Before Mercedes first unveiled its G 63 AMG 6x6, California-based Tyrant Motorworks converted a 2012 Jeep Wrangler to six-wheel-drive. Developed mainly as a promotional vehicle, it's now about to be replaced by a new-and-improved model ... so it can be yours, if you place the winning bid on eBay.

First of all, it does indeed have "true" six-wheel-drive – all six of the wheels are powered. Not much is available in the way of performance specs, although we do know that it has a V-6 Pentastar gas engine, an automatic transmission, and various features such as leather seats, air conditioning, and power windows, seats and locks. It also has a snorkel, should you want it to stay running while driving through deep water.

If you're hoping to scoop it up in one of those legendary "no one else bid on it" eBay scenarios, though, you may be disappointed. It has a reserve price of US$85,000 ... which is still far less than the Mercedes.

Should you like it but not want to buy used, Tyrant Motorworks is now working on a Hemi-powered version, which may become commercially available down the road.
