Thanks Guys!🙂 You may have heard about the “Jeep in a crate” legend/scam?


I picked up the built jeep for $5. I’ve built one CJ-2A and didn’t want to go through all the work correcting this one too…so I took the easy way out. I had to scratch build the seats and the brake drums, and adapt the die cast tires from another project to some jeep rims. I spent more time on the crate than I did on the jeep.😜

Super project! I saved photos of a real one in the crate for years hoping to build this one day.  You beat me to it!  Glad someone built it!

Very kewl.  I remember watching a video years ago of the Army dropping those and the assembly.  The Jeepney's in Southeast Asia and elsewhere are probably some of what the Army dropped back in the day.
