Not suppose to be a joke. I was just saying I heard that they were cutting jobs, how can they justify making this "special" vehicle.

I would much rather have a power wagon on 35"s and a cummins.

I'm forever grateful to Speedycat and RnEmOvr for their generosity

I'd be interested if it truly was a Baja focussed truck...

Less interested if it's diesel. I know you guys in the states want diesel but we just don't have suitable fuel quality here.


I'm also keen to see Dodge put out a new PowerWagon again with the SFA.

My thoughts are that the new F150 was a bit of a dissapointment and they're possibly looking for a quick-fix.

It's just going to be a really nice F-150. The Lincoln Mark LT is no more and this is it's replacement.

Because they are a business that needs to design and sell new products to make profit. How does it follow logically that if a company is laying some people off that all new design work should end until the 'mourning period' is over? Get real, it is a business. Leave emotion out of it.
