I actually wish they would make a “J5” if that makes sense. Basically take a jl unlimited 4 door and put a bed instead of the second row seat and doors. Even the J6 concept has a pretty bad departure angle.
100% agree, and I'd prefer a J6 with a shorter bed as well. Something closer to this..

digging the Overlook- looks like a possible stepping stone to the Africa concept.

only major dislike is the rear area above the window.

I’d rock it as an overland, light wheeling rig. Delete 2nd & 3rd row seats and Goose Gear it out.

Yes! Well almost....I'm a snooty Rubicon guy (just kidding! don't get all mad all the non-rubicon people out there:giggle: so for me it would have to be a Rubi or even a XR version would be best.

And actually after seeing this rendering, I would even be happy with about a 4' bed and maybe a little room behind the seats for a small bit of storage. The bed really could be pretty small for us. Anything big I use my utility trailer anyway.

But yeah, even though the proportions in this rendering are a little weird, it still looks pretty awesome to me! Break over and departure angles no worse than the 4 doors, now we are talking about a Jeep pickup!
Thanks for sharing it

Very welcome! Yeah, I think if they just shortened the bed of the official J6 concept and had it end closer to the back of the rear fender (like the Autocar rendering), and maybe extended the cab slightly, it'd be about perfect. Would improve departure angle and still leave some storage behind the seats. Would look more like a factory-made JK8 Wrangler conversion.

Was just goofing around and tweaked the J6 with shorter bed and longer cab..

Probably a dumb question but does anyone know anything about the bumper guard on that 4xE? I’m digging the integrated lights. I can’t find it online, which I suppose makes sense since this is a concept. Just wondering if anyone in the know has more info. Thanks

Welcome to the world of wishing and waiting for concept parts to actually be production. Still waiting on my plaid seats from the Red Bare concept.

I wonder since there is a Grand Cherokee L, will we see a Wrangler L.

Well the right use isn't carrying people. Look at that interior shot. How do you even get into the 3rd row? It's still a full bench seat in the middle. It may be interesting from a Jeep-focused perspective but if you look at other manufacturers, far more practical interior design while relatively on-par with off-road ability.
Yeah, my kids can climb.

And please do share a 3-row vehicle with "on-par" off-road ability

I didn't think the J6 concept could be improved upon. Looks like I was wrong 🤣👍👍

I love that Kaiser Ambulance. I'd play as one of the Dirty Dozen (favorite movie of my dad and I).

Don't know if I'd want a hot rod 392 in it, but that is cool! I'd like a diesel, but since I'm dreaming I'd want it without all modern emissions

I want this with a full Alu-Cab Icarus/Thor conversion top. 392 Recon Rubi version, just throw some airbags in the springs and call it good. Imagine how big of an Aux tank could go underneath...either fuel or water, or smaller versions of both.

The Overlook is absolutely going to be green-lighted and it will sell big. The vast majority of them will never see off-road duty, but the design (IMHO) and appearance is really excellent. It will be bought by a ton of folks who might have been thinking Land Rover/Range Rover, but want something different, with a "bump" on the roofline. Frankly, very few people ever use the third row of their 3-row SUVs (I'm speaking as a 2018 Buick Enclave Avenir owner with a 3rd row that is actually useable...), so doubt that will be a factor for hardly anyone. Absolutely love the color, which will also be a massive hit. Definitely think black is NOT the answer to the interior color for multiple reasons, so they need to rethink that. The hood also has a nice new look that sets it apart. This will be a winner, and I would get one if I was in the market. It's also going to be major $$$. Prepare for sticker shock....
