Default XJ to Truck bed Conversion?

Does anyone have a step by step to turn my '85 XJ "Trunk Space" into a pickup bed.

I've seen the pictures, and have been thinking about doing this.

Thank's

there's no real step-by-step. look in projects or google "cheromanche"


basically you start by cutting, then you do some filling and body work, then you finish by caging.

cutting up an xj cab is not a good idea if you don't have structural reinforcement in mind...they are unibody and therefore every hole drilled/body panel cut makes it even less strong.

I have not seen a write up for it but am intrigued. It does seem kind of small when it's all said and done.
