Here at Murchison's we offer 3 different Conversion packages. The Mopar JK-8, the AEV TJ Brute, and our own Murchison JK Overland.
We've completed 5 JK-8 conversions so far right here at our workshop in Brendale. They are all in house conversions which we take seriously – attention to detail is everything when converting and we’ve come up with a lot of small but necessary improvements to the conversion process and the fit out itself to ensure that the final product is the best it can be.
JK-8 Conversion Kits are a genuine Mopar Product which we supply, convert and compliance with QLD Transport. This process requires an engineering pre approval in writing from QLD Transport which we as a conversion company have already obtained. Compliancing is included in the conversion price.
JK-8’s are a ‘style side’ ute conversion that converts a 4dr JK Unlimited to a 2dr ‘extra cab’. It is an extensive conversion that takes between 4-6 weeks to perform successfully without being rushed.
Conversion Prices start at $15,000 for a turn-key package including the Mopar Kit itself however there are a few improvement recommendations we would suggest upon ordering. Please contact us for more info. If you’re considering a JK8 conversion and want to put the questions aside give us a call.
• The conversion does not change GVM or Towing Capacity.
• The conversion does reduce the overall weight of the vehicle significantly
• The vehicle MUST be registered before the conversion process starts
• It is advisable to lift the front end of the vehicle approx 1” to match the rear once converted
• The vehicle is re registered as a 2dr once converted
