      Thanks Mike! I hadn't seen that video in the bigger size!

      Such an awesome day out there, I look forward to doing it again, sometime down the road.

      • just noticed the j8 sport bar / roll bar has the rounded bend of a 2-door model not the slanted bend of a JKUR for all of you hobbyists thinking about recreating one.

          Mine is fairly similar, though the cross bar is right at the very back, on the peak of the curves to keep it out of the way as much as possible.

          It's a great novelty to stand up and walk around in the back when the roof is popped open.

                  • 2016 JKUR w/ modified JK8 kit (but it is not a mopar jk8 kit). Will run with j8 style softtop. Built by RUBITRUX in Boone, NC (ask for Jesse).

                          not a j8 but maybe a cousin to it. minus the diesel, bumpers, rear tail gate, roll bar, wheels/tires, accessories like A/C, leaf springs, etc...

                            • This is one of the most pratical conversions I've seen. Tons of storage space and functionality and it looks factory. I bet it rides better than a j8! Pretty much fills in all the issues I have with my LJ; more space, better ride, more aftermarket support.

                              • Since the j8 isn't available to consumers we have to innovate a bit. The back seat, which rarely gets used but is always in the way of loading boards and dirty mtb bikes, is now out of the way and there is a nice flat floor to gunk up with dirt and gear. This kit does not require removal of side panels and all the rivets/welds so the structure is still stock.

                                took some ideas from here too:
