It makes a heck of a lot of sense, though I'd rather see it in a two door with a shorter wheelbase.

As I understand it Jeep has wanted to do a pickup again for a long time, but Dodge/Ram sees it as encroaching on their turf at Chrysler.

I like that!

I always loved the old 70's Comanche/Gladiator trucks, especially the stepside version.  :cool

This is the 2016 Gladiator concept, I think it would be perfect if they hat put the Gladiator frontend on it like the Crew Chief.

yeah, the Gladiators were pretty sweet looking rigs.  This was a concept last year i think.

I had the chance to buy a Comanche for 200 bucks once.  When I lived in Ashville, VA some years ago.  Damn if I don't regret not buying it.

I should have bought a J10 twenty years ago.  Still wish I had.

  If they look cool semi-old-school like that.......I'll definitely look into it.

   If it looks like another tundra/Silverado/ram/vanilla curvy lined pickup I'll pass.

This is linked to from my original article:

The pic at the top looks an awful lot like what could be hidden under the confusowraps on the test vehicle...

Dodge/Chrysler/Jeep/Whoever owns them this week has the best looking vehicles out for the last 10 years or so.  But I don't trust their engineering... Maybe I will think about buying one in ten years or so.  Do look cool as hell though.

I'll believe it when I see it.   These concepts often look cool, but when the production model comes out it is a complete pile of s___.
