Jeep Snow Plow in Japan

Currently in Japan and ran into this "Jeep" snow plow up in the Nikko mountains. I am not sure how old it is but it's in great shape. I say "Jeep" only because it says it on the sides but I have no idea what it really is. Turbo Intercooler....Hmm it could be a Yugo in disguise LOL!

While everyone else was taking pics of the mountains, wildlife, and waterfalls, I was the only one taking pics of this rig.

Seeing this makes me want to drive my JK instead of the tiny eco rental car we have!

Thought it was cool and wanted to share.

I think its a Mitsubishi built Jeep... They built them there post war and Mitsu did the kicked down front fenders. Its right hand drive too, the first ones were left even though they drive in opposite lanes there.

I googled mahindra. Quite interesting. I didn't even know that another company made jeeps. It is interesting that they were producing "new" jeeps based on the cj design. They used small diesel engines in them.

Here is a facebook page dedicated to them:

Here is another pic of the Mitsubishi produced Jeep. Its an actual Jeep, you can see the logo stamped into the hood. Its in the OP's pic too, but its harder to see.

I wonder when they put in the turbo? The one I saw had Turbo Intercooler on it.

technically you are all correct.

It is a mahindra / mitsubishi jeep.

although both were licensed by kaiser willys to produce them.

It's based off of a CJ3B.
This is from this Wikipedia page http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeep_CJ

In this picture, note on the grill that there is a mitsubishi logo stamped in next to the Willys script

That would be the first convertible (soft top) snow plow I've ever seen.

Here are a few more pics of that 'Jeep' from a different angle. I didn't notice the Mitsubishi symbol while taking pics. But after you guys were talking about it on this thread I did notice the emblems on my other pics.

Clearly states 'Jeep' and Mitsubishi (Logo).'
