Jeep J8 - AKA Storm 3 - plent of pics and off-road test in Israel
 
http://www.jeepolog.com/UserFiles/Im...ive_%20137.jpg

I know you guys would like to get your hands on a J8... Well we did - for a few days at least. At Israel's off-road web magazine, Jeepolog.com, we got to try out a pair of production J8's. and we tried them all over the desert.

here's a link to the article

I know it is utilitarian, but the desert tan/black looks awesome. Thanks for the post.

I like it a lot too....:)

What would be interesting is if JK owners could buy some of the J8 parts (aside from axles) to mod their Jeeps with. :)

SICK. But it could use some larger tires.

I'll take the Storm MK2, but make it a 2 door with a sliding rear window. :drool:

I agree that grille would be great, maybe they could make a J8 with a HEMI so we could own one here they use the same transmission.

you can buy in the U.S.- even with a hemi if you want. But be prepared to drop some serious cash: http://news.pickuptrucks.com/2009/04...an-buyers.html

That would be fun but "PUT A V8 IN 'ER" is why the manufacturers still think we want that instead of diesel options.

Something like my friends '95 Storm Mk1 (YJL)?

Sorry... they made the Mk2 (TJL) only 4 doors, and the Mk3 (J8) also only 4 door versions, although they may built some of the J8 pickup versions which are the ultimate, in my humble opinion...

Something like this '95 Mk1 Storm? Great Jeep. a friend of mine runs this jeep for over 10 years. They don't make them like this anymore... the only problem is that it isn't a 4 door - see, most of these jeeps do serve double duty as daily drivers, so with a family a second set of doors is a must. We also Take quite a few multi-day trips into the relatively close desert, so we like the hauling space of the long wheelbase jeeps.

Good to see Israel is still running Jeeps around the desert.
