I went online, did many and several "build your own" options and Nowhere could i find the kit . . .

Then NOT 1 but 2 local dealerships had absolutly NO clue what i was talking about . . .

I got told "Jeep has offer a truck in over 20yrs" . . . "If there is a conversoin kit we haven't been informed of it" are the 2 lines i got from both dealerships ! ! !

I'll have to take that part number to the local Jeep dealerships, Cause they don't know diddly about it around here . . . All the write ups clearly state "Available through mopar at your local Chrysler dodge jeep ram dealers"

They've got them in-stock at Quadratech.

Not only is it on the Quadratec site, it's the feature item of the week on there. Also, just because a dealership doesn't know about it, doesn't mean they can't get it. We often know more about what is coming out than they do.

I don't know how you COULD justify dropping the icon. On the other hand, I can definitely see ways to improve it. Like, for instance, bringing the damned tilt passenger seat back so people can get into the back seat.

a few things I forgot to mention about the JK8:

- The seats don't really tilt forward; you need to get a set of seats from the 2-door.

- The changes to the rollbar make you lose the soundbar.

- The truck looks funny unless you lift it.

- There are no instructions. Well, okay, there's a guideline. But it's just not the same.

- The wiring for the 3rd brake light needs to be re-run somewhere else. It looks funny coming out of the place that it originally ran.
