Six Pak Extra-Long-Wheelbase Jeep Wrangler JK
Quality Metalcraft's Jeep Wrangler JK Six Pak is the three-row family rock limo you've been waiting for. I linked to AutoWeek's original pre-SEMA release photos here, and as expected the one-off Jeep made its appearance at SEMA where it was a huge hit.
The automotive press ate this thing up, with coverage and photos published by Autoblog, Hillviewmotors, Gadgetreview, Examiner, Fox News, and Eddie.
While a Jeep of this size would certainly be useful to some people in certain types of terrain, its extra long wheelbase would be a limiting factor on tight trails and big obstacles; even the 116-inch wheelbase of the standard JK Wrangler Unlimited is a bit much. But as a much more capable alternative to a Chevrolet Suburban, this Six Pak gives real offroad ability to those who need a large family 4x4.
