Wraps off the first Jeep concept in Moab

You don’t have to be in Moab long to see the latest new parts, accessories, and concept vehicles!The guys at Mopar Underground (Chrysler’s Skunk Works equivalent) pulled the wraps off the first Jeep concept a few days early. The Nukizer 715 pays homage to the Vietnam era M-175.

The new war horse shares its under pinnings with the Egyptian J8 military vehicle and is powered by the same  2.8-liter four-cylinder turbo-diesel. It produces 158 HP and 295 lb-ft of torque mated to a five-speed auto tranny — giving it a towing capability of up to 7,716 lbs. It sits atop 38″ BF Goodrich MT’s and narrowed Dana 60 axles taken from the Dodge Ram parts bin. Other goodies include a chopped JK windshield, Warn winch, custom grille, lights and a long list of one off parts.

Stay tuned for more Moab Coverage and Jeep concept vehicles!

Now here is the official press release: The Jeep Nukizer 715 is an all-purpose truck that pays homage to the beloved military-only Kaiser M-715 truck. With a military-issue Jeep J8 four-door, the Mopar team converted the vehicle into a pickup body style by adding an aftermarket AEV Brute pickup box built for a TJ. To increase the size of the vehicle, the wheelbase is stretched to 124 inches from 116 inches. Enforcing the brand’s iconic M-715 is a new front clip produced in carbon fiber that re-creates the characteristic forward slant of the M-715 truck. To top it off, Bestop provided a unique soft top which artfully captures all of the quirks of the original. [...]

    That Nukizer is killer. I think I’d trade my TJ and my Tacoma for one of those. Well, maybe not my TJ, but my Tacoma at least. :)
