Nukizer M715

Anyone seen this? Just wanted to say that its awesome. And I'd love to park one in my driveway next to the 2013 grand wagoneer I wish I could afford.

Yeah, I've seen that before. I know I would be first in line to get one, but Chrysler has no plans of producing it. I believe the next Jeep pick-up will be a modified Wrangler.

It's been all over the boards for a while. Looks slick, but I always find it funny that some concept vehicles like this aren't even street legal.

Also funny when articles like that don't even proof read...

I believe the nukizer is just a JK with a body kit, similar to the Brute for TJs...

Yea, this has been around for quite awhile. I honestly think it is ugly as can be. Like its trying too hard to imitate the real M-715.

It seems like any time that Jeep gets a halfway decent concept they don't build it yet they put a Jeep nametag on some AWD Dodge and all the sudden it's trail rated

I saw a video of it a while back, I believe it was on TopSpeed. I think it is absolutely awesome! IIRC they were saying you would be able to get it with a 2.8L turbo diesel. There is no way I would be able to afford one...

If Jeep would sell the J8 diesel in the US, then maybe they would have something interesting, the current line up does nothing for me though.
