Cohort Sighting: Jeep Cherokee Homemade Pickup – Lada-Like

The picture is pretty blurry, but this homemade Jeep Cherokee pickup posted to the Cohort by Big OldChryslers caught my eye because the result is so similar to the Lada pickup from yesterday. Which raises the question: if Jeep had never stopped making the Cherokee, would there still be buyers for it like there are for the Lada Niva?
