2011 Mopar Ram Runner Stage II Kit and Jeep Wrangler JK-8 Independance Pickup Truck

"Moparized" Ram Truck Mopar Ram Runner The available Mopar Ram Runner kit was inspired by high-speed desert off-road racing. The rigors of off-road racing require large tires, additional ground clearance and a sophisticated suspension system capable of withstanding tremendous impact. These features are combined with the proven HEMI 5.7-liter V-8 into a package that is stable at speed and rock-solid in the corners. Inspired by trophy trucks, steel front fenders and rear bed-sides are replaced with fiberglass layered in the Liquid Metal Mopar racing scheme. The high-clearance wheel wells allow tremendous suspension articulation with zero tire-to-body interference.

Ram will become the official vehicle of TORC with the Mopar Ram Runner pacing all of the series' events. Jeep Wrangler JK-8 Independence Taking cues from the popular Jeep Scrambler CJ-8 from the 1980's, Mopar has designed a kit for do-it-yourselfers that converts a Jeep Wrangler Unlimited into a pickup truck. The bed length is 50 inches and the width between wheel wells is 44 inches. The team created body panels to cover the second-row entrance and removed all of the interior parts behind the front seats-transforming the vehicle into a two-seater with just enough room for gear inside, and a pickup style bed to be used for outside cargo. The JK-8 drivetrain is fitted with a Mopar/Dynatrac ProRock 44 front axle and stock Dana 44 rear axle, both spun with 4.88 gears. Linking the axles to the frame is a 4.5-inch long-arm suspension kit and 37-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM2 tires make the connection to the ground. A fresh coat of yellow paint and Mopar's off-road bumpers for the front and rear were utilized along with a new fuel door and slush mats. The JK-8 kit includes bed floor, inner/outer body panels, half hard top (works with Freedom Top panels), and a new bulkhead.

Stuffing 37" BFGoodrich Tires on a Stock Jeep Wrangler JK - NO LIFT (yet)
In this video you will see the struggles as I try to get a set of 37" BF Goodrich Mud Terrain KM2 tires to fit on a 2013 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon or JKU. The idea behind such an odd approach to upgrading an off road rig is to start at the foundation and work my way up. I want to keep the center of gravity on the vehicle as low as possible and the main focus of the build is to fit the awesome 37 inch BFG KM2's. Those have been my favorite tires for as long as I can remember and are one of the most "Go To" tires in the off road industry. So, with a set of G2 1.5" spacers, I get the Jeep on jack stands, pull the old rims and tires off, have the 37's mounted up and commit to drive the Jeep at the end of the day! The biggest problem happens at the rear of the vehicle. The rocker panel guard is too long and must be removed and modified before it can be reinstalled. Then the bottom of the body at the leading edge of the rear wheel well needs to be trimmed, sealed and spray painted. I show the basic steps I took to accomplish this task. So the Jeep now sits on the 37" Mud Terrain tires but there is lots to do. The fenders will need to get modified for more clearance and the rear tire mount will have to be upgraded as well to handle the much larger tire. It was a great one day project and I'm thrilled to have it done. Next up will be G2 gears and chromoly axle upgrades. Then fenders, rear bumper and some off roading of course!
