Has anyone seen the woodland kit from Legacy Coach Workd? They are developing a body kit for new wranglers to make them look like a waggy.

Wrap your minds around that.

Yeah, I have talked to the guy online before. To my knowledge there has not been one completed yet. He has a partially finished one.

I think the idea of it is cool. You get a fully modern vehicle with the good looks of a waggy. But personally I would prefer just to have the front clip conversion that another company has.

I agree with stuka. I think it's neat and would love to see some running around.

Love the idea of it. But it will cost a fortune! Easily doubling the cost of a used JKU. I love the other gladiator style front clip conversion though.

I would personally like it a bit more if they didn’t run the trim around the huge jeep door hinges but found a way to just blend them in with the wood. I can’t help but think of what I could do with my wagoneer with the 20k it would take for the entry level kit.

I agree but Idunno what they could have done differently. The hinges on top of the wood without the trim might not look any better.

I'd like to see a pic without the shelf paper.

Would it still be called Woodland if you omit the wood crate? :o Maybe it could be Playland like at McDonalds? 8-)

They also offer "restomods" where they take a GW and put it on a wrangler chassis and power.
I've been driving mine, wonder if they have yet...

FSJ body on a different frame/powertrain. The pics show it under construction but they dont show any completed.

Pretty neat. But it seems like if you wanted Wagoneer looks with modern technology, you'd be better off updating an actual Wagoneer. I imagine it would be cheaper as well.
