Here's a walkthrough/interview at the LA Auto Show:
(don't really care for the host)
One of the most interesting parts is the interview with Tim Kuniskis Head of Jeep Brand North America.
At 14:55 - 15:41 they discuss the reasoning for the lack of the 2 door (lack of ROI due to low sale numbers), and the V8 (lack of space for crush zone).
I think you will see a ton of this with the overland crowd. I saw some IG pics of one photo shopped with a patriot camper type rig replacing the bed on 40's similar to what you posted. Looked really good. Just rooftop tents etc on a bed rack will sell too. Rubicon model will have really good offroad capability you can't get with Tacoma having front and rear lockers. Toyota's are super reliable and have a strong aftermarket, but nothing compared to Jeep in my opinion. You could make a really awesome overland rig on 60's running 40's. I didn't like the look at first, and will never be able to afford one, but the aftermarket will help them sell.This is what I would love to build from the JT.
No it doesn’t. There’s no saving any of that thing. Maybe it’s just the fact that the front of that thing is bigger than my whole country and the nameplate is longer than the Nullabor.I lol'd a lot at the new HD too. However, the High Country trim kiiiiiiind of saves it though:
I talked to Bestop at SEMA, they had a new soft top for pickup beds that they launched. I confirmed that they'd have it for the Gladiator.
