Wonder how this ended up for sale. Interesting that the details describe it as "being sent to the hot rod shop" rather than disclosing that it was MOPAR's concept team that built this Jeep.

They sell most of their concepts as long as they are not preproduction. The preproduction ones get crushed (they are required to).

I am not sure if this one was actually built by Mopar. Many of the concepts are actually built by other shops. Such as the green Wagoneer from a few years back.

Looking closer, this isn’t the chief concept. It’s just a chief edition JKU.

This is the real one:

Ummm, they better put that into production. I’d love to drag more jeeps home with that!

I was actually hoping they would release an aftermarket version of that grill and hood, because I would hands down buy it immediately for my chief blue JK.

But all we got was the ugly version of the nu-kiser grill that leaves this ugly 6" gap between the grill and frame.

When the rhino conversion kit came out for the newer wrangler, I was seriously tempted to snag a newer wrangler and do the conversion. I do like the retro vibe on these newer jeeps, too.

75K? That's a JKU with a fiberglass front body kit right? The pricing is ridiculous.

Outside of them claiming that its custom painted (thats a factory chief edition JK), it does have a lot of parts that would raise the price over the standard $35k that it would be worth otherwise being that it has upgraded axles (D44/D60) and some other items. Although kind of odd to keep the stock wheels.

My guess is they bought this Jeep stock (used), did a bunch of mods, and are now trying to sell it for what they put into it, which is tough to do.
