Yes, I'm an avid shooter and do a lot of training and classes. I'm definitely down for some trails. I'm in the Kennett Square / West Chester area... Maybe we can do some shooting also. My screen name is the same on all of the forums that I'm on. Your name seems familiar to me also, M4C maybe?

How do those hold up considering they are held on by the light assembly itself? Or are they simply cosmetic?

PaleoDan Really like the look of it and the color as well as your barn/shop in the background - Enjoy!

HollisBT The jk8 is ugly, and I definitely do not want one... /sarcasm

Looks damn good man, I hope one day to transform my jku into the jk8, there is just something about them that is so badass!

So we don't sell direct, so look to your favorite retailer for pricing.

Thanks! I am a tall/big dude and I was a bit worried about space when they were doing the conversion but there is pretty decent space in this set up.

I bought my daughter a 2011 Sahara 2Dr for her birthday in March and we will use that if we need the extra room. If I hadn't already bought her the Sahara it wouldn't have been possible for me to get the JK8. I'm glad I got it for her early as I have been looking and lusting at the JK8's for a year and a half...

Thank you for the warm welcome.

Great idea on the fuel door and one I hadn't even considered. I was planing on tinting as I really like the orange on black look. Its not desperately needed here in PA, but its okay to do some things merely for cosmetics from time to time.
