JK-8 Jeep Wrangler Pickup by Mopar

Jeep has yet to provide us with a pickup version since the Comanche truck that ended its solo reign in 1992. However, thanks to the conversion-geniuses over at Chrysler and Mopar, the dry spell is finally over!

The JK-8 Jeep Wrangler Pickup conversion kit by Mopar is the perfect combination of a Jeep's classicly rugged style with the extra advantage of a truck's practical versatility. The JK-8 kit transforms any 2007-2011 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited into a pickup with a 50 by 44 inch pickup bed. The conversion kit's suggested retail price stands at $5,499, a decent price to pay for a unique Jeep-truck hybrid.

The built-to-order custom kit comes in removable and permanent versions, which is great news for the flip-floppers of the automotive community. While the removable weld-free version can be self-installed in the course of a single weekend, the more heavy-duty permanent version will take anywhere from 12 to 16 hours of body shop work.

What do you think of the Jeep Wrangler Pickup? For all you Jeep purists out there, what do you think about this conversion kit?

Update: Since Mopar announced the new kit, we created our very own! For pictures and a video about the conversion process, click here for the new JK-8 blog post.
