A reader spotted this single-cab Jeep Wrangler JK pickup truck with manufacturer plates in the Detroit area this morning. It's probably a product of the aftermarket, but maybe, just maybe, a Chrysler employee is field testing the very thing many of us have been dreaming of for ages: a modern, factory, Wrangler pickup.
Scott Buesching of American Expedition Vehicles, purveyor of the "Brute" Jeep pickup conversion, says it's not one of theirs. He reckons it's the "JK8" bolt-on kit Chrysler showed at SEMA in 2008. But there are some differences, mainly in the roof.
