While the Gladiator borrows its rear suspension from the Ram 1500 pickup truck, the J6 is all Wrangler underneath, so it lacks the four-door pickup’s 7,650-pound tow rating. The two-door JL Wrangler has a 2,000-pound tow rating, while the Unlimited ups that to 3,500 pounds.
If it does what you need it to, perfect. :thumb:Don't care, still want it. It'll do everything I personally need a truck to do.
Only thing I need to tow is a motorcycle trailer. Or a small utility trailer, which the box would negate.I would own the J6 tomorrow if it was available. My kayak trailer is well under the 2,000 lb capacity.
Automobile mag has it correct- everybody wants one and they will sell dozens of them. Look at how few two-door Wranglers are sold anymore, and nobody produces a single-cab midsize pick-up anymore for a reason. The JK Short Cut was super cool, but even less practical than a regular two-door, and they were smart enough not to produce those as well. Besides, where would all the soccer moms put their Coach bags and Starbucks lattes when they haul around their 2.5 kids?
Right, they probably come off. But you'd think with something this unique, they'd have a pic of that. It makes me wonderLooks like standard JL doors so those probably come off. And the seam on the top just at the bottom of the window line from the door suggests it's a removable top.
Honestly, that would suck if they did. It would pretty much guarantee no standard cab JT.I saw this concept up close at JeepBeach this weekend and talked to the Jeep rep. Both doors and the hardtop come off. Looking out 2 years, he said this model may come to be one of their 4 new model releases/yr as promised CEO.
