Patent: Mopar pickup kit

by David Zatz on

A patent application filed by Chrysler at the end of 2012 appears to reveal details of how Mopar’s kit converts a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited into a Jeep Scrambler pickup.

This new body system was credited to Keith Montone, Steven Houtman, Anthony Cavallo, (Mopar chief) Pietro Gorlier, and James Sassorossi.  The conversion was used to change a four-door utility into a pickup, replacing the rear doors by panels for the bed; the kid also has a bed floor assembly, bulkhead assembly, and roof assembly which isolates the cabin from the bed.

Patent 8,733,826 may prove to be interesting, if difficult, reading for those curious as to how exactly Mopar’s pickup conversion kit works; it is cheaper and easier than actually buying and installing the kit, which sells for nearly $6,000. An AEV Brute kit runs to around $9,000.
