Apparently Jeep wants a pickup, the people want a Jeep pickup, but Chrysler isn't convinced...yet.
Honestly, If Jeep offered a 4-door, crew cab, short bed, stick, TDI pickup (with a soft-top, a guy can dream) I'd be first in line. Oh wait, they already HAVE something close. They just don't sell it here, big surprise.
