The New Old Adventuremobile

I recently posted about a cool, restored VW Rabbit pickup claiming I could be a truck guy. A commenter aptly pointed out that's technically not a truck. Agreed. But these are. I'm so stoked on these latest Jeep concept vehicles that hearken back to an era off roading before the acronym SUV was ever uttered.

I love this four door, four seat Wrangler pickup called the Brute by American Expedition Vehicles. It's totally reminiscent of a classic, safari-like Land Rover Defender 130CC. All it needs is a green canvas cab over the truck bed. More pics here.

Jeep was recently in Moab showing off this modern-retro interpretation of an 80's era J20 pickup. I especially dig the white steel rims and chrome hubcaps. More pics here.

Finally, my face officially melted the moment I saw this modern, forward control Jeep concept. Also on tour in Moab, this amazing monster is a flawless-looking American-made version of a Mercedes-Benz Unimog or a Land Rover Series IIB Forward Control. More pics here.

I want this thing. It makes me want to crawl rocks and winch something out of a bog. Here's to the new old adventuremobile.
