Hey Forum Addicts,

Just came across this AWESOME pic of my Grandpa overseas with his ride back in WW2. Curious if anyone recognizes this vehicle - is it a Jeep (Willys MB maybe)? It appears to have a backseat so not sure?

This picture is going on the dashboard of my JKU as a reminder that I wouldn't have what I do today if it wasn't for brave guys like him.

Thanks in advance for the help!

PS - notice it says Jersey Bound on the rear quarter panel :)

Agreed. That looks a lot bigger than anything Willys made back then. Really cool picture. Thanks for sharing.

It looks like the Bantam Army Jeep BRC-60. Nope, it does look exactly like the WC 56. Both are close but I agree with 4Jeepn.

I think we have a winner!! Thanks so much guys. Really appreciate it. Knew I asked the right crew here.

Next question - what size lift do you think he had on there? ;)

My respect to your Grandfather and the greatest generation.
^This. A million times this.

Unfortunately the U.S. is overrun by pajama boys who call themselves "men".

Hahaha, love it! I'm sure a lot of us had fathers/granfathers that served this country well, hats off to them and the real man generation.
