The front end is updated with a 1968 Jeep Gladiator pickup truck conversion, with a lower approach.

Custom Jeep #7 - Kaiser Jeep M725, “The Supply Ship”
This is a 1967 Kaiser Jeep M725 military ambulance transformed into an off-road support vehicle. Under the hood, it’s got a 392 Hemi engine and a TF727 three-speed auto with a JPP Dana 60 axles and long-arm coilover suspension. It’s painted Desert Tan but with all these quality custom upgrades, it definitely won’t blend into the background for your next Jeep Desert Safari. If Jeep ever puts this one into production, let’s hope there’s room for a party with optional two-row and three-row models.
Custom Jeep #8 – Willys Adventure 54 Wagon, “The Elk-inator”
Maybe not our most sleek selection, but this Max-bilt Willys wagon certainly has the most character. The fender is protected by a set of Wyoming elk horns; its hood is colored by rust; its luggage rack is made out of junkyard iron pipe; and its seats are custom upholstered from a truck stop blanket. While it’s not exactly the lap of luxury, it sure beats driving pickup trucks. Adventure awaits…
Custom Jeep #9 – Woody, "Pinocchio"
This custom build from Jonathan Ward of Icon 4x4 is a 1965 Wagoneer with a shove-nose style grille for an extra-long snout. They gave this baby a new chassis, an E-Rod LS3 engine with 420 horsepower, Dynatrac axles, and a tunable sway bar. The interior custom features include new aluminum knobs, faceplates, upholstery with custom stitches, and trim with the original factory steering wheel for a melding of old and new. The exterior has newly designed vinyl woodgrain, a classic “Wagoneer” decal, and Land Rover Tamar Blue body paint. Unlike the real Pinocchio, this custom Jeep doesn’t lie.
Custom Jeep #10 – Wrangler 4xe "The Skeletor"
The most stylish of Jeep’s custom Wranglers, this concept Wrangler 4xe is remarkable for its Ivory Pearl exterior and JPP tube doors that give it a haunting bone-like quality. It’s a plug-in hybrid with JPP 2-inch custom lift kit, Fox suspension, and 37-inch tires. It’s also lit: it has JPP 5-inch off-road LED fog lights along the base of each A-pillar and its underbody illuminates the ground. This one is so stylish, it’s bone-chilling.
