On a personal level I would love to have the level of ground clearance that Brute's do and so far JT Scrambler mules seem to have some generous ground clearance. If this is what production models are like I won't care for a lift.

Oh, that's a great spy shot to show the Wrangler pickup's ground clearance. There will always be those who want more, but that's more than adequate for most people. But there's still the matter of suspension with a heavy load.

The way I look at it as long as ground clearance is similar to the other trucks out there like the F150, 1500 RAM and so on, then it will be setup for success. Those Brutes got great feedback overall and one strength about them was the fact they have great ground clearance.

The 2016 Ram 1500 has a good 10.3 Inches of ground clearance, though that's with the truck's air suspension in its most extreme setting. But with how off-road oriented Jeep vehicles are, we could see similar heights.

ah yes the air suspension, forgot about that, its too bad that we won't get it because Jeep might not have as many reason for offering it unless RAM.
in RAMs case towing and hauling is a big pull towards customers getting the air setup, don't think that will happen nearly as much here with the JT scrambler.

Jeep may want to put more money into developing better suspension and chassis modulation because of their reputation for off-road capability. towing and hauling is still important, but not so much as Ram.

Actually, I think more is expected of the Wrangler pickup compared to a Ram. It's still ultimately a pickup so hauling and towing is very important, then it still needs to live up to the Wrangler name with its off road capabilities.

looks like the Wrangler pickup will have to meet that middle ground which might not be all that easy but if they can do it then this will be one of the best pickups out there for the average person.

they did make the Scrambler longer which means a lot to things like this, fundamentally it will handle more aside from what powertrain and drivetrain options contribute to the overall number, this is a true truck.

So far we've only seen spy shots of a four door Wrangler pickup and according to Jalopnik, that's all we'll be getting. They got a hold of this leaked drawing and said we won't be getting a two-door version of the Scrambler.
