Jee Ayaan Nu Amir.
Welcome to our forum.
Lovely Jeep you have there and they look great with the M151 "Mutt" Jeep rims.
It is heartening to see the original work horse still going strong and the best part is that you are using the Jeep for what it was meant to be used for. Off-roading.
Please put up your experiences you have had in restoring and keeping the jeep on the road.

That is one fine looking jeep. The yellow paint accents every curve and corner. It is truly a classic work of art in my opinion. I hope you post more pictures soon.

One question, what are those round things directly under the headlights and slightly inboard? Lights? Horns? Torpedo tubes (joking).

The performance of Ford GPW & Willys MB is amazing.
We have witnessed excellent Offroading performance of these two Jeeps.
We almost do every easy n tough tracks while offroading.
Yes there r different terrains.
Right under the headlights r indicator lights.

Aamir,

Wonderful jeep and amazing driving. Jeeps had best articulation and light weight made it go places. It amazes me how competitive is this vehicle even after 60 years!!!

Those days fundamentals of off road vehicles were very strong, which aren't today. They dont give basics like enough ground clearence at first instance and call a vehicle an off roader. Sad!

Long livethe Icon- Jeep!!

No alteration on front or rear axles.
It is all in original form.

We have many 4x4's in our club but the performance of Willys, Ford , Land Cruiser & land Rover are excellent.
Willys & Ford compete with LC & LR even though they ( Willys & Ford ) dont have Differential locks n new accessories.
