This is partially true. The unibody has a sub frame structure welded under it. Hence why it was so easy to make the Comanche. All they did was hack the unibody off behind the front seats and slide a set of true frame rails inside the existing box channels under the Cherokee's unibody. Voile'. Instant pickup truck. Just add the Comanche's bed on top.
The XJ Cherokee is technically
a unibody because you cannot unbolt the body and lift it off the frame like you can with a CJ/TJ/Chevy pickup. But there is most
of a full frame under the body. It's just welded to the body so as to make it so you cannot separate them.
