As a TJ owner I'd like to see two things come from Jeep, the First is a large JKU sized pickup, and the second is this mini wrangler.

I sit in my TJ and think that I could shave off at least 5 inches in width, and I'm 5'11 245 so not the smallest guy around. I also run it without back seats and have found that I'd have no problem with a permanent two seater. So I'd have no problem decreasing the back end by 2 feet. Now the front is interesting as I'd like to have a small diesel, and I'd really like to shave a foot or so off the front however that'd be decided based on engine layout.

So here is where we are at:

Overall length = 119"
Overall width = 61"

Now from a height standpoint, IDC however I do want the same ground clearance that we get in the TJ. I also want solid Axles still and stock dana44's or equivalent. I couldn't see a need for more than 120 HP, but would like say 250 ft lbs of torque. Thats what I want from mini jeep. Hell take a samurai and slap some circle headlights on it and I'd be happy.
Give me a jeep van!

heheh.... no, but my grand daughter loves to ride in it.



Though, just the other day I driving past the local strip joint and a couple of entertainers were arriving for work and watched the CJ go by. As much as I would like to think they were eyeballing the 63 year old coot driving, alas, it's probably the CJ.
