Born from the desire to buck the trend, Project 3AJAJ throws offroad passion and creativity into a stealthy concoction and pours it all over a 2016 Jeep Wrangler.

Farhan Al Bastaki, Project 3AJAJ’s creator, picked up a completely standard Jeep Wrangler Unlimited and took it straight to RAMY Automotive to begin work on a complete upgrade of the car. Born and raised in the UAE, Farhan knew what he wanted to change on the vehicle so with the help of RAMY’s part specialists Marwan Semaan and Dean Le Roux, he quickly decided on how he was going to improve the Jeep.

The biggest change is undoubtable that Action Truck pickup conversion which takes the 4 door Wrangler’s extended wheelbase and throws out the rear seats to make way for a pickup bed. It completely transforms the entire side profile of the car with the external roll cage and that prerunner esque spare tyre mounted in the bed.

Next up, was suspension. Farhan chose the TITAN Performance Suspension Stage 3+. The updated suspension is linked to Artec reinforced axles, a necessity to ensure the massive 35” KUMHO tires are properly supported. All that extra height would make getting in and out quite a challenge, so a set of AOR powerboards have been included which automatically deploy when the door is opened and retract again when it is closed.

Bigger tires and suspension often lead to a marginal loss of usable power. RAMY threw in a Sprintex supercharger producing a whopping extra 100 horsepower but the addition of a custom unlocked PCM from Diablo and an axle back exhaust breath new fire into the 3.6L V6. All this extra grunt is routed through a Spec clutch and AOR 4.10 gear ratios so that the truck really takes off when you put your foot down. Diff locks? Yes, it’s got them, a Yukon air locker in each axle.

Apart from the pickup conversion, the outside of Farhan’s truck is protected by front and rear bumpers, the former receiving a Warn Zeon Platinum winch (which can be controlled via a wireless remote!). Staying up front, the standard halogen headlights have been done away with in favour of a set of LED’s from AOR to really shine into the night. Another unique detail that catches your eye are the fenders, bumpers and power boards which have all been finished in a Linex style coating that protects as well as it looks.

One of main features on Farhan’s Jeep Wrangler Pickup is the pneumatic system for tires. It incorporates a 4 gallon Extreme Outback air tank hooked up to a Wild Boar air pump which is capable of deflating all 4 tires to a digitally set pressure in a matter of minutes. If that’s not enough, RAMY has included an ExtremeAire portable compressor for good measure.
