The spare actually looks like its tucked up and away pretty good. That departure angle is what will kill off-road ability.I like the idea of a Jeep 4 door pickup...the wheel base looks really long to me though. If the spare tire is mounted underneath I would want some kind of mounting system to move it to the bed of the "truck" and not create a low clearance spot for wheeling.
This is clearly only one configuration for the truck, and it isn't any longer than any other similar mid-size truck.Just does not look right to me. Too long.
This is kind of a silly statement. If all of those brands thought the same way, you wouldn't have all of those options because everybody would only buy one truck.I do not see the purpose of a Jeep pick up truck. If you want a Jeep, get a Jeep. If you want a 4 door pickup truck, then get a Toyota, Ford, Nissan, Honda, etc.
The Gladiator concept has always been my favorite Jeep concept vehicle...and my Scrambler has always been my favorite Jeep. The 103.5" wheelbase is about perfect...right between a JK and JKU. The 2-door JT does look similar to the Gladiator...at least the artist's renderings do. I'd be surprised if the artist didn't take cues from the Gladiator as much as the camouflaged mules that have been seen. I''ll be interested to see what the JT really looks like. Until it is actually revealed, all we have are speculative renderings and amusing musings by self-appointed experts.If this is what the new Jeep pickup looks like I think it will be a hit.
Amazingly the 2 door looks a lot like an updated version of the 2005 Gladiator, only a little smaller.
The 2 door would be sort of like the old Scrambler,...
Adding a third version like the extended cab Gladiator would bridge the gap between the short 2 door and the longer 4 door. It would be like the extended cab Chevy Canyon, big enough to be practical, but small enough to go off road.
