The second model in Jeep’s "Moparized" vehicles line-up is the Nukizer 715 - an all-purpose truck that pays homage to the Kaiser M-715 truck. Based on a Jeep J8 four-door military vehicle, the Nukizer 715 gets a new front clip produced in carbon fiber, a wheelbase stretched to 124 inches from 116 inches, a unique soft top made by Bestop, and 38-inch BF Goodrich Mud Terrain tires mounted on Hutchinson beadlock wheels. Mopar also used an aftermarket AEV Brute pickup box built for a TJ to convert the vehicle to a pickup body style.
Equipment list includes: a Warn 9.5XP low-profile winch equipped with a Master Pull synthetic winch line, Warn air compressor, Terraflex dual-rate front sway bar, and Garmin GPS Map 640 navigation unit.
Chrysler LLC today unveiled the Jeep J8 multipurpose vehicle at the 2007 Defence Systems & Equipment International (DSEi) military trade show, making the legendary vehicle available for reenlistment in active military service. “Jeep vehicles made their original debut in 1941 for military duty, and have built their reputation with more than 65 years as the world’s benchmark for off-road capability and versatility for civilian and military vehicles,” said Thomas Hausch, Vice President – International Sales, Chrysler LLC.
