Mopar JK-8 Independence pickup kit for Jeep Wrangler now available

The Mopar JK-8 Independence Kit introduced at the Moab Jeep meet in April is now available through your dealer. The kit is designed to convert a Wrangler Unlimited with the full hardtop to a two-door, two-seat pickup with a 50-inch long by 44-inch wide (between the wheel wells) bed. The JK-8 Independence Kit contains all the necessary parts, including the bed floor, inner and outer body panels, half hard top (works with Freedom Top panels), and a new bulkhead.

Estimated price for the kit is $6,000 and Jim Sassorossi, head of Mopar Sales and Marketing, says an expert enthusiast working quickly can do the conversion over a weekend, though most owners will need little longer. It’s also likely that some Jeep dealers will offer a completed conversion.

Thanks to MoparNorm for the tip!
