    as has been mentioned on this thread and forum a couple of times, it has to be long in order to offer a decent tow rating.

    Anyone else notice the spare tire under the bed? I for one don't want a large tire underneath the bed. It's a PIA to change one with that setup IMHO.

    Itís a truck, not a lot of options. Also Iím sure the aftermarket bumpers will come up with a solution pretty quick.

    Iím sure the spare under there will drag. A lot of guys that have AEV brutes and the older H3Ts would bed mount the spare when they built them to run off road.

    Still hoping to hear more from FCA

    Seems to me this truck will be aimed at a small market segment. Those that love the Wrangler and want to see it in truck form. There will be some mall crawlers out there who want one. I see it going the way of the scrambler in a few years.

    When I first got my Brute, it had a 35 under the bed between the frame rails...It really wasn't a problem there, and for anyone who's owned a pickup knows, it's a common place for the spare. However, when I went up to 37's, the spare had to go into the bed...while it made changing out the spare easier, there was a slight change to the cog...but not much.

    If I end up getting a JT, I am totally going to build a tire carrier in the bed like you did in your JK6. I think it looks sweet like that. I just want to make sure I can still fit cargo/wood underneath it. Time will tell.

    You may be surprised honestly. I imagine that FCA would have it in the midsized truck segment, which is a booming segment. Toyota has the Tacoma, Nissan has the Frontier, Ford is bringing the Ranger back, and Chevy has the Colorado. All of those vehicles sell really really well (think of how many of those you see on the road). This is the one market that FCA really isn't a part of, ever since the Dakota was cut out of the Dodge/Ram division.

    Imagine the offroad competition in that segment :
    -Ford Ranger Raptor
    -Chevy Colorado ZR2
    -Toyota Tacoma TRD Pro
    -Nissan Frontier Pro-4X
    -Jeep Scrambler Rubicon

    Exactly. Over here itís the fastest growing market segment. Especially the premium models. The JT is more aimed at Europe, South Africa and Australia where full size trucks arenít the norm.

About us
ďwayoflifeĒ is a moniker that Iíve 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.
