|3JeepBill||I responded to my Jeep dealer's build site ASAP (you can choose only color and that is all). Automatic transmission only. I signed up immediately, sent in a deposit right away. Got a call from dealership moments ago to say TOO LATE; first run completely sold out.|

Still and awfully long pickup for such a awfully short (almost useless) bed length.
Here is the one that is a far better option.
Jeep J6 ConceptJeep J6Image Credit: Jeep
Moving onto something slightly more realistic, we have the Jeep J6. This two-door, standard cab truck is the off-road Jeep Gladiator of our dreams. It doesn't exactly make sense from a sales standpoint to do something like this for the Gladiator, but man does it look the business. Jeep actually used a Wrangler Unlimited chassis for the concept you're looking at here, not the longer Gladiator. Still, with one less row of seats, Jeep was able to give it a 6-foot bed, which is considerably more useful than the Gladiator's 5-foot bed.
The J6 is in reference to the original J Series Jeep pickups, and this particular truck is meant to remind us of the 1978 Honcho that came in Brilliant Blue. Jeep used the stock 3.6-liter V6 to power this truck, but added a bunch of other parts to help on the trail. A 2-inch lift kit, 37-inch tires and 17-inch beadlock wheels should help out in Moab — Jeep says it's considering making the new wheels (about 4 pounds lighter than the wheels it comes with now) a factory option. Add-ons like the front stinger bar, steel tubing in the bed and 10 LED lights are all still conceptual. It's wonderful that Jeep has made this 2-door truck, even if it's going to remain forbidden fruit.

Expedition Portal did a comparo between the Gladiator and a crew cab version of the new Ranger, Colorado, Tacoma and Frontier, and IIRC the Gladiator has the biggest back seat in the segment, although not by a huge margin. I suspect that's got the most to do with trying to reuse as many parts from the JL as possible for cost savings, but either way it's nice.
It's also not as big as everyone thinks. it's got the lowest 'beltline' in the segment as well, and the lowest bed sides, so it looks a lot longer than it is. It's still the longest in segment (218"), but it's not drastically longer (6" longer than the Colorado), and most of that length is in the bumpers.

|kpauley||I saw 4-5 of them today. Didn't get a chance to take a picture though. Looked like some Jeep corp event as I saw a sign on the edge of the road with the Jeep logo pointing down the road. Many covered in mud, one was towing a boat. Jeep owns some land in the area and they do hit the Rubicon Trail quite a bit (nearby) so its not too unusual. There were sightings reported in our local facebook group and they are clearly here for a few days.|

Saw a pair of Gladiators in a local Cadillac MI eatery parking lot. Had manufacture’s plates and look to be ready for sale.Four technicians in each doing final winter trials I suspect.
