hey, it’s a lot cheaper than the Hennessey VelociRaptor 6X6.
