    Anyone ever own one? I always wanted to own a Honcho, but never did. Maybe I'll look around a bit.

    I saw on in a little town just west of Duluth, mn. It wasn't that long ago. I thought "trucks have gotten soft since that was built'. I didn't have the rear fenders but the smooth side bed. But, it looked to be in good condition.

    Maybe I should stop and talk to the guy...

    I wish Jeep would bring back the Scrambler, and the straight by-God six.

    I would love a J series truck. I looked at one before I bought my CJ7 but it was a pile of rust and that was about it. Good ones are very hard to find.

    And my CJ7 has a real I6 :D

    That is how a truck should be designed and built. You could actually lift things into the bed.

    Being a huge Jeep fan myself, the J Series trucks are amazing. They are crazy tough, came with stout drivetrain and killer styling!!!

    I almost cryed when the yellow J-10 was destroyed in the movie "Twister."

    I like the old Scramblers. I'm not too sure about the Honcho but that's based only on styling. I do like the idea of this however:

    That is beautiful. Is it yours. I wish Jeep would have produced the Gladiator concept, especially with a diesel power plant.

    I don't even know anything about it. I just know that pics of it have been floating around in internet-land for a while. I imagine it's a concept vehicle. I'd like to see them roll it out for a decent price.

    That's what the Unlimited should have been, not the overpriced monstrosity they built.

    I had a Scrambler and loved it.
