Jeep Truck

So long story short ive been a die hard ford fan since ive been a kid "also jeep of course" bit anyways i bought a 2010 f150 and love the truck but it is a pile of crap..the truck has been at the ford garage getting worked on more than its been in my driveway..the latest is some vacuum that engages the 4wd went out..so me thinking it was covered under warranty no big deal..boy was i wrong..300 bucks later and needless to say im not a happy camper..theirs more to this story and alot more money involved..im not a big fan of chevy or dodges trucks so has jeep ever came out with a concept truck..something comparable to an f150, 1500 and so on..better yet they need to come out with one with a big old diesel and lockers!

There is a conversion kit for a JKU to make it into a truck, I believe you can order it from the factory.

3500 when properly equiped. The truck conversion for the JKU turns it into a single cab truck and the kit is available through Jeep, Quadratec, and im sure other outlets. You have to get the Jeep and Kit seperate, They will not send you the Jeep Truck JK-T whatever there calling it put together from the factory

If i could have one id want the inside as fully loaded as possible..jeep needs to come out with something comparable to fords svt raptor..but have HD bumpers, lockers, small lift and nice set of 33s. That would be my idea of heaven!
