Only let me down once at 210k about 250 miles from home when the vacuum pump seized and the belt melted on the pulley. Drove it to 3 closed parts stores with no power anything till I gave in and called AAA she was starting to get hot.
I had the same vacuum pump do the same thing to me when I was driving about a same-year ambulance... problem was I already had a heart-attack patient in the back who I was trying to get to a hospital.

I tried to limp it a little further after the first big shock and standing on the brake pedal with BOTH feet while pulling up on the steering wheel, but the smoke (in the cabin since this was a van) and brakes just got worse from there.

I had to call for a backup ambulance and trade them trucks when they arrived.

Keep in mind this ambulance had less than 100k on it. This got me into looking at how VW and others worked their systems, and at the time I was told VW used gear-driven pumps instead of belt driven. If that's true, then I remain pretty pissed off at Ford.

sorry if this is 205, but i shot these this summer in town when Jeep was doing some promo stuff. They said they weren't really prototypes, more like the engineers just having fun, but they were pretty cool in person and had modern interiors as well..

A woman at work, who has since retired had one in pristine condition. It had to be a fleet vehicle. It had vinyl seats, base wheels, and the two headlights. This thing never had a spot of rust, a dent or a scratch on it. She always parked it far away from everything else.

Jeep really should build more vehicles on the Wrangler platform...

The Gladiator Pickup is cool. Give me a V8 and 6,000 lbs of towing, and I'd be "in".

Lose that goofy grill, and it would be thoroughly cool.

I agree! That grill is iconic for those who remember them.

Exactly like the one my Grandpa had- first vehicle I ever drove as a kid of 9 or so on the farm. I always thought the roll down windshield was cool. It was a bitch to steer, but in 1st gear it hardly moved anyway Grandpas was missing the grille though.
