JEEP CREW CHIEF 715
We’ve written about this Jeep before, simply because it’s probably our favourite bakkie in the whole wide world. It is called the Crew Chief, and it is one very spectacular pick-up truck. It is based on the Kaiser M715 military vehicle of the 1960s, complete with army paint job, old-school grille and chunky tyres. Look closer, though, and you’ll notice some recognisable components. The doors, for instance, are straight off a Wrangler Unlimited. Indeed, the Crew Chief is largely just a Wrangler with a modified body. It has a stretched Unlimited chassis, as well as a 3.6-litre V6 Pentastar engine, which is mated to a standard five-speed auto gearbox. Sadly, the Crew Chief was just a concept created for Jeep’s annual Easter Safari, but the company has announced that the next-gen Wrangler will be available in double-cab configuration. If it’s one 10th as cool as the Crew Chief, we’ll be happy.
