probably not a good idea considering its a unibody, but if you make a subframe for it you should be okay.

It shouldn't cost you much to do. Just a few sawzall blades or zip disks for the grinder

I have thought about doing it to my Four Runner...... I think a lift and lockers and winch and lights and body armour and.... and... and... will all make it a better trail rig first though[15] [15] [15]

07-21-2006, 12:59 PM

Personally I'd do it.

The only reason I haven't done my 89 yet is... Wait, there's a couple.

-It's a DD
-Chopping the top of a unibody without a cage is stupid
-I already have a broken jeep that's worth nothing due to the 'mods'

But, if you tie a cage into it, and plate the lower part of the unibody, it'll be fun...

07-21-2006, 06:34 PM
ya u have to build a cage plate the unibody[blah] or it will fold in half

07-21-2006, 07:42 PM
i wouldnt do it without some sort of subframe connector and a cage, without the roof, theres no support if you even lean the roof into a tree

08-12-2006, 02:39 PM
chopping it would be cool, you could even change the name of it to something original like say....Jeep Comanche![27]

08-12-2006, 05:18 PM
lots of people have done it check on jeepin.com board

i bet thats what all of his 33 posts have been. give it a rest man

09-04-2006, 04:58 PM
The rainy season is just around the corner. I\d wait and put the coin into other upgrades. ie: winch, jack-all, straps, tires, lockers, strengthen the unibody, lift, etc.

Hack it in the spring.

09-04-2006, 05:08 PM
i hacked mine and wished i hadnt when the rain came

09-05-2006, 04:15 PM
There is some good threads on naxja.org some sweet xjs there

09-05-2006, 04:50 PM
sub frame conectors and a full cage before you even think about it

09-05-2006, 04:59 PM
ahaha, stinkfinger is gonna weld my rear for me for some coin so, im kinda lookin forward to that, after i put in the new x member

when we doing this

09-05-2006, 04:59 PM
I saw a primered XJ cruise by. Chopped, no cage, no stiffeners.

Longevity, no. But you can do it. It just might increase your RTI score by 2 fold or so!

09-16-2006, 11:13 AM
should not fold till u open the doors lol or you could get a bronco and it comes right off lol then you can put it on again lol

09-17-2006, 11:47 AM
dude lots of guys do this on cherokee boards. you just need to make sure you reinforce the structure with a cage.
