I wouldn't call a VW Jetta or a BMW 3-Series smelly or Eurotrash. Hell, those are two bad-*** cars right there! My Wrangler's trashier and smellier then either of them.
I mean, I like it, but still.
Anyways, T-Bird, a thought occurred, regarding your desire for a chassis-cab Wrangler.
People have seen J8 testing mules running around with Jeep badges on it-not AEV ones, because the AEV ones are completely debadged.
Land Rover, which offers the Defender as a chassis cab and has a decent chunk of the light commercial vehicle market, is pussif-er, reworking the Defender to a suspension system closer to that of the LR3. That'll likely kill it competition in the commercial market.
Fiat wants to make Jeep their big global brand.
Fiat wants to make more Wrangler derivatives.
The J8 features rear leaf springs and Dana 60 axels.
Jeep is talking to the US Army to see if there's any interest here in the J8.
The J8's engine is obviously NA-spec'd now (It uses the same 2.8L diesel)
It's not a hard leap to see how it could be offered as a chassis cab vehicle for use by military and civilian applications...
