A Jeep Wrangler Unlimited originally, it went under the knife which drastically transform its look, turning it into a Hummer HX. Granted, the HX never saw the light of production and it was not exactly a military transport to begin with (it was a concept and stayed that way), but you can’t deny that this faux Hummer HX oozes with thick military flavor.
