Factory JK-8?

Wonder if Jeep will ever market a factory-built JK-8.

At the current time I lust after a 2-door Wrangler, having absolutely no need for an Unlimited, or even a back seat for that matter. But sometimes I need to haul the occasional small, dirty stuff (engine blocks, bags of mulch, etc.), for which the JK-8 would be perfect.

The problem with the current conversion to the JK-8 is you have to buy an Unlimited and discard a good chunk of the vehicle. Which is stupid. And ridiculously expensive to say the least.

Jeep, are you listening??? Build them in the same trim levels as the Wranglers and price them between the 2- and 4-door (preferably closer to the 2-door due to reduced interior parts content) and you have me.
