If you're disappointed that the Jeep Gladiator is only offered with four doors, here's your chance for something different. This is a 2003 Jeep Wrangler that's been converted into a pickup truck -- and it's a simple, single-cab pickup truck rather than a quad-cab affair like the Gladiator.

According to the seller, this particular Wrangler has been converted by AEV, which is a company known for modifying Wrangler models into pickup trucks dubbed the "Brute." This particular Brute doesn't use a 4-door body style, but instead touts a single cab, which some would-be Jeep Gladiator owners have insisted they want.

Underneath this Brute is a desirable starting point: it's a 2003 Wrangler Rubicon, finished in a rather distinctive shade of gold. It uses the Jeep's desirable 4.0-liter 6-cylinder engine, and it touts a manual transmission, which some enthusiasts prefer for rock crawling. This Wrangler has traveled just 29,000 miles from new, and it's been converted to full air ride suspension for a comfortable ride and for adjustability.

Of course, you could just go out and buy a new Gladiator instead of this -- especially considering that this Wrangler Brute is offered for $42,995, which is about the going rate of a nicely-equipped Gladiator. But you won't get that single cab look that's sure to turn the head of every Jeep owner in your area.

If you're interested, this Wrangler is offered by Capitol Chrysler Dodge Jeep in Willimantic, Connecticut. Find a Jeep Wrangler for sale
