Recently, the US Department of Defense awarded Oshkosh Defense a $6.75 billion contract to deliver 17,000 new Joint Light Tactical Vehicle (JLTV) to the military to replace their aging fleets of Humvees.

This bad boy comes with a GM Duramax 6.6-liter diesel V-8, a patented TAK-4i independent suspension, armor that’s superior to past Humvees, and is generally just an overall monster of a vehicle.

And, yes, we want one for our deer lease.
