2014 Wrangler JK-8 Conversion
We are building a JK-8 conversion Wrangler for one of our Jeep dealers here in Jersey. They have wanted to build one for some time now but the kit is not that easy to get and then they decided to wait until the '14's came in.

Besides the kit we'll be adding a lift, some 35's with new wheels, leather, and probably a bunch of other things before we're done.

This is most likely going to be a pricey upgrade by the time it hits the showroom floor, but they feel that this part of Jersey has the clientele that has the cash to buy we're more then happy to build it for them.

Here is a few photos of the build...I will post more here and there, or feel free to check our facebook page for more photos.

I hope you dont mind my opinion but A few dealers in my area tried it and they didnt go the distance. They threw the kit on with just some light modding and then wondered why they sat on the lot. If your going go all the way! People want attention getters! The price of the kit and labor already throws it into a more higher end vehicle so you should go for that type of buyer! Your already starting with an awsome color!! Good luck with her!

I agree with you 100%. Without a doubt this truck is only going to appeal to someone that has a good amount of disposable income. Fortunately we're located in one of the richest parts of NJ so hopefully the dealership can sell it. The funny thing is that we bought the kit from another dealership that had hopes of building their own truck, but their body shop said no to the project.

This is a great item for the JK8 (fit in my 2dr conversion also). A sound bar that fits the half top! Worked awesome!

Who makes that?

We generally sand the sound bars smooth and paint them to match the color of the truck.
