Mopar's Wrangler Pickup conversion kit - yay or nay?

From a resale value point of view, is it advisable to convert a 4dr JK wrangler to a 2dr pickup? or in general, is this conversion recommended? Anyone have any insights or work for chrysler that can hook me up with a kit?

We have certified people that can do this conversion in house. and I myself have studied the install procedures for the past couple of days, and it seems very straightforward. So cost is not a factor here.

But I just want people's opinions, yay or nay? car will be predominantly in the lower mainland/Richmond area. will this still need vehicle inspection afterwards?

So yeah, about the jeep.
It's a cool idea. As for resale, if you can keep the vehicle clean and well maintained it could probably fetch equal to or more than a stock one would. I like the conversion and would consider buying one if it came up for Sale.

No vehicle inspection needed. Unless you got pulled over and given a box 1.

Why? Because it's blasphemous? or Because it's flipping sweet?

Also stupid analogy is stupid. You'd lose your shit? Like you keep your shits in a box? and then you lost that box?

Or like you would lose your shit out of your rectum? In which case shitting yourself is generally a medical concern, you should probably seek a doctors help, and some adult diapers...

Sidenote this a variant of this was on Jay Leno's Garage:

I'd let someone give me one in a heartbeat. If they could toss an old 4runner style roll bar, and backseat i'd buy one too!

I'd lose my shit for the customness of it. Is it awesome? No. Is it useful? No. Is it worse than anything mm design or gululu approved? No.

But it is a cool custom concept on an otherwise poorly built, outdated and ugly vehicle. Just like the hummer h2t. It is absolutely useless, still ugly and horrendously built and designed. Still cool when I see one though

Actually not trying to funny, just a stupid expression people say every day without actually realizing how dumb it is.

Added to the fact that like I alluded to, when someone says it, you have no idea why the reasoning for what they are saying. Compared to other hyperbolic statements "lose my shit" is on the very low end of descriptive, whereas generally when trying to make statements like that you are trying to make a very descriptive point. So basically it fails in all regards.

Life gets way harder than dealing with phrases you don't like. If you can't just ignore em, make like a tree and fuck off

I got a Trailer Park Boys vibe. Worst case Ontario they got it from that movie. What comes around is all around.

turns out they stopped making the kit a year ago. probably has to do with the upcoming 2017 jeep pick up. re-using the same mold, just guessing here.

sucks bummer cuz i have a candidate for this project.

Thanks Gululu888! I googled it and you right! This is one of the first vehicle's id even think about buying new. Rumours of a diesel power plant to match?

I'll still probably wait for a years worth of depreciation, but man this is exciting. Exactly what i've been waiting for. The rumours US pricing starting at 40k though. Ugh.
