If I had to replace the Chili it would be one of those. With a Hemi of course.

I have always liked them....even wondered if you could buy one without the drivetrain so you could put a Tundra powerplant in there and have it run right. Still like them...for most people, out of the box very capable, looks good, solid axles, lockers, frame, removable top. It's really the closest thing to a 70 series we ever got.

Wow Steve and Michele! I really like it! I have already paid my "jeep dues" but I am ready to pay in some more.

I'd really like a pickup truck, but that Jeep is mighty tempting. Mighty tempting.
I could just put a hitch on the jeep, borrow the father-in-law's trailer...instant 4 door solid axle pickup truck with a windshield that can fold down and doors that can come off. Perfect!
