While I agree with your post here Doc, when I went to purchase my Warlock, due to supply issues at the time, the dealer told me they (FCA) weren't accepting any new truck builds/orders, so I ended up with a vehicle that had, of the current offerings, the most of what I wanted, including being a legit Warlock. And I guess, I also happen to have a low-buck Rebel, since it seems the Warlock is just a 4th gen/Classic Rebel clone/wannabe judging by pictures. If I were financially able, and was in the market for a newer truck at this time, it would either be the Rebel or the TRX, slight lean towards the TRX if money weren't an issue. But then I would have to sell my Silverado, and use one of the new(er) trucks as my get to work ******.If it's not the truck you want, and it's an optional purchase, what's it matter what it costs? If I'm dropping over $65k I'm getting *exactly* what I want.
Personally, the Rebel is the only 5th gen I'd have any interest in.
