The fact that Jeep is actively testing the Wrangler based pickup truck is not even a secret anymore. There were numerous sightings of the Wrangler pickup test mule and this time an eagle eye enthusiast saw a Wrangler pickup test model in the US and made a video of it. It will be offered in the double cabin body style and will also get a familiar design and styling of the new generation Wrangler. The Wrangler pickup will use a variety of aluminum plates to control the weight. Of course, the SUV will have the Wrangler's legendary off-road capability and load-towing capabilities.
