Jk8

Has anyone had the kit installed for awhile? I'm wondering how they hold up like as a daily driver. Do they leak? Stuff like that.

Just buy a small truck if that's what you really want.

There have been quite a few updates to the jk8 kit from mopar...mostly because they all leak. I would look at the aev brute options.

I see JK8 on base all the time and wonder how he likes it. If he bought it where I am guessing, then about $60k for it. I just saw a white rubicon 4 dr AEV brute brand new on a car hauler last saturday pulling into a truck stop in OKC. I liked the AEV better, but not sure on cost and definately more difficult install.

Wow, they really chop the roll bars off the truck modified ones?

I'm guessing nobody takes those off road then?

There is a blue one of these running around where I live. Never in a spot where the guy is stopped and I can ask him about it though. Looks really cool, not lifted like the one in pics here, just Wrangler S wheels.

Roll bars are modified, they're still there.

I would like to the AEV Brute but it is an expensive package on top of the price of the vehicle.
