Dont know so much about it. It is based on a JK and it is called Commando

I would love to see them doing full time duty.

Are these actually being purchased and used by the US Army? Or is simply an army-like custom job by Hendrick Dynamics?

I'm thinking this is a one-off custom job. Can you imagine being in a desert convoy with no windshield? Not to mention the complete lack of human and vehicle component protection. A person with a rock in their hand could take out an occupant or the radiator...

Not saying it isn't cool looking, but I would feel bad for a soldier who had to drive this outside of a green zone.

From reading the article a few weeks ago. Hendricks built and presented the idea and the army is demoing a few of them. Not sure there's a contractor more vehicles at this point
