I'm kind of surprised by how small the "Jeep" font is on the tailgate. How are the Ram engineers going to know this isn't the project they're supposed to be working on?

I think certain people will like it. I like a 6 foot bed because life is 6 feet long... not 5'7". But some people just need enough bed for a dead animal...

I like it a lot. I'm very tempted by this. But I have a truck. Ultimately, I think we'll buy a Wrangler JL. My current savings plan is to buy a 2020 JL in 2021 that is lightly used. Basically what I did with the Power Wagon. I bought my 2015 in March 2016. Avoid the first year release model.

I think these are going to sell like hot cakes, especially to the overlanding community. Especially the instagram SoCal overlanders. Tacoma's have been hot ticket items. And serious buyers lean towards the Colorado ZR2, but the Jeep is going to have all the sex appeal.

Just look at this mockup I found on IG already

The doubters are just that. These are going to be everywhere. Especially at the REI parking lot meet up. LOLOLOL

Do you think I'm a doubter? These are going to sell great...and there's going to be a lot of used ones on the market. Someone who wants a small truck and likes the way this looks is going to be miserable and turn it over in less than a year.

I don't see why you, Mike, would want one when you have a truck. A JK or JL makes a lot more sense for you.

Cause it looks cool and I like shiny things. Also I almost bought an H3T Alpha once upon a time admittedly. Not sure about my judgment...

This won't fit us anyhow.
