Well, well, well...looks like I was proven right about the "New Scrambler" (from a discussion in the Jeep Rescue topic)
http://autoshow.edmunds.yahoo.....68.*
Unfortunately, there's no manual transmission at first, and no Rubicon package either. At least they kept the hard top!

I gues I'm missing where you are "proven right?"
This isn't a Scrambler at ALL. The Scrambler is still not a production-GO. The Scrambler will have a pickup cab from the factory. This is "just" a stretched Wrangler.
I'm just jibing you btw.

Oh yeah.... http://forums.vwvortex.com/zerothread?id=1180064

Re: NAIAS 2004: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (Sporin)

I still don't see how you can say it's not a Scrambler, even if Jeep has decided not to actually call it a "Scrambler" (big mistake IMO)...after all, with the 103" wheelbase and the extra 5" behind the wheels, it's practically *identical* to a CJ-8 in TJ form.
CJ-8 wheelbase = 103.4"
JWU wheelbase = 103.4"
CJ-8 overall length = 177.2" (incl. spare tire, from http://www.cj-8.com)
JWU overall length = 167" (to bumper, from http://www.rockcrawler.com)
Again, the Scrambler was *never* a pickup. It never had a separate pickup box. The most common pictures you see have the half-top, which gives the impression of a pickup, but it was not, in fact, a pickup.
Now DCX, in their infinite wisdom, may in fact produce something like AEV's Brute and call it a "Scrambler", but that's entirely beside the point...
BTW, I looked to see if anybody had posted anything previously, but I couldn't find it--otherwise I wouldn't have started a new topic.

Re: NAIAS 2004: Jeep Wrangler Unlimited (amper)

Forget history, that has nothing to do with THESE models. THIS is the Wrangler Unlimited. The new Scrambler is a separate model which will be differentiated by a different root/top setup.
According to DC, the new Scrambler is on hold for now. The new Scrambler is NOT in production... yet.

And again, all in good spirits, not trying to berate you or anything.
