Arguably the only Jeep Wrangler that is "more show than go" in existence, the Fab Fours Legend made a killing at the 2014 SEMA Show. Its look is about as outrageous as a clown on fire, which is probably why the Legend got the chance to be featured on Jay Leno’s Garage recently. As expected, Leno was very impressed with the concept car, especially since it’s actually street-legal and can be driven (almost) like a regular, lifted Jeep. He went through a detailed presentation of the spectacular vehicle, after which he drove it both on and off the road

The suspension is stock, as is the engine, but the Legend is fitted with 50-inch tires that engulf 24-inch rims, making the car look like a military vehicle from a dystopian future. The gigantic wheels were able to be fitted only after Fab Fours increased the front/rear tracks and the wheelbase. That was probably not the most complicated body modification though, as the roof was also lowered, while the windows were replaced with custom, red-tinted ones.

Jay didn’t seem too ecstatic about the red window tint or the fact that none of the windows can be lowered in case a policeman decides to pull the car over, but he was impressed with how the car drives, especially considering the extensive modifications. The Legend is powered by a 3.6-liter V-6 that delivers 285 horsepower and 260 pound-feet of torque, so it has no problem moving those gigantic tractor wheels, although it does have altered gearing.
