    Steam-powered Jeep JK 6-wheeler - photos and video

    Steam-powered Jeep JK 6-wheeler.





    Beneath the hood, the Jeep is home to a relatively tiny 100ci V4 trunk-piston, poppet-valve uniflow steam engine from the 1960’s. It only produces between 130 hp and 140 hp, but churns out a remarkable 2,500 lb-ft of torque! This engine was designed and built by Charles Keen for the Keen Steamliner 2 automobile sometime around 1960.

    yep if 2500 ftlbs won't get it done it not going to get done. you's be hard pressed to find many semi rigs with that much torque.

    Great build in 8 weeks very Impressive, interior looks steam punk too...Road Warrior deluxe! I think the steering wheel weighs more than a Prius....I don't suppose any of you have cameras....Busted me up.

    Not sure I want one but a fine build with some Six By Six giddyup. Thanks Jon!
