Maybe I'm being nit-picky but it would annoy the crap out of me to have the 4-window power switch in a JK-8 conversion. I would think for 49k they could have ordered a 2 window switch and put it in. It is a cool looking ride though!

Not a fan of the quality for costs. As others have said some minor things have been missed and for just shy of 50k they shouldn't have been.

Doesnt make sense to put that on a sport package and not a rubicon, then leave it stock height, Oh and then ask $49 grand. At least the other ones I have seen have started as a Rubi and had upgrades.

That's such a waste of that much money. I saw one in February right before I bought my JK that was the same price but was a Rubicon and had all AEV mods. 2.5" lift, 35's, front and rear AEV bumpers with Warn winch on the front. Now that one would be closer to being worth $49k but I still wouldn't pay that much for it

If I need a pick up it will be a 4dr Hemi Ram. I don't even like the way it looks never mind paying over 48k for it. But, some will. I guess it's always good to have a choice.

Don't listen to them, haha. Besides, it's only money and it was YOUR money. I think it looks cool.

Jeeze... for $48k I could get a brand new Dodge Ram 2500 with the cummins engine... Not even close to worth that...

However I would be willing to pay close to $50k for that blue FC concept... mmmm...

Funny, the less expensive it is, the more I find it attractive, haha.

Can that price possibly be correct?

That's where I bought my jeep. Believe me if it was that price I would've jumped all over it! It was there when I bought mine and it is nice but for the money I would buy a power wagon.

They're asking just shy of $50k.

No kidding, I just noticed one of my local dealers has one in stock and they want $51K for it and it's a Sport. Basically you're paying $15000 over parts cost (if the kit really is $5K) for a 31K Sport Unlimited with a 5K option. That's just silly.
