i am in the market for a new to me jeep wrangler, when i came across a good deal. A 2000 sport with low miles and a fair price. Now the bad news; it has that UGLY hummer conversion kit on it. Does anyone know anything about these kits. Basically what will it take for me to convert this landrunner back to a JEEP. Is it only cosmetic; meaning just get new fender flares and new grill or will i have to modify more than that? thanks ahead of time
Sometimes, good deals are just easy to pass up....and this is one of them. Even if there was a kit you could apply to bring this back to "Jeep" status, the deal probably wouldn't sound too good then.
Pass on it...too many other nice looking jeeps around to be messing with that thing.
At some point during jeep ownership, you will BUST A NUT!!!
Ok, I normally don't comment negatively about mods people have made etc. since everyone has their own tastes etc... but I just could not let this pass.
That has got to be the worst abortion of a Jeep I have ever seen. I even prefer the ones in the other threads that have the huge ridiculous rims on them etc. over that - at least those can be reverted much more easily. I honestly just don't know what would cloud someone's thinking so much that they would think that kit was a good idea. Even on dope I would think that was ugly.
I would avoid that thing like the plague itself. I think just looking at it I have lost at least 30 IQ points
All that being said, if anyone who reads my comment on it is offended because they actually like it - Well, I'm sorry for offending you. We obviously have VERY VERY different thoughts on what a Jeep should be.
I just threw up a little in the back of my mouth...

wow thats bad. the only conversion kit that i like for the jeep is the aev kit. i dont know how much i like the brute kit but i do really like the highline fender kit which is the front end on the brute kit. that might actually make it onto my jeep.
