"New"/Remanufactured M151 Jeeps complete/as kits

Ya'll seen this? Company out of florida has managed a way to get demil's M151 drivetrains and put their own replica bodies on them. Can buy complete or as a kit. Just thought this was pretty cool. Called the "Growler", the DB1000 looks pretty badass too. The hummer things are kinda ghey though.

Yeah, the "kit" version is like $7500 or so. I just thought it's kind of cool that someone's found a way you can get a semi-authentic M151A2.

OH!
Right on, I didn't see the kit one.
That's not too bad.... assuming it's engine and all.

Out of curiousity, though, why would they want to show a picture of it having to be towed out of a mud pit??
