Re: Jeep Apache P/U

Hehehe- If you look a little closer you can even see the blue "Limited" decal. I'm sorry that I can't take credit for this though, I found it on the net somewhere in the "Comanche Webring." Besides...I never would have called it an "Apache" since Chevy used that name back in the 50s. I've been hoping Jeep would bring back their full-size pick-up line for years now. (Imagine it, a 360 powered quadra-coil pick-up with standard straight axles and Jeep good looks!)

Re: Jeep Apache P/U

Actually, Sycho, Jeep did toy with the idea of a convertible XJ in the early '90s. It was going to be called the Jeep Cherokee Freedom. I think the first photo might be of the prototype.

Why didn't he just buy a Comanche instead?[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: Jeep Apache P/U

Cut up cherokees are great! This one belongs to a couple good friends of mine, and is affectionately called "the Black Rat"

Re: Jeep Apache P/U

Yep- that first picture is of the "Freedom" Damn shame it didn't catch on as it would have filled the niche left by the Jeepster Commandos. Most likely though it would have bombed and been discontinued only to be come a collector's item the very next year...

Re: Jeep Apache P/U

I've often thought that the XJ was sort of the modern version of the Commando or at least it occupies the same market as the Kaiser/AMC Jeepster/Commando did. It is kind of a shame that that market expanded greatly when the XJ came along. The Commando was ahead of its time....and now is almost a collector item with a fanatical following...just visit our Commando "cousins" on their board to see how much they care about their Jeeps.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

BTW, how do they keep the structual integrity of a topped unibody XJ?? Do they use the Commanche body stiffeners??
