Re: grand cherokee = SWB ?

The Grand's and Cherokee's are not considered SWB Jeeps, but you are welcome here anyways. Most of us own a ZJ, XJ, or WJ as well as our Short Wheelbase rigs, so you could probably get an answer for any of your questions here.

I'd consider a scrambler or CJ6 a shortwheelbase, too. Whaddabout you guys? Or would that be short-mid-size or long-shortwheelbase?

Re: grand cherokee = SWB ?

Alright! I have one vote from Mel that my Commando is SWB. After all, 104" is the same as a CJ8 (but I had it first [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img]).

Re: grand cherokee = SWB ?

Hey, I figure a CJ6, CJ8/scrambler to be SWB just cause they are REAL Jeeps! *grin* They even look like bigger brothers to CJ5s and CJ7s! Cherokees/Grand Cherokees are "Jeep Brand" (TM, Regisered, copy right and all that stuff by Dailmar-Chrysler) rigs! Great SUVs, and ALMOST a Jeep! *Grin* Just kidding!

Maybe a CJ6 or CJ8 would be considered an "overachiever" SWB!

It's all a state of mind, and if you don't mention the state of my mind, I'll be happy to overlook yours!

Re: grand cherokee = SWB ?

Hmmmm - fine line huh?
Actually the scrambler is 103 1/2" hehe
According to the "illustrated buyers guide" book a pre-1972 commando is 101" WB and 1972-1973 is 104" CaverDave is this true? (believe it or not, I don't own one of these)

Now the XJ is only 101.4" WB - uggh! Where is the line drawn?? Do we need subcategories???[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Now I'm not going to be able to sleep tonight stressed out as to the whole Jeep category heiarchy.... then again maybe it's too much kerosene heater fumes...[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: grand cherokee = SWB ?

This has always been confusing to me..before Sept. 1999, it really didn't matter; all Jeep vehicles were together on one forum. One big happy family.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img] Like any family, there are bound to be differences in taste: who likes square headlights, who likes wagon bodies, who prefers short wheelbases, etc.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: grand cherokee = SWB ?

Isn't the GC the modern day equivalent of the Grand Wagoneer?
Are either of those considered SWB?
On the main index here the GC is mid-sized and the GW is full sized.
I don't know what the "classification specs" are for SWB, Mid, or Full, this is just an odd thing I noticed pertaining to this question.
