Fake supercar replicas are tacky, but we get why people make them. Usually the car enthusiast in question deeply desires a Ferrari or Lamborghini but can’t afford it, so they modify their existing car to look like their dream ride so they can at least get a taste at what it might be like to own it.
We assume the builder of this oddball Jeep Grand Cherokee for sale on Craigslist had a similar train of thought. He wanted a Jeep Wrangler but didn’t have one, so he modified his Grand Cherokee to look like a Wrangler. Unlike those who build supercar replicas, however, we don’t really sympathize with the Jeep owner.
Performing this conversion was almost certainly more expensive than selling the Grand Cherokee as-is and using the money to buy a second-hand Wrangler, so what was the point in doing it? Did they want four doors? Did they want to do it just to say they did it? Who knows! What we do know is the result is beyond awful.
The listing has been taken down since it was first posted. Perhaps some unfortunate soul actually went and bought this eye sore, or maybe the owner realized the error of his ways and set the Jeep ablaze in a desolate parking lot somewhere. Fingers crossed.
