My name is Eric, with MADNESS Autoworks.
Quick bio on us - We’re the global leader in aftermarket performance parts and accessories for modern Alfa Romeo, Fiat, and some of the international-engined Jeeps as well (Wrangler JL, Renegade, Compass, Cherokee). We specialize in plug-and play electronic performance modules that vastly improve drivability and seriously bump up power and torque levels.

We ship out orders from our webstores globally and tackle everything from basic service to full-custom one-off builds at our full-service shops in the Los Angeles, CA and Austin, TX areas. While we are somewhat new to the Wrangler platform, we’re coming to this with a specialized background in the 2.0T powertrain and drivetrain that this new Wrangler offers – and man, is it fun!
This full build as our newest MADNESS Autoworks flagship vehicle was done out of our Austin shop over the course of a couple weeks. All the products we used on this build can be found on our website, and I’ll include links below.
We want to share what we’ve done on this one with the community here, to lend some inspiration to your builds, put visuals to a lot of hypothetical questions about fitment and appearance, and hopefully steer some of you in the right direction as far as what to do next!
Hope you guys like the end result as much as we do, this thing as absolutely a blast to drive and still surprises me with how much pickup and torque it’s got, even with the huge 37’s.

I’m going to have to break this up into a few posts, so we’ll start off with the exterior for today before moving onto interior, power and performance.
Will update with more in the next days. Thanks in advance for checking us out, and please give us your feedback!
