Chuck wow, I love that jeep it is awesome. When i first came in the army i was assigned a driver for the First Sargent and i drove a jeep and trailer with the shape just like that. Even had the shovel and the axe i put on the jeep before i went out. Fantastic job.

I like how the wheels/tires have a sort of “muddy” look.

No doubt humvees are superior in many situations—- but to a child of the 50s NOTHING says American military ‘can do’ like a Jeep. Great replica of a great machine.

Thats why the US post office started using Jeeps. The most popular vehicle with very few changes since it original design. Excellent replica. Excellent post.
