Wow... that was a sh*tload of work. Looks like they just dropped an XJ body on a blazer... Why??? Would be fun to drive I bet though.

x2. the saying "just because you can doesn't mean you should" came to mind. I don't really like seeing a giant frame inbetween the tires and the body. If they took those pics from further away I would've thought it was a tonka truck.
I would really like to see some close up pics before I passed judgement. The front "body lift"/ radiator core support?? leads me to believe that the craftsmanship is sub-par and a little scary to be honest. I'm not a fan of the XJ transplant onto a frame idea as a whole, however I do like when a project is done properly and is original (not that this particular XJ posesses either of these qualities).
If it were properly built I bet it would be alot of fun and fairly unstoppable.
Edit: Upon looking back at the pictures again I have one more comment- That roof rack is useless with the bottom of the doors being tree feet off of the ground.

1. Control arms look awfully small
2. Tires look like over sized lawn mower tires
3. Front leaf springs
4. The radiator thing in the front looks dumb
5. Massive roof rack
6. Chevy? come on now
Other than that it's ok I guess...
