Jeep J8
http://jalopnik.com/cars/new-cars/jeep-j8-taking-the-wrangler-unlimited-to-boot-camp-bringing-back-a-brute-of-a-pickup-299862.php

With the all-new 2007 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited as the starting point, Jeep engineers increased its capability and versatility. The frame of the Wrangler Unlimited is reinforced for increased ruggedness and to allow greater payloads - up to a maximum of 1,339 kg (2,952 lbs.). Axles, brakes and suspension components are engineered specifically for more demanding military and civilian government use, including utilising a leaf-spring suspension system in the rear. The J8's Command-Trac four-wheel drive system allows maximum versatility and performance in both on- and off-road conditions.

The Jeep J8 is powered by a 2.8-litre four-cylinder turbo-diesel engine that produces 118 kW (158 hp) and 400 Nm (295 lb.-ft.) of torque, providing towing capability of up to 3,500 kg (7,716 lbs.). The engine is mated to a five-speed automatic transmission. The J8 also features a unique air-intake system with special filtration and a hood-mounted snorkel that enables the J8 to wade in water up to 762 mm (30 in.) deep and tackle sandstorm conditions for up to five hours.

I don't think so.


Ever driven an early flattender ??
I have owned and "restored" 2 of them, they are a sweet little yard tractor, but they bring the suck when it comes to using them as a vehicle. :sonicjay:

I really wish they'd consider offering it in the U.S. I'd have everything I could do to resist the urge to buy one immediately.

yuppers. I'd actually take on a fat car payment again for that.

He said side by side... and I do believe the flatty looks better, but I am partial :tonka:


Honestly I have used my flatty as my transportation all summer for the most part, hauling trailers and stuff in the back, I love it and if I had the time and could afford the gas would DD it...

I think I hear an Overdrive and Megasquirt FI calling my name....

I realized how bad a 2A was to drive, when I had to get to town, and my model T was parked next to it. ( I took the wind-up car )

I took some spy shots of 4 or 5 of them last winter. Several different body styles, leaf spring rear, CRD.

I want one.
