Found it! Here is the website for the Jeep TJL, currently manufactured for use in Egypt. It appears to be based upon the TJ platform, however, so I'm not sure if the parts can be transferred to the JK platform.
Doesn't it seem patently unfair that the Egyptians can get a Wrangler based truck, and we can't?
Almost looks like a Cherokee or at least similiar...
haha i like to see someone finally talking about this...(I mentioned it 8 months ago) http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showt...=433842&page=2
What part of that looks like a cherokee i don't know... but they also sell them to civilians. The arab american motors company is a relic of the AMC days when they had set up plant in egypt, to provide with ... stuff... My question still remains... when will they stop production of the beloved TJ?
Oh BTW... they don't have rollbars!
A TJ is like a BJ,if you get the right one,you will know it and be happy. :)

I loved the Comanche a great deal, and mourn its loss, but neither of these options seems right to me... just not very much like a truck really. That conversion kit reminds me of the Scrambler (wasn't that the Wrangler with a truck bed on back?). Not sure I'd not rather just go back to the J-10 pickup style.
During my travels (5 deployments) since 9/11, I have seen quit a few "strange" looking Jeep models over here in the Middle East.
I wonder if they make them cheaper, as they don't have to pass an inspection, and thats why they only supply them to these foreign countries. Also would make sense why we don't see many...if any make their way to the States.
Kinda like some of the strange little cars in Korea.
