Jeep prototype - a military vehicle

The photos earlier captured by spy photographers make the mystery of the Jeep truck solved. The Jeep pictured is a military vehicle not a mule for the JT concept truck.

"The Jeep you see here is one of the units built to sell (hopefully) to the Egyptian military. As you can see, the rear doors are welded shut and, on the inside load floor, there's a pickup-style steel bed. It's powered by a diesel, has rear leaf springs and a rear Dana 60. I understand that, while there are a number of these built, the deal hasn't been made yet with Egypt (or Israel). There are no plans to offer this in North America." said Phil Howell, Editor-in-Chief of Off-Road Magazines.

So the right-hand drive layout make sense now.
