In Honor Of The Military Jeep

I would like to start a thread that is to honor the Jeep in Service to our Country!
when you come across a Jeep photo that shows how faithful and how important the Jeep was to our servicemen while fulfilling their duty Please post it.
I would love to see what everyone comes up with.
Jeep.....More than an American Tradition it's an American Hero that served American Hero's!!!

I'm currently rebuilding my 87 YJ in honor of my grandfather who was 10th mountain division World War 2. Going to paint it correct WW2 1945 markings and color, complete with his infantry and division.

I know this is the Colorado area so I hope you don't mind me chiming in. I'm trying to talk the forum admins to add another forum area to cover Military Jeeps and their restoration.

In the meantime, I came across this the other day. It was on a plaque in front of a beautifully restored Willys MB and thought it was pretty good:

This Old Soldier Honorably Served our country during WWII , Korea, and beyond.

When this old soldier was discharged from military service he took on a variety of jobs such as a farmer, firefighter, tow vehicle, snow plow, and many more.

When not at work this old soldier provided an outlet for many families as a recreational vehicle to explore the great outdoors, and provided many fond memories for years to come.

After this old soldier was used and abused and could no longer serve his owner, he was left out in the fields and pastures of America and throughout the world to rot and rust in the same elements he once faithfully transported his fellow soldiers in with tenacity and reliability.

When these old soldiers were found in their deteriorated state by men and women who knew their valuable and rich history, they decided to bring them back to life so others could remember and honor their faithful service to their country.

So when you look at this old soldier standing proud before you in all its glory, take a moment to remember the sacrifices of the many men and women who served and are currently serving our great nation.

Please help me preserve this old soldier by not leaning on or touching him.

Thank You!

^^ Awesome!

I wanted to start a Jeep Rescue to get those Jeeps that have been put out to pasture back out there playing on the rocks. I see them parked when we are taking our Jeeps to play and they look so sad... Someday I will do this

Wartime Military Jeeps

Although this M151 is really a Ford rather than a Jeep, it is what the Army called a Jeep and assigned to me in Viet Nam.

Great pic, thanks for sharing.

'Nam wasn't the first Jeep for Ford

This is a Willys:



This is a Ford

I picked up a 1945 ford gpw this last summer already half restored. Although I haven't had alot of spare time to work on it yet it's a super cool project. Boxes and boxes of parts to figure out.

Sweet, you aught to start a build thread, love to see some pics.


The progress on my Willys has slowed considerably lately. Probably have 6 months to go.

I lost my dad in Feb. He was a WW-2 vet who was part of a medical unit. Similar to what became known as a MASH unit during Korea. I have several photos.

The 1st is the CO driving a Jeep. This was taken either right before, or right after Germany surrrendered.



Not a Jeep, but my dad's 4X4 ambulance.

I've seen that too. My dad crossed the Rhine on a pontoon bridge riding in the front passenger seat of a half-track. The Germans were throwing every thing they had at the bridge and dad said it was the scarest moments of the war for him. he couldn't swim a bit and was afraid of water.

He scratched the time and date into the dash with a knife to commemorate the event. Every time I see one of those I check for the carving. Would be neat to actually see the one dad rode in.

I'm pretty sure these are Jeeps. SAS Desert Rats I believe. Just look at all the fuel cans.

I've heard that they could only fire it to the front or rear. If they fired to the side, the Jeep would tip over.
