    Wasn't sure where to put this thread.

    Came across this today, and figured it needs its own thread.

    Discuss away!

    No real leaked pics I could find. When I searched on Google there are a lot of fan made ones which should look similar but not completely what the final product will be. There are spy pics of the real one too being driven but they have it covered so you can only see the shape basically.

    You better paparazzi the hell out of that Jeep pickup when you go see it. I expect no less then 50snapshots from you posted here showing every inch of it.

    I've seen several posts in Instagram regarding it. But nothing leaked as far as I could find also.

    I’m pretty happy with it. Everyone asked for a wrangler based pickup. Looks to be exactly what everyone asked for.

    I don't like the rear doors. They are obviously JL Wrangler door which makes it easier on the aftermarket, but the angle cut at the bottom looks out of place on a truck cab.
    Other than that it doesn't look bad at all.

    I noticed the same thing, looks a little odd to have the cutout for the wheel well even tho it’s pushed back.

    I think the bed is too short. I don't see a point in having a pick-up bed if you can't carry more than a couple of suitcases in it. The bed should be at least as long as a shortbed pickup. 6ft.

    I'm sort of happy to see a Wrangler pickup but with 4 doors its kinda narrow + longish for a pickup with limited usefulness.

    Would definitely like to see a 2 door with a longer bed....but I'm not holding my breath.

    I wonder on the soft top option if you can make it into a longer bed by putting the rear seats down.

    That's sort of like the Avalanche...I think you should submit that idea to FCA to make the ultimate JL pickup.

    Just a comparison to another popular 4 door 4wd pickup.... similar bed size and departure angle, Jeep with a better approach angle.

    I wish the 2-dr ext cab version was available. The 4-dr version reminds me too much of another 4-dr pickup heavy-weight
