To the best of my knowledge there are a few Chrysler owned prototypes running around at various suppliers and media outlets and a handful being used underground in mines.

Woah, now, Jeep. Do you want Balrogs? Because this is how we get Balrogs.

The guy that gave me my lights is who put these on the j8's. I just did a little more artistic thinking and built armor around them. If you look close at the rest of the lights you'll see different side markers and head lamps in some of the pics. I'll post some photos of Doug's Jk Sahara with all the lighting he does on the J8 including the head lamps. Theyre sick!

I went by Jankel's stateside office this past fall and snapped a few pics of a J8 they had out front. My understanding is that they supplied the folks at Overland Journal with the one they're demo'ing. This one was also a RHD variant. I was quite impressed. I did notice that they were using old style half doors with new style dash and console. And yes, running on Manufacturer's plates from Michigan.
