The modern Jeep Grand Wagoneer is luxurious, but a little soulless compared to its predecessor. That’s why there are those whose heart belongs to the classic SUV. Luckily, there are companies like Vigilante, which just completed work on a restomod based on a 1988 SUV.

The project began with a complete disassembly of a classic SUV and body work. Then new tempered windows, improved sound insulation and new 17-inch wheels with an old-school design were installed. They are complemented by restored chrome trim, power side steps and iconic wood grain accents.

The upgrade continues in the cabin, where the seats have been redesigned with new springs, foam and padding. Then they were wrapped in leather and made with velvet inserts. The Grand Wagoneer also features advanced climate control for both front and rear passengers.

Under the hood is now a supercharged 6.2-liter Hellcat Redeye Hemi V8 engine that produces 807 hp. (602 kW) and 971 Nm of torque. It’s mated to a Bowler four-speed automatic transmission and Atlas-II transfer case.

The stock axles were replaced with Dana 44s and 60s front and rear, along with an Eibach four-link coilover suspension complemented by Fox Racing shocks. Other features include a lift kit and a six-piston brake system.

The project is undoubtedly impressive, but the price is steep: the company is asking for $385,000 (~34 million rubles). That’s almost 4 times more expensive than a brand new Jeep Grand Wagoneer.
