My kind of overlanding. Very cool.
Always wanted a baja bug, or a street legal sand rail.
As previously stated I used to LURK on here for years...rarely contributed but really consumed a lot of information...I always liked your biking threads....takes one bike dork to know one!
Hahahahaha ... yeah.
Off to the hammock rig for the night.
It's like pedaling in your sleep.
Wow! That truck is gorgeous. In my opinion the early Willy’s are one the best designs in the off-road realm. I bet that went anywhere you wanted.
I'm a sucker for the old stuff:
I just love the old stuff!!
I have a buddy with a late 60’s scout with the Sporttop he’d sell ya.
must....resist...I got two sons....14 and 16.....oldest wants a truck.....youngest will need something before too long...no more fun vehicles for Dad!
Yeah no joke. I tried to buy it from him...no joy. lol Can't blame him though.
Give of them your truck.
I like my truck. He can get his own damn truck! LoL!!
Thanks. It was, indeed.
I can't argue with that. It was a trooper. I hope -- and suspect -- it's still out there somewhere. I haven't seen it in 40 years.
Yes, it would do that, but it wouldn't always get me out.
I learned the hard way in the Wolf River bottoms in Memphis (just upstream from the Miss'ippi Rivah), when my friends and I tried to drive in to the squirrel hunting spots through creeks running into the Wolf. The mud wasn't a problem; it just powered through. The problem was when the front bumper hung on one side of the creek and the rear bumper on the back side. It wasn't a regular jeep, it was a pickup with a long frame.
Took a tow truck to get us out, and my dad had to drag it in with his jeep.
Took me a few minutes to find this on a backup hard drive
(video production eats gigabytes like a sugar addict eats Skittles).
I took this photo in the Wolf bottoms with two of my hunting buddies in the back. We were high schoolers then.
@Stone that’s a great photo!
Some cool rigs here for sure!
I spotted a really cool one a couple years ago but it seems I have since deleted the photo.
We had a Willy’s CJ2A on the farm for a while but sadly my dad traded it off. It was a navel yard series with a spool winch and 3 spd transmission
I’ve deleted a few as well. I was looking for an old FJ60 pic that apparently is gone now.
That’s an awesome CJ model. Go anywhere, just not fast. Unfortunately that’s the case with a lot of old trucks from our pasts.
I took a picture of this one that pulled into the gas station next door. Pretty ingenious.
Saw a really old bronco 2 this weekend but couldnt get any photos of it.
