    So I saw this jeep a while ago at a dealer. Ive decided that a jeep is necessary for the urban routes I have. I figured put a 6.5 plow on, and jam a small sander in the cargo area, and then use one of those snow blower mounts on the plow. KILLER urban driveway unit. Well I figured the price would be far less for stripped down jeep such as this one. WRONG...

    Anyone care to take a guess at the sticker price on this thing? HINT, it is truly SHOCKING.

    I had the same idea. I was thinking about taking a Rubicon and have a rear window and wall made for it essentially turning into a very short pick up.

    Im gona guess $68,374.72

    I would but a 7'6" boss on the front and a nice little back blade on the back with a mini salter. That would be a nice little rig.

    I bet these are just flying out the door! :laughing:
    I admit, it's a good idea.... That being said, the price is a joke!!! Along with the company who's selling it.
    Whoever thought it was a good idea to price a Jeep pickup at the same price as a new F350 is the genius who's gonna take Chrysler into the ground.

    After seeing that time laps jk8 conversion, it makes me even more upset that the package is an extra 17k..

    Jeeps are neat vehicles, don't get my wrong, my brother has an'00 Wrangler with a lift and big muddders and make no mistake I think it's SWEET.... BUT- I see no reason at all for a Jeep to be $46K.... totally insane for what's basically a 1/4ton pickup truck....:dizzy:

    Jeeps are awesome for off-roading and playing around in, and maybe even some light plowing.... but when it comes down to getting some real plowing done.... nothing's gonna beat a 3/4 or 1 ton 4x4 pickup loaded up with weight in the bed and an 8 or 8.5' plow out front... Thumbs Up

    I can easily envision a sweet small site setup, Snow Dogg VMD up front and a Downeaster 1/4yd Stainless Salter Or even a Curtis Sno-Pro unit in the back.
