I no longer have an AMC Eagle, but I am still a fan.

After our fiasco with the Toyota Corolla I got for my wife I believe I am done with Japanese vehicles.

Dude you are preaching to a choir member that is close to becoming an AMC Minister if you know what I mean.

 That's the good thing about other people's fresh eyes.  Sometimes I check something over and over, then post it.  The next day there's typos and spelling mistakes all through it.  You'll see me edit my posts pretty often when I'm reading through an old thread and want to get rid of a few extra letters or whatever.

In the late 70's to early 80's time period, every model of Jeep was available as a Laredo.  The primary defining element of the Laredo package at first was a chrome grille.

At first only the CJ was available with the Golden Eagle option, but like the next year that package expanded to the pickup and Cherokee.  I only know about this thing because I was working at a Jeep dealer at the time, when I was a teenager.

I have not spent a lot of time there yet.  I like most of what they did and like how they relate other jeep models to the one you are looking at.

If one wanted to argue  ::)  then one could trace the suv craze all the way back to 1946 with the all steel 4x4 wagon from willy's.   ;D   You could trace all jeep wagons since from that model. ::)

I would disagree with your arrows regarding the big cherokee and the smaller cherokee xj.  ;)  The use of unibody construction in a four by four was so significant and radical departure from previous jeep models that I would trace the xj from AMC's Eagle car model.   :) ;D  The eagle proved that a unibody four by four would work and hold up.  :o  Even though the eagle models were designed so that AMC could still make cars yet meet federal emission standards by having the cars labeled differently because of the inclusion of the 4wd. ::)

Jeep very definetly got the idea of a unibody 4x4 from AMC!  ;D

You are correct Thomas.  The XJ should not have that arrow coming off of the big Cherokee Chief.   Sticking the AMC Eagle in as the "test bed" for the XJ's would drive some Jeep people crazy.  That means I will have to do that.  I wonder if we need to start out with the Jeffrey/Nash Quads and FWD trucks as some very early predecessors?

If you wanted to, you could also go back past the Willys wagon, to the Chevy Suburban of 1935, of which several hundred had four-wheel-drive.  And don't forget the Dodge Power Wagon panel delivery from around 37-39...

Generally the FWD is considered the beginning of commercially viable four wheel drive in the US.   The story on the Quad truck is that Jeffery sent engineers up to buy an FWD for study, then after looking at it, just sold it and told their engineers to start from scratch.  The result was the Jeffery Quad-  "The truck that Drives, Steers and Brakes on all four wheels!"
