Oh how we love the Jeep CJ-8. Of all the classic CJ's, the "Scrambler" was one of the coolest. It was certainly one of the shortest-lived, with less than 30,000 produced during the five years between 1981-86. So we probably don't need to explain why we love the "Red Jacket Edition" Jeep Wrangler that recently showed up on Jay Leno's Garage.

A product of VWerks of Adrian, Michigan, the candy apple red Jeep was shown at SEMA last year. The Red Jacket Jeep uses Mopar's JK-8 pickup conversion kit to turn a Wrangler Unlimited into one bad off-roader. VWerks developed the aftermarket kit, which they've installed on the Red Jacket, but that's just the beginning. They've also fitted the Wrangler with a four-inch suspension lift, a one-inch body lift, new rock-crawling bumpers and some monster 40-inch tires.
