Jeep Wrangler J7 :
Built off of a four-door Jeep Wrangler Rubicon, the Jeep Wrangler J7 is designed to have the basic appeal of military-issued vehicles. The Mopar team removed standard content including carpet, fog lamps, alloy wheels and the stereo system before adding front and rear steel bumpers, ‘helicopter hooks’, a heavy-duty tailgate and steel wheels. Off-road capability is increased with a Mopar 2-inch suspension lift and 35-inch Mickey Thompson tires. The unique Mustard Plug exterior paint is highlighted with Jeep Wrangler J7 graphics.

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.
Definitely one of the hottest vehicles on display at the SEMA show in the Mopar booth. Check out Autoblogs coverage here to see this beast! Stay tuned RR is compiling our event coverage and will start posting up our SEMA 2009 coverage shortly
