Jeep has produced an aftermarket package for the Wrangler's owners and set a price tag at $5499. The JK-8 kit made it public appearance at the 2011 Jeep Moab Safari. Using this package, the engineers managed to transform the Wrangler Unlimited into Wrangler Unlimited pickup in one hour. The JK-8 is sold in any Jeep, Chrysler, Ram and Dodge dealerships. Mopar dealership can assist the drivers in package installation. Such kits comes with a three-year, 36,000 mile warranty.
The conversion kit includes body panel reinforcements, made of stamped sheet metal, new, shortened roof panel, manufactured of fiberglass, and a converted sport bar. The installation will require drilling as some body panels need to have spot welds. Moreover, it will be necessary to remove bumpers, doors and roof.
Jeep says the appearance of the 1981 CJ-8 Scrambler inspired the engineering team to produce this kit. This model was popular until 1986, when the Comanche pickup was unveiled. Rumors go that Jeep is hard at work to produce a new pickup truck, but the official confirmation has not been released yet.
