“Today I put my Willys MB project up for sale. It is a project but has quite a few sought after pieces if you are into rock crawling. I’ve had this since 2018 with the hopes of creating an off-road vehicle I could rock crawl, but still be street-able. As you can see, that hasn’t happened yet and while I’d love to get to it someday in the near future, I wanted to give someone else a shot at fixing this thing up right. I’d like to sell this as a complete project but for the right price, anything can be bought.

Pros
Roller
Willys MB tub, grill, fenders, hood
M38 windshield
Spicer 18 transfer case core(needs rebuilt)
Short width Dana 30 axle with factory disc brakes from a CJ5

Pine Ridge Bison Farm Videos

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

You might remember that last May Ann and I had a chance to visit with Dan and April and their kids at their Eastern Montana Bison Ranch. At the beginning of October, they began creating videos of their ranch experience.  They have currently produced four videos with plans for more. Though jeeps make a small, short appearance, mostly it is about learning how their lives have changed as they learn to do without the things most of us take for granted, including utility-backed running water and electricity. So, check them out!

Here is their Youtube page: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCsidyGphAz3QzDx1qanIJbQ

Here is their first video:

If you want a good look at their bison, this video of theirs show them wrangling bison with a Jeep Cherokee:

1968 Postcard of Tour Jeep in Virgin Islands

I just purchased this Tour Jeep postcard off of eBay that shows an FC-170 tour jeep in the Virgin Islands in 1968. I searched for additional information on FC jeeps in the Virgin Islands, without success.

Back in 1987 (like 10 lifetimes ago!) I toured St. Thomas in a tiny Suzuki Samarai and in the back of a taxi. The FC would have been a much cooler way to see the island.
