It looks like a jeep conversion kit. They have been making various ones for years.

They are made by AEV and for $30,000 to $40,000 you can have your JKU converted to one. They are called the Jeep Brute.

My local dealership had two. One was a 6.4 L Hemi conversion and the other 5.7 L Hemi.
They were both over $100,000 almost $120,000.

So is the standard aev conversion. 40k does not include an engine swap as far as I can tell.

I was talking to an AEV guy at the bantam jeep fest, and they were not very happy with the way topgear treated the brute... I still enjoyed watching the episode lol.

Heres the TJ version. I haven't seen the double cab topless yet. The orange one isn't an AEV jeep but its close enough.

I agree, if you saw the episode the guy was an idiot. He had no business driving an off road vehicle. Looked like he was trying to destroy it.
