Walking around the 2019 SEMA Show, the first thing you notice is that there are a lot of Jeeps on display—every style and type you can dream up. With so many Jeeps everywhere, it's really hard to stand out in a crowd. Well, the out-of-the-box thinkers over at Freedom Fabworks came up with a build recipe that we're sure gave Jeep purists a true WTF moment.

Based out of Flint, Michigan, Freedom Fabworks showed off this ride last year and we're liking this year's version even more. Believe it or not, this Frankenjeep started out as the tub from a 2017 Wrangler. It was chopped 8 inches and narrowed 2 inches. But, as you can see, that was only the tip of the modification iceberg. Slammed on bags with 40-inch tires and 1-ton axles creates a jeep/rat-rod combination that dares you to ignore it.

To turn those huge tires 5.38 gears and zip lockers work in concert with a GM 6.0L LS mill mated to a 4L80 trans. So why is it right-hand drive? No, it's not to deliver the mail—although that would be fun—it was done to keep the four-wheel-drive system with the rest of the ride slammed on the deck.

However you slice up this freak of SEMA, it shows how taking chances can really make your ride stand out in the biggest automotive crowd on Earth.
