Default 95 cheromanche lowtech garage build

now when i did this i started with a 95 cherokee i picked up off of gl4x4 for $400. i did this in my garage just a decent set of hand tools, a couple of cut off wheels and some carpentry skills. i was using mybudys welder 15miles from my house so over engineering with full cage wasnt an option. Bed is braced across and back with 2" channel and fastend to frame and body in multi places. also added roof supports, and 1" angle boxed across bottom of the widow, the widow is bolted to the angle and roofsupport)

now i know alot of ppl will hate this and say ive lost all of the struture but its just a backroad beater and belive me its about twice as solid as it was before because the old floor was getting rotted.
if you like it let me know

looks good any ideas on a tailgate? A working tailgate would set it off. It would be nice to see it at the jeep blessing

you could cut the back off a comanche bed and graft it on so you have the taillights and tailgate.
