This is a custom build experimental truck started from a Military Deuce and ½ - M35A2 Jeep Corporation 2-1/2 ton truck. The base truck was overhauled by the military, as everything had been replaced or changed on the drive train ie: engine, transmission, all the axles and transfer case. This truck has 4,000 miles and less than 50 hours on the engine. The basic prototype concept of this truck was conceived from the Detroit Arsenal build of a never produced XM 381A2 4x4 planned to replace the small Jeep and still shaming the current Hummer. The engine is a turbocharged multi - fuel diesel, and therefore will run on anything. This engine will run on any flammable liquid—tequila, regular gas, heating oil, Chanel #5, used engine oils, diesel, trans fluid, jet fuel, alcohol, fry oils, bio diesel, and kerosene.
