J8 Not for American Joe Average

Well, the J8 Jeep commando edition is finally in production for overseas only...turbo diesel, leaf springs, Dana 60's, bigger payload, and probably a real metal hood that will resist dings from bird $hit...why can't we have one???

Just wait a few years... they will be sitting in millitary surplus yards.

Lets just hope that the J8 makes it to American soil before the General Tso mall crawler does!

Seen one, sat in one They had then on display at the Euro Jeep Camp I went to the other week. They are for millitary use only from what I could gather. Yes they do have a 44 in the front and 60 in the rear, they have twin batterys mounted in the rear. The air intake is designed to let the engine run in a sand strom for up 5 hours, I have a couple of photo's from under the hood, taken late at night on my mobile once I get them of the phone I will post them.
