USMC jeep with wire cutter

I think I know the answer but did USMC or any jeeps in the Pacific get fitted with any form of wire cutter? Any reference pictures if they did?

I don't remember ever seeing a photo of one. There were different conditions in the Pacific.

I guess it is still possible an Army jeep transfered from Europe could have been in theater.

Yes I figured pretty much the same, not to many stretches of long roads in the pacific
