It’s no secret that plenty of technology originally created by and reserved for the military eventually makes its way into the hands of civilians, and that is certainly true in automotive.
From the G Wagen to the Hummer, lots of vehicles were created for military use and can now be found cruising around city streets. We found three such vehicles in our latest submission pool for Dude I Love or Hate My Ride @Home Edition.
The first rig is a 2000 Hummer H1 with some beautiful modifications. A fully Line-X sprayed body keeps this things protected, while the onboard tire inflation system and huge 37-inch tires make airing up and down a breeze.
Second we have a new Ram Power Wagon. No, the current truck as it sits today is not a military machine, but the nameplate has its roots in WWII. Dodge produced thousands of trucks for the US military, and once the war was over, the brand decided to market just such a truck to the public. Thus, the Power Wagon was born.
Finally, we can’t have a military video without talking about Jeep. The entire brand was founded thanks to its roots in WWII, and the original Willys Jeeps were the first mass-produced four-wheel drive vehicles for civilians to buy. In our video, we see a brand new Jeep Gladiator, not exactly like those old military Jeeps, though the recipe is similar: body on frame, four-wheel drive and good off-road.
Make sure you watch the video above to see all these rides and let us know in the comments below what you think of them.
