If you're looking for a product that'll at least have a chance in the American market, then the Gladiator should be your choice. Just the look of the NuKiser would turn off MANY American's.

I personally would not mind either of them, but I'll select the Gladiator as it's practical.

Gladiator hands down. I don't like the idea of buying a brand new, that looks old as hell. I mean I like older Jeeps too, I'm a lover, lol. That look of the Nuk takes a few steps back in appeal. (though I will admit do like the simplicity of the back of the Nuk). In terms of performance, since you made up the specs lol... Lets say BOTH of them get a Hemi engine in them.... then what would people pick... the Gladiator getting a smaller engine is unfair, lol.

Unfortunately I can't justify a 2P truck when I have kids.

The kids ALWAYS want to ride in the truck!

nukizer as a work/play truck and the fact that the gladiator appears to have a permanant top. something about a truck based on the wrangler platforum not being able to go topless bothers me.

Yes, because a non-required survey presented on a Jeep related site represents the American opinion.

We are 200% more jeep friendly here then any place on the planet, the interest in such truck seems rather low in comparison . . .

Now yep its true not many know they are talking about it again, But from what i have been told by quiet a few people is they "don't care" most of the people i talk are sick n tired of hearing about this great new truck from jeep that goes No where Most say "build it or shut up about it" i have notice people today don't give a Rip about what "might happen" or what "could happen" . . .

I'm kind of with them until the truck is sitting on lot's ready to be sold Jeep don't have a Pickup truck period end of story . . .

Don't get me wrong, I'm also tired of seeing concept builds and speculation. As you said, Jeep does not have a pickup truck until it's in production and being released.

I probably just misunderstood your post. I thought you meant no one cared nor wanted a Jeep Pickup truck just because of the lack of interest in the poll.

If they build it they'll sell it, even if they chose to produce the most unpopular Jeep pickup concept they would sell more then enough to start cranking out the more popular units and before ya know it they would have a whole jeep pickup line up . . .

They Just have to start building and quit talking

It would be Awesome to see a Pickup variant to each SUV Jeep

it would be neat to see liberty/nitro as a pickup or some of the Grand Cherokees even . . . The commander would make a fine "new J10" type truck . . .
