Here at Ft Bragg we have all kinds of weird vehicles, that have no armor at all on them. They aren’t used to fight from. They are so the infantry guys can move faster and carry more stuff. They still plan to fight on foot like they always have Right now they have everything from Flyer GMVs, Polaris DAGORs to MRAZORs. The only armor they have is the vests the guys are wearing. It’s a lot better than walking

Don't forget that there is a massive military market outside the US. Jeep is not uncommon at all in a number of the world's militaries, and most can't afford to armor all of their vehicles. Not to mention, when we first got HMMWVs in SF, armor kits didn't even exist... I eventually had to steel some armored doors off of a USMC TOW truck.

Nobody mentioned the Black Rhino-esque wheels yet! Sign me up!

Anybody know if those wheels are actually made now and by whom?
I'm standing by too! Waiting if someone out there knows if the wheels on the XMT concept are out there for sale somewhere.

I found this article and it seems to answer all our questions. A great read for sure!

  • Wheels are made by Hutchinson, 17-inch by 8.5-inch wide with bead locks.
  • Hutchinson is a company that specializes in wheels for the defense and security industries. Armoring, bead-locks, run-flats—they have you covered. If those wheels look familiar, it is because Black Rhino makes knock-offs of the Hutchinson wheels.

Holy Cow, took me 3 episodes of Dexter to do this. Had to take the grill bar off the smittybilt xrc, then put the XMT on it.

Thoughts?
