Aftermarket companies makes it so hard to wait for the next gen Wrangler Jl when they come out with custom Wranglers like this Stormtrooper one. Never thought that shade of blue would look so good on a white body but there you have it. Big fan of the bumper and vented hood, gives it that bulky Stormtrooper helmet look.

Voltron Motors was selling it for $59,900 on Ebay, the sale may have ended but the bespoke bodykit is giving me ideas. Also comes with front and rear Fox Racing shocks, a 4-inch lift, Alpine speakers, upgraded navigation system with Apple CarPlay and custom diamond-stitched leather.

That thing does look really mean. Me personally, I could do without the rims but the color scheme is very nice and different from what you would see. I may prefer a more stealthy look with it though as it could make it look a lot more aggressive. Absolutely love the grill swap that adds the "eyelids" to the headlights though.

For $60k, I wouldn't mind buying something like that. But the other part of me wouldn't want to buy it because it's already done.. I'd rather go through a build process although I'm sure it would probably cost more. But it would feel more like mine. Does look real nice though. The wheels aren't my taste but I'm sure if you bought this, you could sell those and buy a set of your preference anyhow.

The blue seats are just over the top, but everything else makes it look unique and I can go for a color scheme like that. $60,000 is not that bad for a bespoke bodykit, but that's a huge price jump from the Jeep Wrangler Sport they used as the build base. If this proves to be popular, Voltron should offer the design in various colors and trims so people can add it to their rubicon and what have you.

Don't like this at all.

Rather put the same money to make it even more hard core of an off roader.
Come time to sell this entirely or even just the parts, it won't be nearly as easy. Personalizing a vehicle too much can have its downsides.

Precisely why the ad is still up and has been relisted because it expired.

But typically, when you go into projects like these, you know it's not going to be easy to sell for one. Secondly, you'll be taking a pretty big hit majority of the time. Thirdly, everyone has different tastes and what you like isn't going to particularly be great for a lot of people.

I've seen guys that have had show cars made before, and didn't even bother trying to sell it. They just have them sitting in their garage for the past 5 years or more.

The company probably took a gamble with the new Star Wars movie coming out and was hoping a die hard fan would be interested. If it doesn't sell, we can probably expect to see it at the next SEMA show before it's put into storage again. When you throw that much money into a build there's going to be some hesitation with taking it off road and using the Wrangler for its intended purpose.

On the bright side, being a Wrangler, there will be someone willing to buy it for the right price, even if that means 1/2 of the asking price. From that point on that same individual might turn it back into some trail hugging JK that looks and acts the part.

Half the asking price is probably what they'd get for it. The people that I think will be super into this are the guys that are just getting into the Wrangler scene. They'll be all excited and want something super different and they'd go for it, but majority of those people won't pay this asking price for it.

Parting it out is probably the best thing to do. Much easier to bring it back to OEM. Right then and there you open yourself up to thousands of buyers instead of a small select group who may not even have the money, but diversifying it positions you very well. Good opportunity to get those wheels or whatever someone might want.
