    The stretch Chrysler 300s were done by an outside company. FCA was not involved with the longer conversions, the shorter one didn't offer extra seats.

    The Jeep Africa concept demonstrates while FCA can give a hint, they don't necessarily accept any. That model might have offered three rows. With the exception of of a few military vehicles built in Toledo, any three row CJ models one may see were built by licensees outside the United States. These models were for commercial and military use and not for the consumer market. None were imported that I know of. I don't know if anything like that is still in production. The Jeepneys of the Philippines are strictly hand built.

    There was a motel in town that during the 60s and 70s had a 4 row Checker. "Charger, the new Checker!"

    Im all for a 3 Row or fixed roof Wrangler, it'll be simular to a H1 Hummer. a Military-ish or Safari style SUV. extend the 2nd row a bit for more room atleast. with a little rumble seat as a temp "3rd row".

    And you get 3 rows!
    And you get 3 rows!
    And you get 3 rows!
    Everybody gets 3 rows!

    Seriously though, is that a hard "no" or a "go ask your father no"? Asking for myself...er...um...I mean a friend. :D

    probably a hard no. No business case for it, I would bet, then having a 7 seater in Wagoneer wouldn't be so special either. -shrug-

    Jeep seems to be leaving its military/agricultural/industrial roots behind as it gentrifies the lineup. Models like the CJ8 Scrambler and the more recent military J8 were offered as base models which could be outfitted as pickup trucks, utility vehicles with soft tops, or a station wagon with a hard top covering the vehicle from the cowl back. In the case of the Scrambler, the after market seemed to take over from where AMC Jeep left off, except in the case of a few hundred units for the USPS. The J8 was marketed outside North America.

    I can't imagine a bare bones model, which to build upon to suit one's personal wants, would compete with any upcoming three row Jeeps. But such a vehicle might hinder Jeep's move towards gentrification. Meanwhile FCA is showing the Fiat "120" concept which offers a similar build one your way idea predicting the future.

    A la carte options are dead though. The last time they tried was Dart, and that failed pretty hard, iirc.

    Yeah, I can’t imagine the bare-bones TJ I bought back in 1998 would fit in the current lineup for Jeep. I paid extra to get intermittent wipers, a radio, and carpeting in the cargo area IIRC...I don’t think those were standard on the base SE model then. It was a fun vehicle for me...my mom and my future wife hated it...it wasn’t for the faint of heart that’s for sure. Lol. They now want to have Jeep be a premium offering, well my TJ was as far from that as you can get.

    Yeah. Everyday I see people come on to JL forums having traded in a Porsche, Audi or Lexus.

    If we think Wrangler prices are obscene, the price of new Porsches, Audis and Lexii must be even worse.

    Of course they, too, are the first to complain that the steering sucks, the wind noise is excessive, and that “Jeep customer service” is an oxymoron.

    I would happily trade our Audi for a bag of hockey pucks, much less a new Jeep. It’s by far the most temperamental vehicle I’ve had since the Escorts we had when I was a kid. My Wrangler was stellar on the other hand, only one minor issue in the 4 years I had it. Granted being as bare bones as it was, there wasn’t much you could break. :D
