Yeah they had 12 a few weeks ago. Plenty of colors
Pretty much. They were designed using some MUTT parts originally. I had a MUTT once, it was a pretty cool rig, would love to have a Growler to replace it.
That's the only rig you've had that I truly kick myself for not buying
As long as it doesnt have the cornering characteristics of its predecessor, I would love to have one also.
I'll be that guy. I think they're ugly and too much for $16k. Not street legal?? For that much I would hope so. There's plenty of other cheap trucks that can be bought and modified for less than that and be more than capable. I guess people are into them because it's the new toy but I'm just not impressed.
for the price those right hand drive jap mini trucks are looking favorable to me for farm use.
For $16k I could find a 1 ton LS swapped TJ/YJ and with the right tire setup could be driven on the road. Maybe even a cheaper stock engine rig and a tow rig for that money.
Guess it’s all in what people like/want, but it’s also able to be financed which I think draws a lot of people. With the razor crowd these days, people seem to line up at the door to make payments on a $20k plus toy that can’t be driven on the street. Guess these have the same appeal. They look like a lot of fun but I can’t justify it personally.
You're too young to even get this reference....but this what what came to mind
(F-bombs so listen at your own risk)
Just saw this:
Ive wondered for a while if that skirt the law crowd isnt Mahindra's preferred demographic.
It was just 3 years ago where they announced plans to bring a light duty pickup to market int he US and then that stalled due to NHTSA concerns not found in India.
This might be a convenient way to circumvent that
All good until the DMV officers inspecting them figure it out. I sure wouldn't want to get caught putting a CJ7 windshield on one to change the VIN.
Why not just buy a $5k CJ7 and make it yours?
For almost $20k you can have a very nice street legal better looking Jeep.

For you and I, i agree.
But counter point, for 15k you can have a brand new vehicle.
Right...but if the intent is to grey market it...then the entire intent is to create a vehicle
9/10 you’d just be taking a title to the DMV to tag a “CJ7” and no one would be inspecting it anyway.
Every vehicle I’ve ever owned no one from the DMV has wanted to check it out. Therefore I’d say that crowd just takes a title and pays the taxes and gets the tag.
I know someone who just bought a CJ tub and title just to get a tag on their buggy for Uwharrie. Pretty easy to say “it used to look like a Jeep” Not saying it’s legal, but very easy to work around.
Yes, but technically it should still retain the VIN plate; and it is illegal to tamper with the VIN plate. As you said, it is likely that noone ever looks at it; doesnt make it less shady.
I'm with a few others in the it costs too much for what it is crowd.
As I stated before, I think these are way over priced for what they are, but.......
The first used one i find at a decent deal will be coming home with me.
The reason i want one is, stick turn signals and a few other things on it, and i slap a dealer tag on it and drive the hell out of it.
Plus, it is considered a sxs, so that opens up tons more wheeling spots, especially around here.......
Just buy a Growler like I mentiojed. The first 5 went for high 30's and low 40's. I will wait till they are about 10k if that ever happens.
