Jeep Grand One concept started life as a Craigslist purchase

Jeep bought this 1993 Grand Cherokee on Craigslist and turned it into a resto-mod, off-road machine.

Jeep's Grand One concept was built on a 1993 ZJ purchased off of Craigslist in Pennsylvania.

Jeep really embraced the early-Nineties theme, inside and out.

Note the subtle faux woodgrain finish, a painted-on homage to the plastic-fantastic trims once offered on the Grand Cherokee.

Arrival and departure angles are still pretty good thanks to tightly snubbed overhangs.

The word is "rectilinear."

The Grand One is powered by a basically stock 5.2-liter V-8 engine mated to a four-speed automatic transmission.

A mild lift helps give the ZJ added presence, and should help the Grand One tackle the red rocks of Moab at the Easter Jeep Safari next month.

It's pretty stock in here.

Of course, you have to have a hardwired mobile phone for the full early-Nineties effect.

The gold lace-style wheels look factory, but at 18 inches, they're bigger than any production ZJ wheel ever was. 33-inch BFGoodrich Mud-Terrain KM2 tires round out the package.

This is what the ZJ looked like when Jeep bought it off Craigslist.
