Looks cool. Like the old jeep trucks.
Just cuz your Chevette puked before it's time, doesn't mean a Chevy won't last.
It's very easy to defeat your opinion.
5 minutes of research will illuminate the truth.
However, you are pretty close on the Fiat opinion though.
They are soft as a pancake on the resale market.
Got this in August, I love it. 2018 Tacoma TRD Sport, double-cab, manual tranny

Regarding the cost of the diesel upgrade, you get most of that back when you sell it or trade it.
That thing is sick. If I didn’t have to have a full size pickup (tundra) I’d be all over the Tacoma. I’ve always like them.
So I recently decided to buy a "sort of truck" myself.
I kept my 07 Ram 2500 for doing the dirty work and plowing and I bought a nice Silverado 1500.
It is a 2016 LTZ with the 5.3 Ecotec V-8. Heated leather seats, climate control, remote start, towing package etc. Did a 1 day road trip to Montreal a week after acquiring it and averaged 19.1 mpg hauling at 79mph on rt. 89.
She’s awfully purty, Rex.

This just in: Jeep pickup truck apparently will be named Jeep Gladiator
I like the name.
Not the product, but maybe.
Wonder what the buy price will be on one of these.
After a couple years with that Grand Cherokee, I have to say it's very nice and under-rated. Supposedly, they made the Wrangler a lot more Grand Cherokee-esque for 2018. It's much better on the highway and even off road. If so, that truckified Wrangler should be pretty nice.
However, going up against the new Ram and with the Ranger coming and all that...it's going to be a competitive market.

30k base and upwards of 40K with all the bells and whistles is my guess.
I miss my old GMC Jimmies. I had one like this
and it had the one piece top so I could make it a ragtoptop like this
and with a 350c.i. V-8, military spec transfer case and lockers in both axles it would go anywhere a Jeep would go (except between two trees that are too close apart) and it is less noisy and and better handling vehicle on the open road.
I see them cleaned up and repowered all the time. Full restos are a $ rip-off for a daily driver. But you should get a clean one and make it work. New brakes, electrical and maybe engine and exhaust isn't that much $ and you'd have watcha' want.
I never should've sold the Wagoneer, but wifey was a PITA about it. Now look what they sell for!

I needed to junk the baby blue 74 Jimmy because the underside was rotten and the rest of the truck needed a complete restoration. My wife was in nursing school and I had 3 kids so funds were not available for all that. I ended buying an all black 83 Jimmy that needed a motor for $1,000 because it was otherwise in fantastic condition. I put a 300HP 350c.i. and the military grade (NP203) transfer case from the 74 in it and had some great fun with that one for a while.
I've seen Jimmys and Blazers from the early 70 selling in the low 20's, but the restored units are fetching $40K+.
Most of them did what yours did and ended up in junk yards.
Probably why a good example brings so much money.
Not that many left.
Used to see them everywhere when new.
