should they build a new Comanche off the Commander?

I think so... my rendition of what a 2007 Comanche LWB would look like.




Bobby

2001 Steel Blue WJ Laredo SA 4x4, 3.5" lift, Apperance Package with factory Laredo Steel Blue cladding/leather
Conferr Roof Basket with custom Randy Ellis Design light cage, WAAG grille guard and Hella lots of 500 lights


2004 Wrangler Sport, 2.5" and 31's, nothing special

If Jeep is going to build a pickup again, they've got to build something close to the Gladiator concept. Otherwise IMO, everyone is going to ask, "Why not the Gladiator?".

With all the buzz on the new JK they won't build any p/u not even the Gladiator... They did that just to show us the new wrangler without actually showing it to us.

Nearly Identical photoshop on page 8 of Jp magazine ( May 06). You will get a different opinion on wheather the gladiator will be made with each forum you read, everybody swears one way or the other. I think a commander truck would be cool but I just dont see it when the commander itself isn't selling too well, tha Gladiator I do see having possibility . I think that the gladiator was similar to the dakota in size and being based on the iconic Jeep style will help sales. I just hope that the features like the canvas sunroof and the folding midgate make it past the bean counters and into production... If they do make it .
