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!
