I'll be sad if the rumored Hercules was just a 1 off concept JT for Moab. Im hoping they're genuinely planning a production

Unfortunately it is just a concept. Jeep just LOOOOVVVEESSSS making what people have been asking for for 20+ years then never going anywhere with it.

If they had loads of trouble getting the cooling right on the 3.0l ecodiesel they wont be able to pull it off with even a 5.7 hemi without additional cooling installed elsewhere in the Jeep.

Maybe setup those fender scoops to pull some air in and install a radiator in the body behind the fender having it exhaust where the vent is on the jl.

I'd take that photoshopped 2 door with an ecodiesel. Even without the suicide doors that's dangerously close to a proper Dakota replacement.

Confirmed, blue one is indeed a two door with a roughly 6' bed. Seems to be some inconsistency on the actual wheelbase of it though. Some sites say it's based on a gladiator some say 4 door wrangler. One says 6 foot bed and yet still 12 inches shorter than gladiator with a 2 door jl wheelbase. Have a gander.

Supercharged one is an old military truck they refitted with a hellcat engine and lots of custom goodies.

That 2 door would get my money... But I just have a thing for regular cab trucks.

HOLY CRAP, ITS GATOR GREEN!

"Gladiator is the real deal right down to its special camo-style paint job known as Gator Green (yes please), which is said to become available on the Gladiator later this year in the US."

I'm with ya man. But it looks like they made a blunder. It does appear to be based on a 4 door wrangler which means it's woefully underrated towing wise for what would be an otherwise nearly perfect diesel pickup.

If they got that sorted and offered it for preorder with a diesel in Rubicon trim I'd go place an order tomorrow.

So the concepts this year all all Gladiator variants, and at least 3 of the 5 are actually doable with mostly mopar parts and some added flair. Too bad I like all of them. Now my choice between gator and 1982 Scrambler throwback are going to kill me.
