General George S. Patton and the Jeep Wrangler are such powerful American legends that when a tuner shop builds a six-wheeled version of Jeep's iconic off-roader and applies Patton's name, the only surprise is that that the shop is Chinese.

The original World War II Willys Jeeps rolled eastward through Europe, toward Berlin, alongside Patton's Sherman tanks, so the general would surely appreciate this rough-and-ready take on his stalwart workhorse, which is called the G. Patton Tomahawk.

Output from the standard 3.6-liter V6 engine is boosted with a RIPP supercharger, while the bodywork is coated in olive drab bed liner material. Bead lock wheels are typical of such off-road machines, and there's a Warn winch to extract the Tomahawk in the unlikely event it encounters conditions it can't dominate.

Since it's Chinese, there is a star in the center of the Tomahawk's grille. But at least they had the decency not to make it red on this all-American warrior.
