They won't, for a few reasons. One, no suitable platform. The Grand Cherokee/Durango won't really work for a pickup platform, not a traditional one at least (There's a rumour about it being used for a 'lifetstyle' truck, in the vein of the Ridgeline or Explorer Sport Trac, but not quite so silly). The Liberty is moving to a CUV platform.

The Wrangler will likely show up in a pickup version inspired by the Gladiator concept when it's redesigned for 2014/2015-not quite a Comanche, but close.

However, there's another rumour about Dodge releasing an overseas-oriented (But probably build and sold in North America as well) compact truck, a modernized version of the old Dodge Ram 50, to compete with things like the Toyota Hilux and Nissan Navara (Frontier) overseas. It's probably the closest you'll ever get to a Chrysler-built Comanche replacement.

The thing is, there's no market for a direct Comanche replacement. The Ram 50 would be about the same size and shape, and the Wrangler will have the solid-axle'd, off-road oriented underpinnings, but you won't ever see both in a factory-built truck again.

manche would be cool but to see the wrangler go a lil more back to its roots besides "flenders" would be sweet

When I visit my GF I always pass by a red Gladiator what a beautiful pick-up.I got get a picture of it the next time I pass by it. With the way this economy is going and how fuel prices are soaring up, just a stipped down base model with a 6 spd manual 4X4 Diesel would be a great way to go.

I have seen one on a lot in Lexington, Kentucky. The front looks like a wrangler with a bit of an extended cab. I think it is a great looking truck.

I don't think so,It's likely to be built on the Ram 1500 for Jeep,derring the next Ram cycle, just like the old Gladiator was.
