Military vehicles have always caught our attention here at Autoblog Canada. It may be the fact that they are amazing to look at and see what kind of on-board devices they have, or more likely the fact that we fantasize about being at the helm of them every night while we have dramatic Call of Duty dreams.
The Jeep NuKizer 715 pays as a prodigious tribute to its forefather, the Kaiser Jeep M715, which was a military-only produced vehicle back between 1967 and 1969. The "Nu" version definitely steps up its game and proves to be a viable sibling for this day and age.
Jeep started with a military-issued J8 four-door and let the Mopar team take over. They quickly converted it to a pickup body style by adding an aftermarket AEV Brute pickup box built for a TJ. The NuKizer 715 isn't just for looks, it is built with function in mind, hence the reason why Mopar then added in Jeep Wrangler rock rails and off-road bumpers, a Warn low-profile winch, a front sway bay and a Garmin GPS nav system. One of the other key features installed are the Dynatrac Pro-Rock axles which offer the highest ground clearance of any axle housing for Jeep 4x4's and work perfectly on Wranglers with large tires and low body suspensions.
Thank you Jeep, we now know which vehicle we will be manning in our dreams tonight. You can see high-res images of the NuKizer 715 in our gallery above.
