I have been wanting to try these toys for years. Do you have to make the steering wheel, shovel, etc…?

Those are great! I’m just a bit partial to Jeeps, that’s where the “CJ” in CJWillie came from. I’ve had Jeeps for years and have always wanted to make one from wood. Maybe now I’ll get started. Thanks for posting!

Those wheels may be hard, but wow what an impact they have on the appearance of the jeep! Well done!
