What could be cooler than a patina-coated, copper-plated rock-crawling vintage Jeep? One from Hauk Designs (the same guys who did the Hauk Hellcat) that uses a coal-rolling Cummins inline six-cylinder diesel engine tuned up to 700 horsepower and 1,200 lb.-ft. of torque.

This is the Rock Rat, Hauk's impressively badass desert machine built using a '47 Willys CJ-2A body matched to crazy modern components like the 44-inch Pit Bull tires on B.A.D. beadlock wheels.

There are so many amazing details to absorb, like the copper fuel injector lines, the fire truck's pump handle repurposed into a shift lever, and a goddamn ram's skull in the steering wheel.

We can't say what life after the apocalypse will be like, but it is safe to say that the Rock Rat is ready for it, no matter how thins turn out.
