In 1972 Kaiser’s new parent company, American Motors, lengthened the wheelbase to 104 inches and renamed the revised Jeep the Commando C104. The front end was also altered to accept AMC engines from a 232 cubic inch straight-six to a 304 cubic inch V8, and the Commando received a full width grille that distinguished it from earlier Jeeps. 20,000 Commando C104s were built before it was replaced by the full-size Cherokee in 1974.
