japan, yes. it's actually a CJ3B. jeep gave mitsubishi permission to build it over there some time ago. so in essence, mitsu. built a real jeep...they just stamped their logo on the grille, but they say JEEP on the sides of the hood. pretty interesting part of Jeep's history.
a guy two streets down from us in the neighborhood as a black one in pristine condition with about 4" of lift and 33s.
