Jeep Trucks: Past, Present, and Future
Petersen's 4Wheel & Off-Road Magazine has written a great blog entry on their website about the past, present, and possible future for Jeep-brand pickup trucks.
They first cover the history of Jeep's trucks, with photos and descriptions of of the original Willys truck, the Jeepster, the Forward Control FC-150 and FC-170 trucks, the J-series pickups, the CJ8 Scrambler, and the MJ Comanche.
Then they cover today's aftermarket pickup conversions such as AEV's TJ Brute & JK Brute Double Cab, Mopar JK8, the Burnsville JK Hauler, and the GR8Tops halfcab kit for the TJ.
They show some of Jeep's most well-received concept trucks as potential future production options, including the Gladiator, Nukizer, Mighty FC, JT, and J12.
And since Jeep's roots are in building military equipment, Petersen's also shows some of Jeep's military trucks: the CJ-10A, M715, and M35A2 trucks.
