15 Minutes of Fame for Red Jacket JK8

This particular candy apple red JK8 conversion seems to be appearing everywhere lately.  The shiny red candy-like truck has appeared in the expected places (Pickuptruck.com) as well as some unusual ones (Jay Leno’s Garage).

Apparent in the video is Jay’s obvious lack of familiarity with Jeeps and off-road tech in general.  However, I’ll give him a pass, because you can’t question his level of historic/performance automotive knowledge and dedication.  I also didn’t realize he had the very cool website dedicated to his auto collection and personal garage.  Definitely worth a browser bookmark.

Overall, great exposure for VWerks and the JK8 in general as interest builds around the possibility of a “Scramber” type vehicle.
