Bubba add on or aftermarket body, looks like add-on from a distance.

Don't know about the fender flares but with that hard top. All he is missing is 2 doors and a air conditioner. :D

Ah Ah Ah..... don't be too hasty in condemning this as a bubba job. There were several test-M151s which featured an experimental flared-fender design. The idea was to install wider tires and the flares were to prevent mud-spatter all over the vehicle (and driver). :D

And here's one of them....

Maybe but I doubt it, notice that the flare on the OP's mutt are right on top of the factory lip and the military ones are above the lip.
