Jeep JK8 Project

Ok, I have bit the bullet.
I ordered the Mopar JK8 conversion kit.
It came in last Wednesday.

If you are not familiar with this, this is the one-way conversion kit from Mopar that turns a 4door Jeep Wrangler JK into a 2door 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

I removed the following:
- soft top

- rear carpet
- rear doors
- spare tire & carrier
- tail lights
- sound bar
- rear seat belts
- roll bar padding
- side steps

You can see all of the pics I have so far here: http://s3.photobucket.com/albums/y61...JK8%20Project/

Love the look of the JK8s. I'll be following this one for sure. Good luck with the build. Something tells me if I were building it to sell, I might have changed my mind by the end of things...

Is it true that they come without any interior trim to finish it up? Great project and I hope you post lots of pics.
