If my dealer had one of these, I would be even more broke then I am today! Man, I would have loved to get that when I purchased my JK!

Looking forward to seeing your build as you go and when finished!

I don't think I appreciated just how much went into this conversion before. How many hours do you think you will be in once you are done?

Maybe Dealers charging $10k for labour on this isn't so crazy...

This clearly needs to be done at the factory. These pics look like the ones at the beginning of the line!

Four Wheeler magazine did a write-up showing a dealer doing the install of a JK8 kit. Some good pictures in it.
