Remember the Pork Chop project, where the Mopar Underground removed 850 pounds from a two-door JK? We covered it in Drivelines, Aug. ’11 (“Moab Gets Moparized”). Well, they have taken the concept even further with Stitch. By using industrial fabric for body panels, ditching the stereo and HVAC, and replacing steel components with aluminum, the engineers were able to get the JK down to 3,000 pounds. And that is with a V-6, automatic transmission, solid axles, and coil springs at each corner, and 35-inch Mickey Thompson Baja Claws to retain Stitch’s trail prowess.
