    Finally...Wrangler based pickup coming.

    Only thing wrong with a wrangler based truck is the lack of towing capacity. And torque. There needs to be another engine option

    Well, IF there is a diesel, then there you go. And these wouldn't compete with full-size trucks anyway. I'm picturing a 4-Door with a roll cage over the pickup bed and a military-style canvas cover/tarp with a roll-up back opening. And having a pickup bed would open up a huge aftermarket opportunity for add-ins and full-on replacements (light RV camper style bed).

    It's going to be over priced. Look how much the JK costs now.

    Not to mention the renegade..

    Oh yeah, IF this were to really happen (and I'm still not convinced of anything that "Automotive News has learned independently"), it'll be way overpriced. That is not to say that people wouldn't pay for it though.

    It will be interesting to see how much more the JL base model Sport will be over the JK. Then add to that a premium for the phantom truck bed, and then another premium for a phantom diesel... I can see a Hard Rock 4-door pickup with diesel topping out around $55-60K.

    I think we're witnessing the beginning of a Jeep truck addiction. What are you up to, like 3 now? 👍

    A JK8 actually put me into my JKU. Drove by the Dealership and they had this Red Hott 2013 JK8 conversion setting out front, we had been discussing a new truck and I flipped a uturn to look at it only to be stunned at the 52k price tag. Used. I think they would sell like hot cakes at a Church breakfast.

    Jeep Truck

    From reading this I am kind of feeling let down. I would have hoped they would take the AEV brute JK and went that way. I guess I am going to be talking with AEV and see what they can do for me cause I want a jeep wrangler truck

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
