    Always wanted a baja bug, or a street legal sand rail.

    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.

    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. :eek: 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. :oops:

    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.

    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.

    3B454FAC-F3E2-43F8-9AE3-AAE2A61E76DA.jpeg I took a picture of this one that pulled into the gas station next door. Pretty ingenious.
