Willys 2


I really don't have a lot of info readily at hand about the Willys 2, but it is another rumored replacement for the TJ Wrangler. The body is supposed to be carbon-fiber along with other material trials, but you can see the low-profile tires and lack of ground clearance associated with this prototype as well.
Interior detail.  Notice the open (drainable) seats and semi-utilitarian dash

Willys 2 montage.  Looks a little photochopped to me....
I'd love to see a better shot of those tires.  They look to have a nondirectional tread like classic military tires.  They don't seem to have a lot of tread depth however, making me wonder about handling.

Looks to have decent ground clearance, but the door sills look rather high.
The Willys II looks to have decent ground clearance with huge coils at least in the rear, but the door edges look rather high. For rock-crawling I'd imagine this design makes spotting the tires very difficult, due to the wide 'lip' along the upper part of the door that looks like it will block the view
