I'm worried that at the prices Jeep are asking for the JL, it will become less appealing to someone who has never considered a Wrangler before. As mentioned, why spend that kind of money when it will get you a top of the range dual cab Ranger or Merc.



Anyway, it looks like the JK might have a decent resale value after everybody hangs on to them.
Well for starters, they both don't offer a solid front axle, which would limit off-roading. I'm keen to see what happens. I'm waiting for the jt to come. Prefer that over the cruiser. That being said, the cruiser does appeal with the v8.

Someone posted a pic of the jt with the service body on the back. I can't for the life of me find it now...

True, but that doesn't mean much to those that are in the market for a dual cab ute. They just want something that they can throw gear in the back, will go on the beach and the occasional fire trail. Not everybody wants to do the hard stuff so they don't care. IFS is the norm now when it comes to 4WDs, that's not going to change.

That pic you are talking about was doing the rounds on instagram. I believe it was created by one of the moderators from here. Definitely looks better than a tub.
