[IMG]file:///C:/Users/Gagliani/AppData/Local/Temp/moz-screenshot-3.jpg[/IMG]An attempt at a more car-like Jeep was based on the CJ-5 chassis. Called the Jeep XJ001, it was designed in 1969 by Kaiser Jeep as a concept vehicle just a year before being taken over by American Motors. The XJ001 featured a fiberglass body, an open back, and door-less sides. AMC inherited this concept in 1970 without having a plan for it. As fate would have it, the Jeep XJ001 was destroyed when the truck carrying it flipped over and burned.
