Default New M715 (concept truck)

I ran across this while searching for M715 parts.
This may have been posted before, but there is some love for the M715 body style. Not that I need any convincing.

There are some pretty cool photos. They do make a really good effort. I'm impressed!

Big old wheelbarrow full of NOPE from me.

1) posted every 18 seconds on FB

2) more nostalgia-whoring from Jeep. I guess they've run out of new ideas.

3) carbon fiber front end. Try beating dents out of that when it shatters!

4) 6 ft bed.

5) 6 ft aluminum bed.

6) 6 ft aluminum bed full of holes, so your stuff can fall out.

7) 6 ft aluminum bed full of shocks and cage, so you can't really put stuff In it anyway.

It looks exactly like what I'd expect youtubeDoucheBrahMonkeyGarage to do to an old work truck. "How much of this WRX bling can we graft on here?"

I do like the drivetrain and rubber fenders... Scrape off the bedazzling and it would be cool.

I guess it is good that they know that our market segment is out here, though. They could just build nothing but the Compass.

“Scrape off the bedazzling”.... I giggled a bit out loud on that. Not ashamed to admit it. That’s funny!

How do you really feel,Subybaja?

I'm with ya, I like factory stock,be it a M715, M38 ,M37 or an old Jeep pick up. Not to say though there are some awfully nice nodded trucks being built. To each his own.

I'm not even a factory purist- I just don't like billet/carbon/speedholes on military work trucks.

And I've had some coffee now.

Not a bad design but to me, the Nukizer looks a lot better.
