WranglerJapanese Jeep TJ Scrambler - Only One
Posted by Anonymous on 2006/8/4 11:52:15 (2297) reads


Autoblog.com recently posted some pics from the Toyko Auto Gallery (Show) where the Japanese company Tiger Auto showcased a special creation of theirs - a TJ pickup stretched to nearly the length of a Commander.

The boys at Tiger took a standard Jeep TJ, stretched the wheelbase 600mm (23.6 in) and then custom-fabricated the rear cab enclosure and the pickup bed. They documented the whole build in a series of photoessays on their website. (Look for the links labeled "Lung Ra" pickup.)

The result is a very well-finished neo-Scrambler whose overall length matches that of a new Commander. A modest 2" lift, custom convertible top, Recaros, and wheel/tire upgrade add the finishing touches. We're big fans of the old-school embossed Jeep logo on the tailgate, too.

Check out the complete article as well as additional photos of the Scrambler from the show as well as these and these.

Good work, but not as proportionally correct as the AEV Brute, or anything built by AEV to make a sweeping generalization.

What would you expect ? The Asian (Chinese) market has been copying American designs for YEARS.
