    I'd have to disagree with the article. I think I could build one for a whole lot less then $50K...

    well you figure a hemi swap alone if you have aev or any other shop do it is 24-30k alone depending on the engine plus all the other work a shop would do would be prolly right around 50k including cost of a base JK... but a DIYer with the equipment and skills could do it for way less

    Who cares if it could be done a little cheaper? AEV will do it as a turn-key with a warranty.
