    Looks pretty cool. Hope that they do start using them again.

    In all seriousness, Iím hoping Jeep does get a military contract...I also know the military airborne division is looking for a lightweight troop transport that they can parachute in with troops so they can reach objectives quickly...

    I tried reading it and drifted off. I donít actually see it happening unless the price tag exceeds $150k per unit. Only then would it make sense to the govt to buy it.

    Pretty cool, but the last paragraph mentioning that no foreign nation can't have a stake in a defense contractor is confusing. Wouldn't FIA then become a defense contractor if this project gets a green light?

    I gather it would be AM General that would manufacture the vehicle, under license.

    Looks cools. That's a soft top roof line though, cant imagine they would actually use that.

    In my opinion this isn't really the practical for any combat zones. Unless they're armored, I didn't pull up the link so maybe missed that... After seeing what the mines and roadside IEDs have done to vehicles in Iraq I'd rather be in a LAPC or M1 personally. Actually scratch that, I think I'd prefer to be in a C130...

    I see the Air Force using them and thatís it. No way these things would be used in an actual combat operation.

    This would be a good alternative to the Mercedes G wagon a lot of countries are using for light vehicles including Australia.

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.
