Thanks to long-time reader Renegade for sending over some additional links about the Jeep Nukizer, one of Mopar's latest "Moparized" vehicles.

Top Speed has a brief synopsis and photo to go along with the standard press release.
...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...


Over at PickupTrucks.com, they actually got a test drive in the Nukizer (as well as some great photos), and they were impressed:
The 2.8-liter four-cylinder VM Motori turbo-diesel used in the J8 platform was kept in the Nukizerís DNA, but it was upgraded with a new tune to provide more horsepower and torque while being coupled to the factory four-speed automatic transmission. Weighing in at a moderately hefty 4,500 pounds, the Nukizer still felt nimble, and there was no seeming lack of power or torque coming from the diesel.
