    A very good letter on the ability of the JEEP with an experienced driver. The places where he drove the jeep in war-time reminded me where my dad served in WWII. Who knows maybe they knew each other! Thanks for posting the picture with the letter. I always laughed when I was young and my 16-18 year old friends who bought a 4×4 saying they will never get stuck. I always told them that with a 4×4 you will get stuck in more-inaccessible places! Still holds true today.

    When you are stuck in a 2WD, you are stuck. When you are stuck in a 4WD, you are REALLY stuck!

    Here’s a funny coincidence: I know a guy named David Mann. He takes pride in his stories about driving officers in an M-151 Mutt during peacetime, about 35 years ago. He recently asked me to help him find a CJ-5. I handed him several ads for local CJ-5’s just yesterday. I’ll give him this article tomorrow. He’ll get a kick out of it.
