MOPAR JK-8 JEEP TOP

For years loyal Jeep fans have been awaiting a truck version of the Wrangler. Mopar, the performance parts division of Chrysler, decided to do just that and created a Jeep truck conversion kit. The kit can be retrofitted on any 2011 or newer Jeep either by a dealer, customization shop, or by the end user.

 

Tangent’s role in the kit project was to reproduce the hard top for the passenger compartment utilizing the same assembly technique as the OEM factory hard top. It also needed to be compatible with the factory Freedom tops that were also packaged with the kit. Working with Mopar engineering, Tangent designers were able to obtain the OEM top CAD data and use it as a starting point for generating the new top. Tangent was able to create the new top Class A CAD data and work with the supplier to make sure it was manufactured to the exact OEM specifications.
