Jeeps in January 2020

• CATEGORIES: Features, videos

Scott Gilbert shared these pics and the video from Joe DeYoung’s annual winter jeep gathering. Looks like a good time! A shout out is also in order to Richard Darr from Washougal Classic Jeep, who supplied some discounted rebuild parts.

As part of the event this weekend, Joe rebuilt a 1 1/8 shaft D18 to raffle at the Spring Willys Reunion (May 15-16, 2020). They’ll also be building one live at the show.
