That



Is


Awesome!

Stock with 36" tires!?!?! They don't look anywhere close to 36's! You would have to run a 40+ to make them look big!

Lovin' it!

I think that is just for cost savings for a working concept

Then you don't understand the reason for this concept. It is new front sheet metal for the J8. Jeep hopes to expand offerings based on the Wrangler when the plant expands and the new Wrangler starts production. Being able to share as many parts as possible and save money is the best way for new vehicles based off the Wrangler to happen.

Sure it would nice for everything to be unique but that will never happen.

I love that they didn't try and put some dumb areodynamic slope on the grille or anything. To me, when you bring back a classic, you shouldn't do anything to make it look too modern. That's awesome, thanks for posting!

I think they ruin the whole thing, the doors make it look like its new jeep and we all know the coolest jeeps are old. The least they could do is get rid of the plastic or add covers to make it match bumpers and styling because I understand the need to cut costs but I'm sure if it ever does make it to the production line it'll be changed up.

Agreed. A pick up based off of the JK should be perfect. It's what made the original Willys pick-up so successful. Not only is it able to bring down costs in terms of design and production, but it means that you have a wider range of replacement parts down the line. Utilitarian style and capability is what made the Jeep what it is. Getting back to those roots will only help the brand.

All I know is that if I spent a bunch of time and money restoring, or just maintaining an actual old Gladiator (hopefully I will someday...), I would hate seeing a ton of these remakes on the road...

The only thing I don't like is the body and bed being incorperated together like a JK8. They should make them seperate.

This, above jeep truck, would take Chrysler in to bankruptcy, if marketed.
