These look like thery are built super tough for mining duty.
Unfortunately they only have 6" of travel and a top speed of 20mph!

very cool, I wonder if they would sell the body and frame so people could build it how they wanted. Toyota LC 70 series are outfitted as mining trucks quite often also.

Wow! A "flip up hood!" Amazing! :D
Notice, however, that it also seems to have a single-speed T-case and a 3 speed semi-automatic transmission.
Actually, I kind of wonder why this kind of transmission hasn't caught on in the rock crawler circles, it seems to me that rock crawlers would appreciate both the clutchless aspect but also the ability to manually select gears and the compression braking ability that modern auto trannys don't have.
Cool looking vehicle, though. I'm guessing no relationship to the jeep despite the appearance.
