The hood and front bumper with bull bars looks cool.

Nice, Looks like it is setup for the urban landscape. I hope they find plenty of buyers for them. :D

Coupled to a six-speed development of the standard HMMWV four-speed automatic transmission, and with larger 335/65 R 22.5 Goodyear G275 MSA tyres, current testing shows improvements to fuel economy of about 15 per cent, acceleration of 20 per cent, and maximum speed of about 40km/h.
I can probably increase my mileage too if I only drive it at 25 mph...

Where do I find spare 335/65r22.5 tires?

How do I get my Happy Meal at the McD's drivethru?

To me it reads that top speed will be increased by 40km in addition to faster acceleration and better fuel economy.

It could be.
How about 40% increase in wheel travel? It must be down travel. That thing in pic has about half the clearance i do above thd tires.

A2 front bumper is under that big bumper.
No a/c condensor vents. They are covered up. Fuel filler is moved to aux fill location.

Find out more about the "optional" 6 speed. Maybe we can swap that in...

I'd be interested if anyone knows where to buy one of those snorkels.

If I remember correctly wasn't the GEP P400 the foundation of the SCCS power plant. I believe it was produced in long block configuration which did not include injection pump or induction and was based on the 6.5L platform (primarily mechanical injection pumps). The NXT 360 article claimed electronically controlled. I wonder if we will see newer style injection pumps and computer controlled injectors?

Perhaps some upgraded turbo options as there currently aren't a lot for center mount 6.5's?
