Same Manufacturer and factories
PCT Industries is a major Chinese manufacturing group. They operate under multiple brands: Premium X, Ixo,Ist and others. Plus they contract make models for partwork firms like DeAgostini, Hachette, Altaya etc. In addition anyone can buy a batch of models from them if they meet minimum order numbers and they put them in the buyers trade box - Whitebox is a good example of this where PCT make models sold by a German car sales website under the Whitebox brand.All the castings have been seen before in partworks or Ixo ranges.

Here PCT have clearly decided that the market would take another batch of the Jeep models at a lower price and they have decided to sell them as Ixo their 'mid price' range. If a partwork wanted the same casting PCT would do it for them too in a different colour and probably with less detailing to fit the 'budget' marketplace.
