Those seats do look comfy! Why would purist have a problem with it? If it performs like it should then it would be great because it already has the look.

That looks cool. I'd take it. 6-pack in Winter Chill please. It might need some additional sound deadening .

Wagoneer version of the three seat Durango would just require badge engineering and some trim. This took a lot more work.

Re: Is Jeep serious about this? 3rd seating in Wrangler?

Just like the article says, it is a one-off produced for SEMA. There are no plans to mass produce it. QMC is just showcasing their capabilities.

So is Jeep serious about this, NOPE. Is it a pretty cool concept, YUP!
