Bulgarian tuner Vilner is becoming quite the interior specialists, this time revisiting a Hennessey Jeep Grand Cherokee SRT 600 project. The first time around was back in October 2010, when Vilner got their hands on the 600-hp, V8-powered Grand Cherokee after Hennessey had installed their performance package. This time around though, Vilner redid the entire interior with a similar red and black theme similar to the Jeep's exterior.

On the inside, plenty of red and black Alcantara has been combined with black leather that is trimmed with red seams. In addition, Vilner designed and developed a unique steering wheel for the Grand Cherokee that they claim offers the best possible grip. The steering wheel can be personalized to the customer's preference if requested and is wrapped with a similar Alcantara/leather combination.

For the exterior, Vilner modified the headlights with daytime LEDs and halogen diodes.

I think the exterior is pretty good looking. Not to keen on the interior though.

Damn that thing is done up. I guess to each there own. But I wouldn't spend my money on that. The exterior is okay though.

I can live with the interior...but the outside needs to be set on fire, much like that lime green jeep.

Is the SRT600 package from Henny Turbocharged? The seats say TURBO on them. I thought that was a h/c package? I know they rate their packages at the crank hp. wise but 600 at the engine is WEAK!

I have to ask though, besides the color, where can I get a steering wheel like that. It looks like the new SRT wheels.

Dwight and I were looking at that and he thinks it's a GRANT wheel. I gotta check. I dug that too.:D

Harrison@Stage6
08-05-2011, 02:57 PM
It's not a Grant, Momo, or Sparco...... still looking.:D I think it's custom cut and wrapped.

Yeah the jeep overall is good the interior is nice seems like everything that was cream is red and the stearing wheel is aggressive looking but no one noticed the custom foglights that looks like 100+ l.e.ds in their Nice!

The interior is a lil overdone in red for my taste; if the red was used as more of an accent inside, I think it would look cleaner. As for the exterior, I want MORE pics, lol! Does the high beam look kinda different as well? I realize it is completely painted but I mean that actual lamp itself. Maybe it is a FULL LED like the fogs are???

I'm thinking the high beams are retrofit projectors...

They probably don't even have one anymore. The ones they built were for out of country customers. I'd love for Tony Hawk to show up.:D Would be fun throwing a beat down on his Jeep.

They have skateboards with motors. Maybe Dwight can build the Stage 6 Turbo "Tony Hawk" signature series. :rolleyes: Would be a cool endorsement though. It would also be cool to watch him ride. I can't even remember how many decades it's been since I rode one. And I doubt I ever will gain. The term "bust my ass" keeps popping into the ole squirrel cage.

I don't ride the little boards anymore. I have a long board that my beach cruiser. I'll take that up to the beach when we walk up there. I like to think of my long board as the Caddy Escalade ESV of skate boards. Haha. This thing will just roll forever.

Ik that's a lot but I really wanted it. But I could have sent them my current wheel but that would've been a problem with Brad at them shop. I could have saved that 1200 dollar.

ok, yes that price is UNGODLY, but man that wheel is sick as all outdoors...i mean im damned near working on an erection here, thats jeep porn!!!!!!

i just ordered a wk laredo wheel with blown airbag for $25....when it gets here im going to strip it down to the bare ring, reshape ring with flat bottom design then make a 2 piece mold for the ring with the thumb indents and such that suits me, mix up some 2 part foam, pour in and wait......cover with black alcantara and stitch up with blue thread, change over the airbag, airbag cover and controls from my srt wheel and install.....im thinking $75 tops!!!! im excited now!!!!

thats funny i just returned a used normal wheel from ebay, very hard to work with, the leather ones are so much easier because the outside is separated from the spokes unlike on the all vinyl ones, your going to have fun with that i can tell you
