Looks like an R/C toy.

I like it, it is also probably much better off-road than the H2

What is the source for this?

I like it. Looks a bit like a rock crawler. I'm thinking it has something to do with meeting side impact standards in the coming years.

I like it. Looks like expensive tires.

I believe this is the one Hummer is suing over.
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 1:44:16 PM EST
I'll reserve judgement until I see one in real life.
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 1:45:26 PM EST
I would prefer they just put a V8 in a TJ and Dynatrac 60s under it, as OEM. But wait, they are Chrysler engineers, they have to fuck everything up as bad as they can, and have the aftermarket fix it.

Negative. They sued over some other model. Wasn't a Jeep.

Whoa, that "Brute" conversion is awesome looking. If I was to plunk down a mad wad of cash, it would be for that. Ghost

Please please please please tell me that is just a concept design and they won't actually produce it? As a Wrangler owner, that makes me want to puke. It looks like a little, bitch city car that some trashy European company would make for the streets of France. Does anyone have any detailed info on this design?
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 3:22:08 PM EST
Can anyone else say POS. What a POS.
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 3:37:06 PM EST
..looks like an old willys wagon on a power wagon chassis(sp?) ..I'd prefer dual dana 60s with a 4 banger cummins diesel on a wrangler.(6 banger if they could fit it in!)
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 3:52:40 PM EST
Good guess, actually it's a stretched TJ with a custom bed. The engine is pirated from a Grand Cherokee. Probaly easier. You can also get a TJ sport, Sahara, or Rubicon. Since it's custom, you can probaly order how you like it. I'd go for: Dual Dana 60s Dual Air Lockers Front/Rear winches Manual tranny. I'd go for a diesel, but i'd bet that would really jack up the cost.

Dammit, I like it. Like the Brute too.
Link Posted: 12/9/2003 5:25:48 PM EST
I like it. That color sucks though. I saw a version of it in person and it was badass. Rear doors like the ones that are in cyanide's pic could never make it to production though.

I'd buy one in a sec. They keep it under 30,000 and I will break my own rules and go down and buy a new one and drive it for the next 20 yrs...

On Mike's totally free jeep news website, it is referred to as the "RESCUE" It is also showing up in the Detroit Auto News insider 11-18-03 edition.

yup, H2 blows, it is just a chevy truck with a different body

hummer will win against the studebaker, it really is a close copy, definately a stoled design
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 5:41:26 AM EST
[img]http://img.villagephotos.com/p/2003-3/141064/jeepima.jpg[/img] I have my doubts... This is an enthusiasts vehicle, hence it won't have mass purchasing appeal unless they dumb it down. That's way too much rolling stock for the 99% of buyers who will stick to the road. It's just looks too no-compromise to make it into production.
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 5:47:10 AM EST
Looks better than the Liberty. Rough calculations... approach angle= 70 degrees break over angle= 142 degrees departure angle= 55 degrees. As shown, if geared right, it would make one hell of a rock crawler.
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 5:47:48 AM EST
FWIW...I like it.
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 5:58:09 AM EST

I think they might win, but I think it blows if they do. I don't think Hummer/GMC now owns the copyright on ridiculous "I have no cock" vehicles.
Link Posted: 12/10/2003 8:47:51 AM EST
Well, how about the H3T then? [img]http://www.stern.de/_content/51/72/517207/hummer500_500.jpg[/img] 4.44 meters long, 19 inch tires, 3.5 liter, 5 cylinder GM VORTEC engine, 350 (DIN) HP, 474 Nm torque.

[img]http://www.stern.de/_content/51/72/517207/hummer500_500.jpg[/img] Words cannot describe how ugly that is. It looks like a reject from a transformers cartoon. It looks like it might turn into a carport that holds a real car.

A 75,000 dollar truck, it will never see a scratch in the bed.

a good 4X for the market would be an suv that costs less than 28 grand new, 31 inch tires with room for 33's easily, solid axles, full frame, skid plates, lots of ground clearance, approach and depart angles very steep, real bumpers, tow hooks, fornt and back, reciever in front and back, low overall height, 300 hp, lockers in front and back, power steering, electric wench, green, black wheels, no fancy interior, and it is allowed to ride like a lumber wagon, no power anything, just a plain ole am/fm radio, no air, easy acess to the engine to work on, and a manual trans, 410 gears, and a really low ratio transfer case, and full time 4X
Link Posted: 12/11/2003 7:25:42 AM EST
oh yeah, 4 link suspension, front and rear, coil springs, and adjustable control arms, front and rear
