Israeli Jeeps?

Am I mistaken, or does the wheelbase on the Wrangler look longer than normal? I find it surprising that they would be using Unlimited for their military... or I guess they could be.

Jeep has been producing long wheelbase Wranglers for export for years, I remember seeing them waaaay long time ago.

If you look close, it is a long wheelbase YJ.
