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

I like it, i would like to see it raised up a little more, i hate the way the commander looks low and unlevel.

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 .
