The placeholder...

Mopar offers a conversion kit, as man of you know, that acts as a placeholder till the real deal comes to market. For those that haven't been in the loop ever since the kit came out, here's an extreme representation of what some have been up to with them:

Always wanted to get one and just never got serious.

Fortunately we should still see some good interest in these even with the Wrangler Truck on the market. Cost being one of the reasons.

Yeah tell me about it. I have a few buddies that offroad and they wouldn't care to wait for the market to be at a good state to then get into tailoring a new Jeep for offroad conditions... rather get in right now with what's around.

Modding a regular Jeep into a pickup is going to cost a lot. Of course there are enthusiasts out there who are willing to install the necessary kits and everything but for those who don't have the same funds, the Jeep Wrangler Pickup is a great option once it's out. Would like for to be similar to the Red Jacket Edition but that's not going to happen.

Well it's a good platform for those looking for aftermarket support and a lower barrier to entry over the long term, parts will be cheaper (replacement parts) the list goes on.

Going to be pros and cons to it depending on what you're looking for and looking to do.
