Autotrader Find: 2000 Jeep Wrangler 4-Door Conversion With a V8

Here’s something you don’t see every day: a 2000 Jeep Wrangler, from the SUV’s "TJ" generation, that’s been stretched into a 4-door model. Jeep didn’t make a 4-door Wrangler until the "JK" generation, which came out in 2007 — so this is a pretty impressive upgrade, likely done well before the 4-door JK ever came out.

According to the ad, this conversion from 2-door Wrangler to a 4-door Wrangler was done by Tennessee Custom Vehicles, and the pictures show that there’s a significant stretch (reportedly 30 inches, according to the ad), along with a small pair of rear doors added behind the front doors. The conversion is quite nice and looks almost factory, save for the fact that the factory would likely add larger rear doors for easier entry and exit.

Impressively, this Wrangler boasts some other upgrades beyond just the stretched body and the extra doors. More doors means more length, which is worse for off-roading — so it’s been lifted to compensate. There’s also the fact that this Wrangler has a third-row seat, which is something Jeep has still not done with the Wrangler — and that means this SUV can likely hold six or seven people.

But the best upgrade (aside from the stretch) is unquestionably under the hood: more length means it’ll need more power, and so this Wrangler is powered by a 5.3-liter Chevy V8 — a big motor that will seriously motivate this Wrangler for added performance on or off road.

If you’re interested, this Wrangler is offered by Premier Motorcars of Tallahassee for $22,988, which is a pretty good bargain considering the V8, the third row and the stretch all must’ve cost a lot more than that to install — although in today’s world of the JK Wrangler, demand is surely not as high for conversions like this. Still, it’s a fun conversation piece — and a Jeep nobody else will have.
