Jeep Cherokee Chop Top: Opinions?

So I've been looking at "chop top" jeep xjs lately, like the one below. I like the look of them and the utility of the small pickup bed.

I know it's a major mod, but I was thinking that with a removable cover, like the on in the photo, except designed with an optimal curve and perhaps made from rigid materials, that you could see some serious drop in Cd.

In addition, you could create some nice mounts for a full boat tail & start your tail further up on the jeep, making the total length of the car w/ tail shorter than it could otherwise be. Not an improvement in Cd, but perhaps in handling and ability to park.

What's everyone's thoughts on this? are there significant gains to be made here compared to adding a full tail to a stock xj?
