Jeep made and sold a CJ6, but this isn’t it. The CJ6 was a long-wheelbase CJ, offered with two or four doors. Today’s feature is a CJ8 with six wheels and the option of two-, four- or six-wheel drive!
The seller claims this was “professionally built”, but doesn’t provide much other info aside from the basics, which does include mention of a Cummins diesel. Critically, the question “why” is not answered, but we do think the end result is cool, even if it likely has less off-road ability due to the long wheel base and extra weight. Still, it should be something of a tank.

We love this thing from this angle!
Aside from giant bumper with PTO winch, things don’t look too crazy here.
Things look fairly stock here, but it looks like aftermarket gauges have replaced the classic, giant speedo.
CJ8 people can tell is whether this is much different from stock. It looks like the cargo area is extended, rather than the seating area.
Cummins four-cylinder diesel is a nice touch, though the seller says top speed is in the 50s.
Here’s something of a money shot – the dual rear axles!
This Jeep was professionally built. It is a true 6 wheel drive. May be driven in 2, 4 or 6 wheel drive. It is believed the drivetrain may have been from a military vehicle.
The body is fiberglass and has been extended but the bodywork is excellent, you cannot see where is was extended. The frame is also very well done.
The engine is a Cummins 4 cylinder turbo diesel. It will do about 54 on the highway but would probably pull a house of its foundation.
This Jeep will attract much attention! Very unusual. Great for shows, parades, etc. Has been in a car museum and gets much attention.
Has a front mounted PTO winch and a rear electric winch.
Drives good but in an extended tight turn will chirp the tires, as in a circle in a parking lot.
