Psuedo-HMMWV Custom Off-Roader

The seller claims this was built for desert warfare at a cost of over $100K; but doesn't say by whom nor how that adds up to a $9,900 asking price today.  Regardless, it's certainly odd.

This was apparently built to be seriously durable and the images back that up, what with beefy axles and suspension.  Power comes from a Jeep Liberty Diesel - not huge displacement, but likely torquey enough.  Oddly, the seller claims front and rear air conditioning; so one can participate in desert warfare in comfort, if not style.

There's no way this will be street legal; so how can we assess the value?  Perhaps $10K seems like a good deal if you have lots of private land on which to enjoy this thing...

Ingress/Egress much?

Top-hinged front doors are, well, distinctive.  Overall styling is purposeful.

An inverter system is included in the sale and we guess that is/was hooked up to the outlets on the rear of the vehicle.

Interior is mostly cage; so this won't carry a lot of people and maybe not even a lot of stuff.

Gauge 'cluster' is an all-in-one unit.

Here's that rear.  One could construct a flat floor atop the tubes...

Presumably, this diesel is in the front.
