Mopar in the US has just announced a new Jeep Wrangler JK8 Independence pack which transforms the Wrangler into a pick-up. The special conversion pack was recently revealed at the 45th Annual Moab Jeep Safari.
A team of Mopar representatives at the event demonstrated the conversion by taking one normal Jeep Wrangler and transforming it into a ute in around one hour. Here we see a video of the demonstration in fast forward.
Anyone can now buy the conversion kit for their respective Wrangler and apply it in one weekend. Apparently it does require some welding so non technical-minded enthusiasts are encouraged to get a professional hand.
The conversion uses new panels and side trimmings which completely conceal the ute tray and the cabin. A new roof and panel behind the seats is also put it. The tray is 1.27 metres in length and 1.1 metres in width.
Mopar now sells the kit for $US5499 (around $5137).
