Wow! Very nice jeep. That Lower Forty looks like a mixture of Wrangler and dune buggy.

I want one!

Went to a Jeep Show in Adrian, Mi. on October 3rd and had a chance to park my rig next to the "Lower Forty". That is one sweet Jeep and makes my 1990 YJ look like a dinosaur. My wheels are also 20's but only running 39.5" so my rig would probably be called the "The older not quite forty". The "Lower Forty" looks great in the magazines but 100 times better up close, it is the real deal.

Nice comparison. But can't anyone park between the lines?

1st one- 1989 Cherokee Laredo. 12 great years
2nd one- 2001 Cherokee Limited. Got it before they were gone.

And now I have to ask, what is that on the opposite side of you? TrailHawk? Almost looks like a lowered WJ with a T top, but then again, most things would look lowered next to vehicles rocking 40s

I would have to guess that it's the Trailhawk based on the informational stand that the tire is sitting on. It appears to be on display.

Yes, that is the TrailHawk concept, which is not lowered, it just has high sides and lower roofline. It actually has decent ground clearance, but, as you pointed out, looks dwarfed next to the other rigs.

Hey...I am new to this thread and the Idea of the Lower 40...and I know this is a stupid question but I am going to ask it anyways...so be kind...

But is that lower 40 just a built jeep or are they going to be producing them for purchase.?

The 'Lower Forty" is a Jeep Design Concept vehicle used for the Moab Easter Week and various car shows across the country. Sadly, It is not a Jeep destined for production but rather a design excercise to maintain the "stock" height appearance with the largest tires possible while optimizing Jeep signature styling cues.
