I'm as big a fan of utility as anyone but that thing is hideous, it looks... obese. Not just large, but plump and cumbersome.

The current Massif has been out of production since 2010.

It's been suggested that the next-generation version of the J8 will spawn civilian Iveco and Jeep variants to replace it, but that won't happen until the Wrangler is refreshed for 2016/7 at the earliest.

the Massif had a pickup variant that I like a LOT. I would accept this as a Jeep but would prefer that the Iveco brand just came to America under the Mopar banner....

Iveco won't be coming over as a brand. Bits of it will be showing up in the Ram Professional range eventually, in all likelyhood, and they may form the foundations for Ram building Class 8 trucks in the future.

The Massif isn't all it was cracked up to be anyways. It was basically an '80s Land Rover Defender. Outdated suspension, terrible ride, poor articulation and a low GWVR. Buy a Power Wagon if you want large off-roading truck.
