Re: Beginning of 1993 Cheromanche build

That would be an awesome little super-SWB rig, along the lines of a Samurai.

That would be cool with the wheelbase stretched out for 0 approach/departure angles.

Re: Beginning of 1993 Cheromanche build

No rear steer will be normal in every aspect except the length. I've gotten the roof almost finished just have to finish welding a few spots then grind it smooth. Working on getting some sheet metal to start forming the floor board, and getting the doors cut and spliced together. Still trying to source a 2 piece shaft for it as would rather pick one up in a JY rather than pay close to $600 for a custom built unit from high angle driveline.

Try looking for a 2WD long box extended cab truck. The Chevy 1500s are a 2 piece with carrier support. May be a good starting point for length.

Re: Beginning of 1993 Cheromanche build

No not dead it's still sitting in my driveway. Been traveling for work quite a bit since the project started. Originally wanted to have it done and back together by halloween, now I'm hoping I can stay home sometime to be able to get it done by thanksgiving. Been in DC, NYC, and now San Fran/Oakland since the project started. I've gotten the roof set in place and half way welded in place just need to finish welding it up. I got the 18GA sheet for the new floor pan and some 10GA 3" angle 8' long pieces to build some frame stiffeners. Just have to get home and be home long enough to get some work done. Not supposed to be home until 11/5 so right after that I'm gonna post up a call in the SEC to see if I can get a few people with grinders, cut off wheels, and some good fab skills to hopefully get quite a bit done.

Re: Beginning of 1993 Cheromanche build

I really like this build, and am looking forward to seeing the end result - 4-door MJs have always had an appeal to me that I can't quite explain

Kinda related to this: has anyone seen a 2-door XJ front grafted onto an MJ rear? There's something equally-appealing about an extended-cab Comanche with a little more room behind the seats for gear and stuff you don't want exposed to the elements.

There's one to keep an eye on as he's planning on doing just that with a 2dr xj.

Sad to see it - it's an idea that really seems to have merit.
