    I am just not digging it. The old saying is buy more truck than you need. I can't imagine the tow capacity would be high enough to tow anything other than a lawn mower. There is no way I would hook up a horse trailer or a trailer with three or four atvs on it. It is a four door = four people = four atvs, four dirt bikes, or two sxs or one four seater sxs. I think owning this truck would mean that you would have to own two trucks. One to do real truck stuff and then this Jeep truck.

    Not everyone wants a truck for towing.

    I just couldn't leave that first picture alone

    I'm no Picasso, but I just had to see some bigger tires on it.

    If they made it a 2 door with a bit of an extended cab it would make more sense to me. This thing reminds me of the Ford Explorer from the early 00s that had that useless bed on it.

    Yeah, and why are the rear doors still angled forward at the bottom? Maybe it is just more bullshit images.

    Just saw the Artec pic you posted. The door still doesnít make sense to me.

    Man, the Brute is so much better looking. Iím not trying to dog it but if this is the real deal, Iím not as impressed as Iíd hoped.

    I can only image how much FCA saves by not designing two (left and right) new doors, then producing and stocking OE replacements.

    Agreed 100%

    However for people that donít already own Jeeps I see this being a big hit. Hell, I would have one if they were available when I bought my JK.

    In the end, Iím glad they are going for it and building it. Thereís been talk for years of building it, and finally itís here. Good and bad, itís really fricken cool! Canít wait to see a gladiator in person.

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.
