Re: Nice little toy.

The puny bed and the sissy fancy interior is for city folks and truck pretenders.The off road course it was on with pot holes was not a very impressive course to show it,s off road prowness.I,ll tell you all this though the J series trucks Jeep made before the Chyrsler take over were true battle tanks.

Re: Nice little toy.

I don't believe any truck is <span style="font-style: italic">"what it used to be"</span>

Take your fist and punch a pick made in the 70's inside the box.....you will hurt your hand....do it to any of todays trucks, you will dent the box !!

Don't throw jeep under the bus all by themselves.......there are others who deserve to join them.....

Your never to old to learn something stupid

Re: Nice little toy.

I hear you, when I slam the door on my 2013 F150 I can tell that it's not as solid as my 97 Dodge was. I can also feel a big difference in the tailgates. It's all about making them lighter for better gas mileage .

Re: Nice little toy.

And the beds are so high you need a step to get to the tailgate to get into the truck.

I think I could probably dent the door panels on my F150 with my finger. I'm surprised they don't buffet in the wind, honestly.

My tailgate on my '02 F150 must have weighed close to 100lbs....my '10 F150's tailgate is half as heavy if that.

You really under estimated the ramifications of the boondoggle you have just perpetrated!

Re: Nice little toy.

It looks nice, but I could think of about 50 different "real" trucks that I would rather purchase for far less that $70K.
Check some local guys who do the same custom jeep truck builds. River Raider Off-Road in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.
