    Question Would You Still Want a Jeep Wrangler Truck IF...

    So, I was looking at a poll that Allpar did a little over a week ago and in it, they asked almost 1,000 of the readers what vehicle from Chrysler they were most looking forward to seeing. And, I suppose it should be no surprise that a Jeep Wrangler based pick-up came out on top (but just by a hair over a new Chrysler minivan) but I'm wondering, would you still be interested in one IF it looked like what we're expecting to see with the all new JL Wrangler styling?

    I took some liberties with Susan Rand's very nice rendering and modified it a bit so that I could give myself an idea of what a JL Wrangler pick-up could look like.

    What do you think?

    Looks like the one sitting in my driveway.

    I like it, but again it looks like the JK.

    I would rather see a drastic change in the next model year jeep. Like the change we seen from TJ to JK.

    It has a little too much front bumper... But then again, without the front bumper it looks just like our JK's so I agree with piginajeep. It needs more changing up.

    First off Eddy, I think you did a great job in your rendering of a rendering. However..

    That looks just plain ugly. Reminds of the failed El Camino's of our time, something which the Australians continue to hold onto.

    Besides, would the handling suffer on slick and snowy roads with the reduced weight in the back?

    And from a customer's perspective, if I wanted a truck.. I would just buy a truck. Am I missing something here?

    Just not a big enough difference, if anything they should just say it's the 2018 JK...

    I'm also with piginajeep I want to see a big change, not a few modifications

    I think doing the truck as a single row only is a mistake.

    The 4 door JK is the sweet spot for wheel base. Stretching the frame longer to accommodate 4 doors will make the Jeep truck a little long for trails.

    If it remains the same length with 4 doors the bed will be useless. It's damn near useless on my JK8. Perhaps a little longer from to make crew cab like the Dakotas or Rangers had with jumper seats might fit the bill.

    If it has independant front suspension, you may as well buy a Colorado.

    There is simply no market for a two seater pick up anymore. Maybe if they could make it a crew or extra cab with a somewhat decent sized bed, and a removable top ,it might sell.
