You'll be able to purchase a new, 2005 Scrambler in about 18 months

We've posted the rumors about a long-wheelbase Wrangler in the past, but here's the first report that the Scrambler is going to be making a comeback. Thanks to Matt (one of our readers) for giving us the quick heads-up on this story.

Autoweek.com is running a story about the 2005 Scrambler pickup that will be available in mid-2004. Here's a snippet:

Jeep will sell a pickup derivative of the Wrangler in 2004.

The Scrambler, developed initially for military use overseas, goes on sale as a 2005 model in mid-July 2004, said George Murphy, senior vice president of global marketing.

"It has been developed to increase sales quickly and to pass on the tradition of the Wrangler - which has the strongest image of any vehicle in the Jeep range," Murphy said.

The Scrambler concept sits on a stretched Wrangler wheelbase, enabling the addition of a 4-foot pickup bed behind a two-passenger compartment.Murphy said the Scrambler will be available in long and short wheelbases, but Chrysler declined to disclose specifications. Four- and six-cylinder engines will be available.
