Default Cherokee Hard Body for 324mm Defender

I haven't seen this posted before. It's a nice Cherokee hard body for the TRX-4 with the Land Rover Defender wheelbase of 324mm. What I'm not sure about is if it's one piece or if it has to be glued together. The photos give conflicting information.

Who's going to be the first to build one?

Looks like the same Cherokee knockoff of the original that's been floating around for a while. There have been a few bills with them already

That looks pretty good. Opening doors are a cool touch. Wonder how detailed the interior is. Kind of hard to tell from the pics.

It's based on the china two door JK, so it should be pretty detailed. If you look closely you can see the painted red door up front from the original and the back door is all new

There Cherokee body has been around for a while, but that was a 313mm version. This is a larger version for the TRX-4 that has a 324mm wheelbase. There are builds of the 324mm TRX-4 one on here? Where?

If you were still wondering how it fastens together, body pieces are screwed together from the inside. It's a very straightforward, easy build. Especially if you don't paint it, like me. Because, I suck and hate painting.

What is the durability of the hard bodies? Would this thing disintegrate if it did 10 or more rolls down a hillside?
