JK8 for sale a Jeep dealer

I saw this new JK8 for sale at Kelly Jeep in Lynnfield MA today. There was no sticker in the window so I don't know the price, I stopped just long enough to give it a once over and take this picture.

Doesn’t the JK8 come with a Dana 60 in the rear?

How can one of these cost more than a fully loaded Cummins Ram?

I think someone said "frickin ridiculous." I agree.

Having owned a Rubitrux conversion Jeep, I wonder what structural issues the JK8 will come up with since its missing most of the rollbar.

It is. The kit's called the JK8 Independence kit.

EDIT: The kit is about $5000 to buy yourself. The dealers jack them up a bit because they can, and to cover labour, but if you can follow instructions and have access to a paintgun, you can do it yourself for way less.

Local dealer has one here on 35" tires and a couple of rather cheap looking Steele bumpers. I didn't see a sticker price so I checked their website which said $54,460

They are out of their mind!

I found a link to it:

I love how every dealer in the universe that sells modded Jeeps always use ****tybilt bumpers.
