I think he means ACTUAL one-ton capacity, like the old Comanche, Ranger and Canyon/Colorado, not the 3500s we call one-ton trucks nowadays.

What do think the odds are of the truck having a built-in generator that can power my tools/campsite/house?

I dunno, most of the full-size trucks have household outlets in their beds, as do the Frontier and Tacoma, at least as an option. I mean, you can't run a ton of things off them, but you can definitely run a few power tools or some small appliances off them. The 2011 Patriot has one now even, I think-it's not completely unreasonable.

Several years ago Dodge was going to come out with a Contractor series Ram pickup that had a generator but it never happened. A few details part way down the page here:


Specialty Dodge Rams: Contractors Special, HEV, military

I remember that pretty cool idea, almost as cool as the power wagon concept from the late 90s

Some people need a reality check. The Nukizer isn't and will never be made for us. It's not that hard to take notice that the model they built is completely unrealistic and impractical to hit the market and for mass production to civilians. You really think they are going to start pumping out a truck with 38x14.50 inch tires, a D60 in the rear, 5:38 gears and ARB lockers? Yeah right. If anything, the Nukizer would be sold like the J8. Extremely overpriced and in very, very limited numbers. They would need to completely re-design the truck to fit into todays standards and to accomodate the needs for what people want in a truck so that they can use it on a day-to-day basis.

They are, and for foreign militaries, but for a period of time AEV ( They negotiated with Chrysler on it) obtained kits from them and assembled together the Jeeps, left it up to you to decide how to install the engine and transmission, then sold them to whoever was willing to dish out 50K or so to buy it. Maybe someone can verify, but I'm pretty sure they weren't even street legal for civilians who bought them and had to jump through a ton of hoops just to get it street legal...

The Jeeps that were sold to us are a lot like the ones built for foreign militaries and what you see in pictures that they were advertised in. There were two models though, one in a four door configuration and the other in a two door. I believe the four door and two door are built on the same chassis as the JKU, however the the interior is gutted out and and most of the other specs are entirely different. Some including D44 up front, D60 rear, the frame is more heavily braced, rear suspension uses leafs, no carpeting, the option of either a diesel or a Hemi, etc. Here are pictures of the two models, hopefully they turn out good haha...
