I honestly think it'd sell pretty well if they made it. Of course, they'd probably have to get rid of wood trim, but the front end looks fantastic. And if they put a high end interior on it, thatd be even better

I love this thing. I think it would be great if Jeep built something like this. Granted not everyone would like the woodgrain option, but the general design is fantastic. Who would have thought that a classic Cherokee front clip could look so good on a modern Commander. I'd be curious to see what it looked like without the wood trim and with some modern style wheels. Might just make the doubters believers.

Looks like a Commander with Woodgrain paneling... I'd buy one for sure. God knows we need another full size road master Jeep

These are all from suzq044, a member of Allpar. http://www.allpar.com/

First three are obviously based on the Commander. A two door Cherokee, a J10 and a 4 door Wagoneer. More modern wheels and no wood grain.







These designs for a full size Jeep pickup are based off the Dodge Ram.

The guy does good work at photo chop. I don't care for either Dodge truck based Jeep. But I do like the Commander based units. The only suggestion I would make is to raise the roofline by about 2 inches. The old style front clip looks a little too big on them. I think they need a taller windshield and rooflilne to bring things into proportion.

I honestly don't know if it is a he or she. I do know that a lot of discussion/learning has been going on there over what is actually possible to build versus just drawing anything a person can think up. Cost, what can and can't be changed using an existing platform, etc. Raising the roof height and still maintaining structural integrity and all that engineering stuff I don't even pretend to understand may not be possible.

Aw c'mon now. No need to let reality get it the way. Your right though, there are a lot more restrictions on an actually vehicle than on a drawing board. Raising the roof would definetly be one of them. Its my understanding that the roof line is one of the most expensive things to change. Because it is the supporting structure. But just changing the front clip like the illustrator did would be easy. You see car companies do that every couple of years. I'd still love to see it done. Even if it is only the front clip. Actually what I would rather see done is a completely new Commander that is more directly inspired by the old Cherokee/Wagoneer. In this day and age where the retro look is the big thing I think a retro Wagoner with 3 row seating would be a great.

X2! Though it's just my personal taste, and truly retro, would be the 'Ol Gladiator style front panel on it instead. I'd like to make a request and have someone photochop that version. Anyone?

i only like the 4 door Ram based truck. te rest are a little too retro for me... but a jeep truck would kick butt! Even better would be a 4x4 Hybrid system, solid axles and, lots of accessory storage in the bed pannels. yeah that'd be nice!

I'd love to see a Jeep Pick up, but without the 3.8 minivan engine, and all the other junk on the current JK's.

Have a V-8 as an option, but bring back the 4.0 inline 6-cyl, keep the 6-speed manual trans., and a nice transfer case, 44's as for the axles, with lockers.

Something like the Brute Conversion, but better.

But, it will never happen. Jeep has gone to ****, since the 06' models. ( THE YJ YEARS SUCK ALOT TO, THANKS TO LEE IAKOKA )

Yes, I do own a YJ, and it sucks!!!!!!!!

Just my $0.02 on this matter.

Seems like every other factory vehicle is a piece a **** too.

HMMMM, sounds like our Government!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! !!!!!

For the 983507843957348925845394th time, the I6 isn't coming back due to EPA regs.

Not just EPA regs. Even an all new emission legal inline 6 would be unlikely since crash standards now mandate more space in front of the engine. A long I6 would be harder to package than a V6 or V8.
