Grand "Cheromanche"?

I've seen it and it exists. tbick has a pic up on the lifted zj thread. How is it done and how much does it cost, because its one of the sickest things I've seen in a long time.

you take a sawzalll, and cut the back of the roof of the ZJ off, reinforce the fame, significantly, and fab a new rear hatch, and of course a tail gate.

i have thought about doing it a few times, and each time i come to my senses, you just end up loosing too much space,

and i allready own a pickup anyway.

haha i'm liking the paint photoshopping. even though it's expensive, it'd be cool to have a soft top on a zj.

A local customs shop just finished one. I believe the most common and well liked term for them is "rubigrand".

If i see it again i will try to grab a pic, but they basically cut it after the rear door C pillar, and used the existing rear hatch top portion, along with some sheet metal work for the lower part, to weld in place of the hole. It actually looks alot like speedbuckets first picture, the top part of the rear hatch(including the glass) is moved forward to the c pillar then welded to the c pillar. They also had a very nice cage in the new "bed" area, with the spare tire mounted there.

yeah that looks nice and all, but these are unibody vehicles, and the roof plays a large part in unibody stiffness, removing it without proper bracing will make the body wrinkle up like paper offroad. thats why the cage is needed

I think it'd be kinda cool with the back glass permanently removed, edges smoothed, and a tailgate conversion, but leave the rear shell intact. Use a canvas divider behind the back seat. Sort of a ZJ/avalanche crossbreed.

Won't be doing mine anytime soon but as long as we're dreaming

Rubigrand is an insult based upon darth teddy's abortions.
