Yep. Pricey, but I'd love to have one of these. If you look over the spec sheets, you'll find it's basically a Dodge Ram mated with a JKU and powered with a Hemi or a diesel.

You used to be able to order the 4 door version as a civilian through AEV. It had a dedicated webpage. The webpage is no longer however, so I'm not sure if they're still doing it.

Here's a good article: http://www.automobilemag.com/feature...c/viewall.html

Edit: It appears that AEV is indeed no longer offering J8s: http://www.expeditionportal.com/foru...p/t-72675.html

Cool video, but horrible format. I couldn't watch on my iPad/iphone where I normally check this site, and on my iMac it video was tiny and couldn't be expanded. But, this could be my refusal to learn how to back door computers, which is why i switched to mac.

Run "Jeep j8" through YouTube. My recollection is that they have the video on there in the more typical video size.

Egyptian military surplus maybe--I don't believe they've ever been used by the US military. I could be wrong though, and if I was THAT WOULD BE AWESOME on this point.
