TJ Tech?

(and yes, we all want one, which means that it'll never get built! Gladiator anyone?!)

Its just a concept... It won't ever hit the market. It is a flexing our muscles type vehicle that auto companies to do show off new technology, go all out kind of thing. That vehicle, like it is now, will never see a show room floor with a price sticker on it.

I'm not talking about how it looks, I'm talking about how all of the wheels turn (as in steer), instead of just the front wheels.

The "concept" of it is ok, it's the look of it that I don't care for.

Amy - read the HowStuffWorks link - explains it all on how the wheels turn.

It'd probably take forever to get a set of tube fenders for that thing from JC Whitney, and exactly where would you mount that reap snorkel?

Was at Walmart last night and saw one of those motorized kiddy cars that was a hurricane. I wish I has stuff like that when I was a kid.

Didn't that Concept come out about the sametime as the Diesel Powered Gladiator Pick-up a few year back?

I think the year after, and the dealer tells me my Gladiator is scheduled to be built 2 weks after hell freezes over, so I'm looking forward to that!
