Jeep Wrangler JK-8 Independence by Mopar Unveiled
text size: A- A+
Aside from the Jeep Wrangler Pork Chop we brought to your attention earlier today, Mopar has also introduced the Jeep Wrangler JK-8 Independence pick-up truck ahead of its presentation at the aforementioned event.
Based on a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, the vehicle’s bed length is 50 inches and the width between wheel wells is 44 inches. The team created body panels to cover the second-row entrance and removed all of the interior parts behind the front seats—transforming the vehicle into a two-seater with just enough room for gear inside, and a pickup style bed to be used for outside cargo.
A fresh coat of yellow paint and Mopar's off-road bumpers for the front and rear were used along with a new fuel door and slush mats.
The JK-8 kit includes bed floor, inner/outer body panels, half hard top (works with Freedom Top panels), and a new bulkhead.
“Taking cues from the popular Jeep Scrambler CJ-8 from the 1980's, Mopar has designed a kit for do-it-yourselfers that converts a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited into a pickup truck,” a company statement reads.
