<font color=purple>Imagine the power you'd hold if you were in charge of GM, Chrysler, or Ford. You could dictate the design of future 4x4's. Think of the possibilities. Here's mine:
A series of pickups & utilities basically the size of S-10's or maybe a bit bigger. Dana 44 front & rear standard, with upgrades to 60 at both ends possible. NV4600 & 4L80E the only trannies available. Gear-driven transfer case with 4:1 low range optional. 315/75R16 tires as a factory option. Vortec 4.3, 4800, & 6000 (the latter being available as 8600 GVWR with 60 front/rear only) as your engine choices. Leaf-sprung rear suspension & coil front standard. Etc, etc. </font color=purple>
I would keep ever thing you mentioned but for me it would have to be old jeep style in as much as no carpet ,removeable doors, soft top, cb,tire carrier and racks like CJ8mondays,factory installed winch,tow hooks front and back,on board air and welder.Heck if we keep going there won't be nothin left to do to these rigs.
I know I'm going to take flak for this, but...
Have you really looked at the new Aztec?
It's an object lesson in out of the box thinking!
A friend of ours was here over the weekend, and he has the new all wheel drive version, and it is GREAT!
There were tons of really bright people in on that one!!
Hope it catches on before GM decides to kill the project, like they have a habit of doing.
