New Wrangler pickup or…?

by David Zatz on

The Wrangler is still waiting for its new assembly plant, the 2018s haven’t been shown yet and are still running around under camouflage, and the pickup is supposed to appear a year after the 2018… but what’s this?

Jeep pickup

It looks like a Wrangler pickup, all right, and it doesn’t look like the AEV Brute conversions that have been running around the Detroit area.  Unfortunately, it appears to simply be a standard Jeep Wrangler with Mopar’s JK-8 Pickup Conversion Kit for the 2007-12 Jeep Wrangler.

For $5,500 or so (plus labor), this conversion includes the steel bed and bed-sides, removable fiberglass hardtop, fiberglass bulkhead, and “half hard top” (the nicely done, body-colored extra panel with the half-window behind the front doors). Unwanted body panels don’t have to be cut — the spot welds are drilled out and they fall off.
