The president of Fiat (Fiat owns controlling share of Chrysler) gave a shear holders speech some time ago. In that speech he gave Jeeps international vision, of becoming a stand along company and they will divers with different modals and cars. It was speculated that the Fiat 500 was going to be a Jeep brand in North America. The closing comets where that they were going to go after Toyotas placement in the markets with competitive modals for the Land Curser, Hilux, and Tacoma. As he walked off stag the curtain behind him lighted up and you could see a jeep based truck was there. Now at the same time the Jeep Gladiator disappeared from the concept museum and reappeared in a yellow. They I have now read in another article that it diapered agene and has come back more DOT friendly and with the 4 CYL diesel gone and the 6v gas instead.

Yea, what happened to all that recent buzz about the Jeep truck? Just flat out died. They came out with the Mopar JK-8 kit to convert a $20k Wrangler Unlimited to a truck and I'm seriously hoping that's not what all the hype was about. It's kinda cool in it's own right, but that is not really a Jeep truck.

 

Hopefully Jeep does come back with a truck, especially with the Dakota being dead. Jeep has been pretty weird lately. They've barely talked about the 2012 Wranglers and it's already on the lots being sold. Jeep.com is still pushing 2011 rigs and they aren't talking about the new Pentastar motor for the Wranglers at all.
