Default J8 VS the J7

As I am patiently waiting on pictures from Moab, Mopar has apparently shown off the J7. From what I have read, it is a stripped-down Rubicon with no-frills such as carpet, radio, nice wheels, and the like.

Additionally, it has what appears to be the J8 tailgate, "helicopter" hooks, and front bumper.

I am sure the frame is not the same as the HD truck J8 frame but who can add some insight as to if this will be a production Jeep for less $$ or a one off for the safari?

This is just a concept vehicle to show you what could be done. It will more than likely never be produced.

Its a great concept, but the real issue, is that most people would see it as a lower cost option, but in reality there wasn't any real cost savings, in fact with the J8 parts it would be more expensive to make. I wouldn't hold out for a J7, but maybe it does hint at a de-contented wrangler someday.
