It's not designed to haul a huge load, it wasn't designed to be great on-road, it wasn't designed to tow trailers.

    Awesome idea, I just think it will slowly kill of the Jeep and more specifically the Wrangler as we know it.
    Jeep does have some history of some larger pickups. I know I've been on the lookout for the right Kaiser Jeep 5 quarter ton pickup

    I suppose. I just wish they would differentiate the two models a little more.

    Anyone know what brand and name these wheels are.
    or any other details that me assist me in looking them up.
    thanks in advance

    I would think this would have to be a stand alone vehicle & based on a RAM chassis. I wouldn't think the JL chassis, even with a beefed up frame would be able to handle the loads, towing capacities and other requirements that a 3/4 or 1 ton pickup would see.
    This would have to be one big truck. In the HD truck market if you ain't big you are a marginal player in that segment.

    Edit - looks like I bit on the old thread revival deal...

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.
