Spied: Jeep Scrambler Concept/AEV Brute

According to Eric Ridenour, the Jeep Gladiator was axed because it required its own unique platform. A production Jeep truck, if approved, would have to be based on an existing body-on-frame architecture, which brings us to the Wrangler pickup prototype we spotted in Detroit, as it was being transported between two off-site facilities for final assembly work. A Wrangler pickup has been rumored for quite some time, with the name Scrambler mentioned.

That's a brilliant idea to build a Jeep pickup. It'll help it compete with Hummer and give DCX a compact pickup again. Plus it looks retro cool, and like a Jeep should. I can easily see this selling. Ditch the stupid Compass and build this!

that is the old chassis for sure.... the new one is much wider and more road friendly. I think this isnt a prototype but more of a toy that was built.

The concept is ok, but the execution sucks. I wish they would make it look modern like the regular Wrangler or the H3T. Other than the front end it looks like an old truck.

Great idea!

I hope that Hummer does the same thing but a real compact truck that is off-road tested.

GM needs a real compact pick up because the Colorado twins sucks butt!

:drool::drool::drool: Me likey a lot. Of course I'd have to have it based on the new 2007 Wrangler though.

Deep down inside I've always wanted a Jeep Wrangler... if Daimler-Chrysler produces this pickup version, I don't know guys - I'd be very tempted! I only wish GM would hurry up and make the H3T, just like it was in concept form. Then I could say "Jeep Wrangler-pickup who"???

But I think that Wrangler-based pickup is pretty cool nonetheless. And correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought that the Gladiator concept-pickup was based on the new-for-2007 Wrangler???

they'll find a way to mess this up.

Scrambler was the name of the CJ-7 based pickup in the 70's and 80's. I think it is a great idea just so long as they make it off-road capable.

So this is a Comanche comeback of sorts, but this time as a BOF model.
