Got $150,000? How about spending it on this Legacy Scrambler Jeep Conversion?
Spending that much money, you get a lot of stuff. A bit too much for me to write right here, but here is a taste:
turbo-diesel six-cylinder engine tuned by Gale Banks (240 hp, 430 lb-ft of torque)
Suspension from King of the Hammers off-road race
Beadlock aluminium wheels
Here's the verdict:
More often than not, hopping behind the wheel of a vintage-looking 4×4 or rugged SUV has a “never-meet-your-heroes” feel to it (see: Land Rover Defender). Thankfully, that’s not what happened when we got behind the wheel of this Legacy Scrambler Conversion. It has vintage good looks, a powertrain from a military vehicle, a curb weight that’s beyond belief, and an ability to conquer the world. If we only have one gripe, it’s with the price.
Yes, you’re getting what you pay for, and Icon, Singer, AEV, and a few other coach built companies have shown that there is a market for super-expensive updated classics. Nevertheless, around $150,000 for a Scrambler is a heck of a lot of money for most of the population, especially when you consider this isn’t a vehicle you’d probably use every day. We’d love one, but we’d never be able to afford it.
