That’s neat looking, I kind of dig it.
It almost perfectly captures the proportions and angularity of the Lamborghini LM002.
It’s called a cheromanchee. We’ve been doing these out west for a decade or more
Ah, the famous limited production Cherokee Double Cab pickup. Perfect for transporting those tall, narrow statues that everyone keeps around their house. AMC really found an untapped market… 😉
Hey, when you simply *have* to move that obelisk, nothing else will do.
The perfect vehicle for moving a telephone booth to a mountain top.
Replace the tailgate with a trunk lid and you’ve got the Willys Aero, back after a 65-year vacation.
Very cool. My favourite remains the Jeep Commache crew cab a gentleman created and posted pics of, at CC in 2011. It would have beat the Gladiator to market by around 30 years, and is cleaner looking IMO.
I also think this clever Bronco-like Commanche/Cherokee would have enjoyed a cult following if AMC marketed it.
I’d like a Pioneer with the long bed and a cab using these 2-door Cherokee doors. The standard cab looks a bit tight for my 6′ 2″ frame, but I don’t care for crew cabs- An extended cab using these longer doors would seem to work perfectly.
I like that, it is the first time I’ve seen one like that.
I’ve seen a few crew and extended cab Cheromanches before.
Locally there is a 4dr that has received a similar treatment as the subject that I’ve ran across a couple of times.
Jeep really should have made these themselves.
If you squint a little bit, that side graphic looks a bit like an Avalanche…
I’ve seen a few XJ Cherokees like that although most were not as neat. I haven’t seen any modded Comanches but it seems like a good idea since the cab on those is cramped. I question the value of such a tiny pickup box unless there is some specific regulation that makes it worthwhile. One that come to mind is the UK regs for carrying pesticides which require a full bulkhead between passengers and cargo and made pickup conversions of Range Rovers and Discoveries a viable niche market, along with Defender 110 crew cabs.The other is tax loopholes for commercial vehicles like the Finnish Camaro “pickups”.
Yes, this mod seems to be a popular thing to do for the XJ off road crowd. It’s all part of the modding process off roaders do to their vehicles to customize them.
These XJs are unit body so it’s a testament to the strength and integrity of the stock XJ platform that people can cut off an important structural component yet the Jeep doesn’t fold like a taco.
They should have done that in the factory, it would have sold, twin cab utes were the next big thing and Jeep had the right ingrediants,
