    I think they just should leave trucks to the guys that already make them and stick to what they do best. Personally if I was in the market for a truck, I don't think they'd bring anything to the table for me that I couldn't already get from one of the other manufacturers.

    Is there a truck you think can match a stock Rubicon in offroad prowess straight off the lot? My friend had a Tundra and loved it. Curious what your thoughts are.

    Not really, but I think if they make a truck it's not going to be as capable straight off the lot as a stock Rubicon either. Maybe they can pull it off for some people, but for what I would need it for they'll never be able to wrap everything up into one package. I think I'll always have to have a jeep and a truck.

    If they could make something the size of a Tacoma but have it optioned up like a Power Wagon that would be pretty legit. The Power Wagon seems pretty capable but it's pretty damn big. If they make a jeep truck it definitely should be on the smaller side of the truck scale.

    To the OP I would go with #2 .

    To Granite the Power wagon with its rear locker and articulink disconnect, raptor, and the Toyota Tacoma TRD pro package(rear locker 1" lift and 2.5" fox shocks) would probly be the closest in trucks. As the raptor and Tacoma are marketed as "offroad" trucks and the power wagon has similar features as a rubicon. But their sheer size and approach and departure angles couldn't touch a wrangler unfortunately.
