392 is a different beast than the 5.7. Also, adding a v8 to the truck is less expensive than adding a v8 to a Jeep due to dimensions of the vehicle and supporting requirements for cooling/safety. So there's certainly added cost. Also, brakes need to likely be larger as well, and likely the 8 speed needs to be the HD version, which adds quite a bit of cost as the existing one is not rated to the torque of a 6.4.A lot of you seem to really be stuck on this $80k price prediction. I guess that is possible, but realistically why would this engine add $20k in costs? The 5.7 in the truck is only $1500 option over the 3.6.
Jeep could just as easily, put a red interior, some Fox shocks, the 5.7, and some 35 inch tires into a much cheaper package
- $4000 for the cost of the engine upgrade.
- $1000 for the transmission change.
- $2000 in cooling/fitment changes.
- $1000 in increased brake size.
- $1500 in suspension changes.
- $500 for the tire differences.
- $1000 upgraded wheels (likely will be wider, could see beadlocks given Bronco option).
- $1000 for the upgraded interior
I dunno... I guess it still doesn't get to $20k and the above numbers are probably on the conservative side (i.e., too high). Maybe a $15k package?
