    Jeep JK8 Project

    Ok, I have bit the bullet.
    I ordered the Mopar JK8 conversion kit.
    It came in a few weeks ago.

    If you are not familiar with this, this is the one-way conversion kit from Mopar that turns a 4-door Jeep Wrangler JK into a 2-door pickup truck.
    I am starting with a 2007 Jeep JK Sahara.

    I am very excited for this build.
    I am building it to sell.
    I will post updated pics as I go along.

    Let me know if you have any questions.
    Thanks, Sam

    cool, the conversion actually looks easier than I thought. The local dealership here sells already converted jeeps at a $12,000 additional cost.

    what does the kit with out labor cost?
    It used to be a jeep Thing,
    But all that stuff broke

    Bulkhead & Hardtop are fitted.
    Next step is to seal the bulkhead around edges.
