    I would buy that! I have a preference for long wheelbases of course.

    or maybe these escaped. There are several military versions of this on the internet. And everything you read on the internet is true.

    I'm not convinced it's not a home brew. The dimensions look way different than that CJ2L, and the rear wheel openings look chunky = bondo, or cut with a jigsaw. The door openings look a tad longer too. :shrug:

    I agree. NOT a 2L. It HAS a tailgate. No glove box, civvy steering wheel, wrong gas tank placement, etc., etc. Nothing military about from what we can see.

    I'll agree that it IS rare..........because only 1 was ever made........in someone's back yard. Not that there's anything wrong with that. Some cool stuff gets fabbed up by this guy some call Bubba. This JEEP isn't all that bad, though it's not for me. A lot of folks want more room to carry gear, or whatever, in their JEEP.

    If it is some factory oddity, I've never seen one before.
