    obviously quite a few more than 6 jeeps there. I just picked a few from the webz that I thought were cool or something different.

    Light blue "Black Forest" - got me thinking of ham or chocolate cake, but the grille/header on those are pretty cool. Several with that style grille. what's it from ? not cherokee classic, or j10.
    green rear steer 2 door - nuff said
    AEV overlander. probably could buy it or a rental condo, but its still cool.
    Chrome and red. REALLY want to see under the hood on that one, or at least the other side. bet it's loud!
    a 6 wheel for Pook
    Red - nuff said!

    nice to see a few show jeeps that look like they would be functional, rather than lifting a jeep just to cram 28" wheels on it

    I've seen a pic of the engines, yes two, on the chrome and red one. Horribly (and not sure why) they used 2-3.8 v6's.

    Glad you filtered out the show jeeps. That wagon and Jeepster Commando are sweet!

    geez that's dumb. double the rotating mass and resistance for no gain in HP/tq over a big block. not to mention the fab work getting the two to work together. BUT they get to put 6 port exhaust on each side of it..... dumb

    Yeah, makes no sense to me either. Would have fit the look to do two 4.0s like the older inline engine of the 20s and 30s. But the work it took you think they'd use something cool, not just minivan engines!

    I like the 2dr rear steer, and the expedition vehicle.. But have to say my favorite two out of the pictures would be the Willy's Wagon and the Commando... I liked the black JKU (for Milestar) with the old Gladiator front end on it... But I might be slightly biased since I know the guy who built it, and has been wheeling it hard for many years!!

    It's a custom fiberglass modified version of the old FSJ Gladiator grill.. The one I posted above in black variation, is more of the actual gladiator grill...

    Yes, two v6s but you forgot to add that both of the are turbocharged. Daystar had it in their booth. From videos I have seen.

    Built 4L60E with manual lockout
    Atlas 4 speed
    Griffin radiator
    On board air
    Warn 9.5ti on custom bumper
    7.5" RE front and bastard pack rear on custom long arms
    30 gal gas tank
    lockers
    And a bunch of other stuff

    Jeep has also used the FSJ front clip on a couple of concept vehicles, they may have been the first to do this....

    J12 Concept


    Nukizer M715:



    And you can have your very own for 6500.
