They were Grand Cherokee's.
I think I remember reading that the GC and the Wrangler were tooled up due to the influence of the German Importer of Tamiya kits.

I have a Grand Cherokee promo that is 1/20 scale (maybe 1/18,not sure) that I bought on ebay. It's in a blue box with no maker that I'm aware of. It states on the box " you have 59 seconds to build this". Inside, there's some information about how the Cherokee is built and that one rolls off the assembly line every 59 seconds. I only got as far as painting the interior,but lost interest due to the odd scale.

I'm 99% sure that's the 1/20 Lindberg kit, issued as a promo for Jeep events. I stumbled upon one on eBay last year, then saw the Lindberg instruction sheet. :(

There is no Cherokee (XJ) Kit, only Grand Cherokee (ZJ). I'm building one, it is a long, long project, for now I have only the body almost done... And it is in 1/24.:)

Yup, only XJ's I've seen in scale have been either 1/64 from Matchbox and now Johnny Lightening (still need to find the latter brand), Proline has a couple lexan R/C body shells available, then there was a guy in Germany that had been selling resin bodies and complete running R/C trucks..........the bodies alone were $300-$400 and the RTR was closer to $3,000-$4,000! I could buy a 1/1 Cherokee for less than that! Some Chinese diecast maker was supposedly going to be producing a 1/24-1/25 scale '84 with a 4 cylinder at one point a couple years back as an anniversary model for the ones that were sold there under licensing with AMC, then Chrysler, then Daimler Chrysler. Now that I think of it, there also was a "Land of the Lost" XJ from the TV show, but it was somwhat Palmer like in it's overall appearance...........although it at least looked like a Cherokee

Joe, I think there was a 1/20ish R/C "toy" XJ awhile back...can't remember the brand offhand. It was supposedly a pretty accurate body, if we could get ahold of one of those and "shrink" it for resin casting...

Briz, I borrowed your pic of this odd-scale XJ, hope you don't mind...it's the only image on the net that I could find of the 'lil one!

Never seen that one before, actually looks right too?! If you even get one of those and resin cast them, let me know! If it's 1/20, it wouldbe perfect for Losi's Trail Trekker micro scaler :)

Wonder which chassis that body is mounted on, looks like the Venom Mini Giant that I used to own.
