2wd Cherokee?

I know some or most of you may say its sacrilege, but tossing the idea of making a 2wd lowered 2 door Cherokee convertible roadster. For the front suspension, late 70s early 80s Comaro/Firebird front sub-frame? Need to find a 2 door Cherokee NT with a bad roof so I don't feel too bad cutting the top off. Roof can't be too bad cause i was thinking about making it the cover for the rear cargo area.
Thanks to Men in Black for this thinking.


not shure of how to get a pic I have on MS Paint to here but I think a rough concept looks cool!!

The whole idea is just WRONG !! JMO, though ! It's your money and vehicle, you are allowed to do with them what you will in our great country.

Nope not sacrilege! Love the idea! One of my top 5 favorite FSJs ever:
http://www.ifsja.org/forums/vb/showthread.php?t=127321

I want to build a similar style Jeep. Here's my vision: If Jeep entered NASCAR in the mid 70's, what would that look like? Wide track Cherokee, 2WD, lowered, fat meats, nasty loud exhaust, lumpy cam, etc.

rang-a-stang, yes that is one hot Cherokee. Now my idea is that, but no roof. Actually make some of the roof a hard tondocover thingy.
