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.

Brings back memories for me too. These were simply amazing vehicles. This one looks amazing too. How about some more pictures?

Hackberry, not your typical choice. Hard to work I feel.
