    Jeep Rubicon 392?

    Maybe a Jeep Factory V8 wrangler again? Who is getting in line?

    They had to do something to counter the hype the new Bronco will be getting. I won't be in line for either one though. Sounds pretty sweet though

          I certainly don't understand why it wouldn't carry over.

            Knowing Jeep it will probably be 6 figures...

              No one has better record of building killer concepts people would actually buy with no intention of actually making them than Jeep does.

              Ford has been talking up for years about the Bronco being a direct competitor to the wrangler. But the unreleased bronco is already known for sure to have IFS. All it would take for Jeep to keep Ford under their boot when it comes to market share is to sell a factory V8 straight axle Jeep.

                People thinking they would actually build this was pretty laughable. Everyone seems to have forgotten that they have five or six unreleased concepts from the EJS they didn't attend this year. So, get ready for more disappointment.

                  While you are right, who buys jeeps these days for actual jeep-ish driving? No one, at least not enough to influence the company designs. $60k jeeps are mall crawler and suburban mom territory. They want comfort, and that's not a live front axle, to them. It's an IFS in a JK.

                    I'd buy this (J-6 concept):

                    . . . or possibly a J8, but the Glad He Ate Her is just too damned long.

                    I may eventually buy a Glad, but I would've already bought a J6.

                      Anything Chrysler is shit. While hot out of the box but garbage after up to 80k miles and beyond.

                        My 2015 Ram 1500 EcoDiesel has had an o-ring replaced in the water pump, and a cruise control switch went bad. 140,000 miles and counting, with original brakes and no other repairs.

                        Generalize much?

                          One of us might be surprised, and it might be me. I live in the mountains of Colorado and spend all my time running around on 2 tracks in the Southwest where people buy new Jeeps, put a lift tires and light bars on them. I spent 4 days for the 4th of July Above 10,000 feet mine hopping. Jeeps (new ones JK/JL’s)seemed out number all other mfgs combined by 2:1. Everyone around here at least thinks they are wheelers that picked a wrangler specifically for its off-road ability.

                          But there’s a lot of country I don’t have my finger on the pulse of. I might be surprised to find that the rest of the country I don’t travel to, would consider a wrangler the same as any other suv.

                            Probably only in a 4 door too. Not that any of this hype matters until it's not a concept.

                              For the most part, in highly urban areas where there's a concentration of money to be able to afford these and where most buyers are, they are a status symbol.
