Moab Easter Jeep Safari 2010 Moab Rim Trail in a Willys Jeep

Easter Jeep Safari 2010. Taking my Willys MB on the Moab Rim Trail. I did this last year with my JK so I let my buddy the "Troublemaker" from Illinois have a little fun. Only the V8 engined Jeeps made it to the top of the Sand Dune at max throttle. The MB did it at half power!! Go to www.jeepingoffroad.com for the Willys build up and more Jeeping adventures.

Jeep History: "Autobiography of a Jeep" 1943 United Films 10min
more at http://cars.quickfound.net/ "Describes the designing of the Jeep to meet military needs of being compact, light weight and maneuverable over rough terrain." http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeep Jeep is an automobile marque of Chrysler (itself a subsidiary of Fiat). The first Willys Jeeps were produced in 1941 with the first civilian models in 1945, making it the oldest off-road vehicle and sport utility vehicle (SUV) brand. It inspired a number of other light utility vehicles, such as the Land Rover which is the second oldest 4-wheel-drive brand. The original Jeep vehicle that first appeared as the prototype Bantam BRC became the primary light 4-wheel-drive vehicle of the United States Army and Allies during World War II, as well as the postwar period. Many Jeep variants serving similar military and civilian roles have since been created in other nations. Bantam Reconnaissance Car When it became obvious that the United States was eventually going to become involved in the war raging in Europe, the U.S. Army contacted 135 companies asking for working prototypes of a four-wheel-drive reconnaissance car. Only two companies responded to the request, The American Bantam Car Company and Willys-Overland. The Army had set what seemed like an impossible deadline of 49 days to supply a working prototype. Willys asked for more time but were refused. The bankrupt American Bantam Car Company had no engineering staff left on the payroll and brought in Karl Probst, a talented freelance designer from Detroit. After turning down an initial request from Bantam, Probst accepted the job after being asked again by the Army, and initially working without salary, went to work July 17, 1940. Probst completely laid out plans for the Bantam prototype, known as the BRC or Bantam Reconnaissane Car, in two days, and the next day estimated the total cost of the vehicle. On July 22, Bantam's bid was submitted, complete with blueprints. Much of the vehicle had to be assembled from existing off-the-shelf automotive parts, and the custom four-wheel drivetrain components were supplied by Spicer. The hand-built prototype was completed in Butler, Pennsylvania,[9] and driven to Camp Holabird, Maryland, for testing by the Army on 21 September 1940. The vehicle met the Army's criteria, but its engine did not meet the Army's torque requirements. Ford Pygmy and Willys MB The Army felt that the Bantam company was too small to supply the number of vehicles it needed, so it supplied the Bantam design to Willys and Ford who were encouraged to make their own changes and modifications. The resulting Ford "Pygmy" and Willys "Quad" prototypes looked very similar to the Bantam BRC (Bantam Reconnaissance Car) prototype and Spicer supplied very similar four-wheel drivetrain components to all three manufacturers. Fifteen hundred of each of the three models were built and extensively field-tested. Willys-Overland's chief engineer Delmar "Barney" Roos made design changes to meet a revised weight specification (a maximum of 1,275 lb (578 kg) including oil and water). He was thus able to use the powerful but comparatively heavy Willys "Go Devil" engine, and win the initial production contract. The Willys version of the car would become the standardized jeep design, designated the model MB and was built at their plant in Toledo, Ohio. The familiar pressed metal Jeep grille was actually a Ford design feature and incorporated into the final design by the Army. Since the War Department required a large number of vehicles to be manufactured in a relatively short time, Willys-Overland granted the United States Government a non-exclusive license to allow another company to manufacture vehicles using Willys' specifications. The Army chose Ford as the second supplier, but building Jeeps to the Willys' design. Willys supplied Ford with a complete set of plans and specifications. American Bantam, the creators of the first Jeep, spent the rest of the war building heavy-duty trailers for the Army....

I ended up trading it for a 55 Chysler New Yorker with a 331 Hemi. Videos of it will come in the near future.





1968 AM General 2 1/2 6x6 Ton Multifuel Truck Resurecting The Toyota
Hey guys, apparently people are having a hard time telling that i was being sarcastic when i said, "I don't think you should be taking this thing off road, This is NOT an off road vehicle" I'm not exactly sure how people can't tell that that is an obvious joke about a 6x6 diesel truck with military tires. I mean, jesus, its even camo! Why would something be camo, unless it was going to be driven in woods, and have to blend in with trees and all... hahah, i don't know guys... i know i said it serious-sounding sort of, but come on now. So anyway, back to the video description: The Toyota has been back in the woods since i had to clean up the field. So Drew borrowed this beast of a truck so we could get it out of the woods. These Tires on the duce really don't do well i the mud. luckily once it digs down, it gets enough traction :) so we plan on getting the toyota going again soon. with any luck :) (update: the woods had flooded bad, about a year before this video was shot, and the toyota was underwater to about 3/4 or so up the seats... so the engine filled with water, and is completely siezed. Its the 20R out of a 79 i had. I plan on finding a 22R for it if i can.)





Jeep Willys with Tank Tracks
Bolt on tank tracks on a modified Jeep Willys powered by a Buick V6 engine. The Tracks were manufactured by a company called "A. F. Wagner Industries Inc." of concord California. They were made sometime during the mid 60s and there was only 6 sets made and were apparently expensive and thus may be the reason there were so few made. They are called "Wagner-Trac" and were made specifically as a set of tank tracks for a jeep with a wheelbase of 81 inches. The wheelbase is not adjustable so the wheelbase is critical and just like a tank you would have to install turning brakes to drive the Jeep because the steering is null and void as soon as you bolt them on. They are all steel construction so were probably designed for offroad only.





FWTV: Moab Uncovered Part 5

Bob Bower and Tony Becker visit the Jeep Expo in town. The crew gets it first look at Hell's Revenge, a trail with giant drop-offs and other obstacles. Kevin Hawkins takes us on a tour of extreme trails just outside the city of Moab and explains the consequences of driving these trails without a guide.





Mission to Snow
Spring snow wheeling of 2011. All of the roads that we ran were legal and open for motorized vehicles. We were the first ones up there so it was trailbreaking all day. The drifts were 10' rollers in spots, one right after another. Running 0-2 psi on this trip. No powder, it was all crusty, windblown drifted ridge running so staying on top was the challenge of the day. Great time, thanks everyone.





JK Experience Area BFE Helldorado Extreme 4x4 Trail Run by Jeep JKs at Easter Jeep Safari
Area BFE is a rock crawling and 4x4 heaven. These Jeep JK's are some of the best built if not the best built in the world with some of the best drivers and supporters of the off-road community present. The trail being run is upper Helldorado. The first obstacle is known as the gatekeeper, later is the squeeze, followed by the waterfall at the end. Entry to area BFE is free of charge, but donations at the gate are appreciated.
