Re: dual cab conversion

I do not know why you would spend $60k+ on a Jeep and chop the back off it. There is nothing wrong with the selection of utes we have. It just depends on wht you want to use it for. A hilux dual cab would be the same size and payload as a JGC converted to a ute.
There is also the new VW Amarok if you want some Euro luxury.

It is the towing capacity of the gc, that the both the amorook and the toyota do not have.
Its only a couple of dual cabs that do offer the same, and as mentioned, do not come close to the gc, even optioned out.
cheers

Re: dual cab conversion

Suspect you would be better off converting a LWB Durango than a GC. Would be more space for a bed and a drop-down spare tire.

If you converted a GC you'd lose that towing ability. As mentioned before, the GC is a unibody vehicle, and so chopping off that part of the roof would eliminate a lot of its body stiffness and thus towing capacity.

Have you considered just getting a small trailer for stuff you would use the bed for?

Re: dual cab conversion

I always thought Jeep should consider bringing back the Cherokee truck as a 4-door competitor, considering how well Tacomas and Frontiers seem to sell.

I agree. The loggers around here seemed to love the Jeep truck, but there were fewer choices back then.

Re: dual cab conversion

This is the last year you can buy a Chevy Avalanche. It would be much cheaper/easier to do so, and keep your Jeep.
