Honestly, I'm pretty sure that since Jeep stopped selling the pickup-esque CJ-8, everyone has been asking for it back. It was a step in the right director for Jeep to offer a factory pickup conversion for the Wrangler Unlimited. They even paid homage to the older model by naming it the JK-8 conversion, and now dealerships and aftermarket companies are buying brand new Jeep's, installing the JK-8 kit, and selling them for a healthy profit. This vehicle started it's life as a basic sport edition, and has been fitted with a slew of genuine Mopar accessories, including a 4-inch lift, and AEV wheels wrapped in ~35 inch rubber. For $45,000, it's not cheap, but the vehicle does only have 129 listed miles and these modifications certainly aren't cheap!
Here's what the seller had to say about the vehicle:
