    I aint crazy about the bed, but the cab looks a whole bunch like the original forward control. The chassis looks like a Mercedes Uni-Mog. One of the originals clam to fame was that the bed length and the wheelbase were the same.

    Neat stuff. Jeep should put the 5 cylinder MBZ diesel out of the Sprinter in it.

    My wife saw that pic of the Forward Control...and WANTED ONE! I sure wish they'd build it.

    I think it is 'military' form now - with those heavy axles. With a small V6 and some Dana 30s, it would be fun for use around here.

    This is the Jeep I wish they'd build...

    I like that one.

    I'd want one in traditional rollbar style Jeep though. Might look something a little closer to this

    There's a white one with an extended cab at my local Jeep dealership. I thought it was OEM, but maybe not. I'll have stop by tomorrow and take closer look.

    JP magazine has talked about them releasing some diesel powerplants in the Wrangler and when they bring back the Wagoneer.

    I'd still take a Pinzgauer. In fact, I'm on the verge of picking one up and will keep all informed. HH

    They do. You can buy a kit directly from Chrysler for $5400 that you can install or have the dealer install. Another option is to go through AEV.

    Yeah, I like that one. Good bumpers and undercarriage armor, a winch, a few lights...

    eh, but....

    Wranglers upgraded with a new Mopar kit that lets owners easily bolt in the 470-hp Hemi V8 in place of the standard Chrysler V-6 in models with a five-speed transmission

    Now that's sounds like more fun.

    This would be pimp times six for a local fun-mobile. They were showed in Miami a few years ago and were supposed to have a 800cc Suzuki powerplant with a top end of 70 MPH and serious MPG. RWD only with locking read diff.
