The M151 Multi-Utility Tactical Truck (MUTT) entered service in the IDF in the early 1960's and serviced until 1997 when it was replaced by the Hummer. The M151 remains in service in diminishing numbers in the reserve units.

In the IDF the M151 was deployed in three main configurations - open, closed and ATGM mounting platform.
