I’m not looking for in detail specifics but my end goal is to buy a Dodge Challenger Hellcat Redeye Widebody wrecked and convert it to a AWD Hellcat Redeye Widebody. so how would I go about doing this?

i want to fab an enlarged fuel tank, upgraded fuel pumps if need, reinforce the entire frame, Stiffen the chassis, armor the body panels and windows, the wheel setup on a wider devils rim style wheel to be flush with the widebody fenders, have the suspension setup in a way to be good all around but heavy duty if in a minimal impact, I need to find a way to mount a ram bar to the crash bar frame area and a secondary mount through the grill to the inner part of the frame, but in order to compensate for all the extra weight I’ll need to up the power and transmission, in which the transmission is going to be true manual. All tips and info is greatly appreciated.

I know it sounds insane and way overdone but this is only a broad version of the plan.

Basically do it like Junkyard Dave
He is making a AWD Widebody Hellcat Charger Magnum the way the factory would have. Only transfercase that could handle the torque is the TrackHawk's and it has the front driveshaft on the other side. He is altering the floor, and basically putting JGC front suspension/subframe under it.

This has already been done and can be purchased brand new from Armorex I think the name is ..
Comes in a charger body with hellcat motor..but I’m sure you can order a REDEYE as they are done brand new..

Wonder what the story is with that ? doesn’t seem wrecked but some hillbilly probably built it and jumped it into a lake for some dumb you-tuber channel.lol...
Looks like they might of stuck a truck driveline in it lol...

You might as well buy a Trackhawk. Who wants a 5000lb+ Redeye.
Obviously some people do, as there’s a big market for them, if you can afford and need a bulletproof car..
But I was referring to using the driveline only .. I’d love a AWD REDEYE /hellcat in a Challenger body, that would be killer if set up with the same suspension type as a REDEYE, all around road car, not simply a 1/4 mile beast ,yet a god AWD system with a good road/track suspension would lend its self to faster 1/4 miles times anyway..I wouldn’t think the weight of a AWD System if set up correctly would hurt its performance..never seen a AWD beaten by either a RWD/FWD of the same body with the same power before...

Dodge built a scat pack3 AWD GT 440hp hemi about 5 yrs ago, with the widebody kit, bigger brakes ,a road course set up..shame they never made any more..
