Um............ that ain't good.  Building ONTO the bed?????  We all know our MJ's don't flex much between bed and cab........ but there IS some movement.  That truck is one pot-hole or speed bump away from a whole lot of cracked body filler and ruined paint.

 

Massively bad idea.

Looks neat. Wondering if he left the bed mounting alone or did any modifying to it. The XJ shows that there can be a successful one piece body, frame but stiffness is designed in from the start. I think it just boils down as to how he joined them.

I agree.  I like the idea of it, but I would have moved the bed back or bobbed the front of the bed and extended the cab back.  Neat idea, unfavorable execution...

Looks like it is 2/3 front XJ and 1/2 of an MJ. I would totally dig it if the bed was its own unit.

Yeah... that looks very sketchy from a durability point of view. Shame that it'll probably end up snapped in half eventually, because someone put a lot of work into that. Good idea, terrible execution. An extended cab MJ done in the normal way is something I'd love to see.

looks suspicious photoshop-esque to me.   I see lots of very careful cropping of the photos so we don't see too much.  and look at how wide the drivers side B-pillar is compared to the pass side in this shot.

As much as I agree with that the bed looks jank and could be photoshopped. Looking at the glass, more importantly through the glass..it doesnt look photoshopped to me. I honestly don't think some dude from Greece is going to going to spend all of that time photoshoping those windows just to trick and impress a bunch of people in a different country on a facebook group. lol

On a second thought, some of these pictures do look pretty sketchy. On the outside shot where you can see the whole truck, look at the joint between the original cab and the bed. It doesn't reflect any light like the 'paint' around it. I'm saying this is at least partly photoshopped. You'd have to be insane to actually build a vehicle like that. The upper cab chrome trim isn't straight either. Looks like a clone stamp job from that angle. Very clean '97 conversion, though.
