Something you could do light wheeling with.
Best description would be like having a classic Jeep Wagoneer with a late model Tahoe underneath.
I think that the point is to avoid having something "like" something else. If you change the vehicle too much, it loses its appeal. Furthermore, if something like that were done, we'd not only lose all the support of the Jeep purists, but Chrysler would come nowhere near it and the possibility of them augmenting the raffle with a modern vehicle (like a Commander) as they have done in the past with the Charger would be lost.
The only modern suggestion I have liked so far is the Hemi idea, but I would have no real "say" as to how the buiild would go if they choose the Wagoneer. It would be 100% their ball game once it leaves my possession.
