    So, here's a question: with the capabilities discussed of the JT, will it be coming down the Wrangler line or the DT line, too?

    it's hard to judge the size of it, and whether it'd even fit on the DT line, if that was the plan. lol

    No... SHAP will be the primary plant for DT, backup production of DT will be built alongside WS at Warren Truck if needed. JT will have Toledo South to it's own... plenty of capacity there... also might have another vehicle join it.

    I doubt there will be a Dakota. It would take to many ram 1500 buyers and if someone wants a smaller pickup I bet sales people will direct people to the Scrambler JT. With the new Wrangler and scrambler they will be at capacity I bet.

    If the JLT is going to use Ram suspension on the rear. Does that mean that they will be using an independent suspension on the front too? Or by using Ram suapension do they plan on using some of Rams tech from a 2500 that is typically found with live axles on the front much like that of a Wrangler.

    Remember that the live system used in the 2500/3500 was in it's original form lifted from the Cherokee. Eventually ending up on the 97 TJ.

    Take away is this is a real pickup that will have payload capacity. Not just a extremely capable off road vehicle with a bed..... I think that is good?

    Dakota can under cut the Scrambler. You have to remember a dakota and jeep are going to pertain to two different people and one will hold/fetch a premium. If they can make the next dakota more aero and smaller then the twins they'll sell well since the current twins are way to close to the current full size twins

    I would love to also see a 2 door pickup so it could be used on tougher trails, and the long wheelbase "Africa" Wrangler concept. I also loved the Forward Control concept shown at moab a few years ago.

    Sort of looks like a mule to me. Can be anything.

    Man, we really need a high capacity line in Michigan to make more 3.0L diesels.... Stuff that thing into every vehicle we make...

    3/4 size more trail friendly? Powerwagon... with less power.

    In the pictures from the link, it is solid axle front and rear. As said, think of this as an evolution of the original Cherokee suspension adapted to Ram, re-adapted to Jeep, re-re-Adapted to ram, and re-re-re-adapted to Jeep.

    I saw those pictures last night. Can someone educate me a bit on how this suspension differs from the Wrangler, and, how easy will it be for the aftermarket to create suspension lifts for it?
