if this ends up as a production jeep I'm sure they will find some buyers.
this thing is badazz!

Do everything with a positive attitude, it won't always work but you'll piss enough people off to make it worthwhile.

the voices aren't real but they sure have good ideas.

Over the years how many of the Mopar concept builds have actually been put into production? Don't hold your breath.

How's the articulation with 37" tires on the stock suspension? I noticed that they only drove that thing over fairly flat terrain. Looks to be a show truck.

Personally I rather have the Sand trooper or the Recon concepts turned in to production vehicles.

yeah, i saw this a while back and thought the chopped top was something we can expect in future wranglers to make them more aerodynamic, thus granting them better gas mileage and allowing it to retain the jeep look -or whats left of it.

two things i noticed about the impractical monstrosity:
1. the front driver side tire is practically hitting the bumper, so i bet if you're driving down the road and you take a turn and hit a pot whole you'll scrape the bumper
2. at the 2:20 second you can see a red suv driving down the road, so you can tell they didn't drive it out to the middle of nowhere to film this, rather just pull over along the side of the high way.

Ha! Maybe that's why they never show it making any real turns. I suspect the front locker is there to power through it own bumper while parallel parking.

Took every ounce of my being to stay awake through that. Dude's voice was about to put me to sleep, let's not even get into the uneventfulness of the video as a whole.

maybe, but i don't think so as it was going too fast in comparison to video of the trail hawk.

Personally I would rather they put a steel top on the JK 4 door to keep mom and the rug rats safe at the mall, drop the 2 door shorter wheelbase, and call the result a Cherokee or a Comanche or whatever and then give us the TJ back and call it what it was and is, THE Wrangler!

With enough interest, the top could definitely make an appearance in furture models.
I think Jeep is (and should be) looking at learning from the Stitch concept the most. Less weight will improve performance, handling, and fuel economy.

As for bringing back the TJ; once you added all the modern safety requirements people would ***** that the front end is too long, the rear end is too long, the hood is too high, it's too heavy, it's too slow, etc..., personally I'll take the JK.
