XJ with a bed (humvee look-alike)

Hey guys, I am lookin for pics of where people have chopped the back off of an xj and made a bed out of it (humvee look-alike). I know I have seen them on this site before but I tried searching with no luck. Anyone know where I can find a pic of the xj humvee hibrid? I want to show my buddy cause we are thinking of maybe trying this on his jeep.

Thanks

did this have any negative impact on the driveability of the xj? Does make the unibody weak?

Here's another... rear slider and cab section from a comanche was used. The box in the back is water tight and accessible by folding the rear seat forward. Pretty cool rig, friend of mine just bought it from a guy in North Bend who did all the work.

I think that one day my jeep will end up having no rear roof, cuz that looks way too apealing to pass up. I mean, you get to have something that barely anyone else has, and you've got an XMJ. The Chermanche! HA!

The Cheromanchee has already been done and they even had a custom decal made up that says "Cheromanchee" on the side of it.

The AEV Africana is the cleanest conversion I've seen:

It actually doesn't say "Cheromanche" anywhere on that jeep. It says "Jeep Cherokee Africana"

Plus, chermanche sounds better

Thanks for all the reply everyone. My buddy is seriously thinking of doing this and the more I look at the pics, I am too. Good looking rides and that rock crawling is awesome!
