Future FSJ/Comanche photoshop

Here's a nice photoshop that I found on another forum of the 2011 GC into a pickup.



Marching or fighting, it all pays the same.

I like it. It almost has the same angles as a regular cab tundra. I think the Commander would've made a tougher starting point tho,

Nice to see a GC pickup truck even on picture only. The body style is aggressive yet nice!

It looks too much like a Toyota Tundra. Not that that's necessarily a bad thing, the Tundra is a fantastic truck, but it needs more of a squared-off front end.

Too cookie cutter for my taste. I had an 86 Comanche and put 150k on it with no real problems.

Here are a couple of creations by a member of allpar.com. The Commander was the starting point for these designs. Since the new Ram has a forward slant to the front end I think returning to a forward slant with future full size Jeep designs would be great.




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

Like to see one made from a 4 door unlimited, that is an unlimited 4 door with a 5 Ft truck bed behind the rear seat , with big axles and diesel engine .

Do you think someone would want to buy it ?

On allpar.com there is a thread about the future of the Dodge Dakota. It branched off into talking about future pickups in general. One person mentioned how a Sterling pick up design could easily be made into a Jeep pickup.


Quote:
Now the point of all this mess is that there were new Sterlings designed to compliment the upcoming Dodge HD's, but they will now never go into production.....HOWEVER......

An interesting possibility exists, in that you COULD combine the following parts to make an exclusive, modern day, Honcho for Jeep....

1. Standard cab with low line Sterling commercial interior. This means no Club cab, no Quad Cab, no Crew Cab and bench seat with rubber floor mats (the electrical system is already water resistent) to be able to hose the inside out like a Wrangler. No radio options (commercial buyers want to use Gamber Johnson in-dash mounts for their Motorolas), just a prewire kit.

2. Ram Power Wagon suspension, wheels, and tires. Optional dead front axle for a 4x2 driveline.

3. 6 foot box on short rear frame section (the frame is multiple pieces, so the only new part is the rear frame rails ). Fuel tank comes directly from the light duty Dodge.

4. Jeep specific front fenders, hood, headlamps, grille, and core support...to look similar to suz's Wagoneer idea in the photo section of Allpar.

5. Rating as 3/4 ton only in both 4x2 and 4x4 combinations. This would allow the Cummins to also be a Jeep engine.

6. Only transmission options would be HD Aisin auto or HD 6 speed manual with extra clutch plate (dual disc)...shared HD upgrade with the HD Dodges.

This change should be simple enough to replace all the Sterlings (actually easier to build since less changes to the Dodge) and cost around $75 million, or about half the original Sterling efforts.
Point number 4 refers to the front end look of this photochop:

I used to have a '87 J20 Jeep pickup and I loved the thing, even if it did get 5mpg. I already told my wife that if Jeep come out with a full sized pickup, I have to have it.
