    Default * * * * * JEEP Fan Club * * * * *

    I’ve loved the Jeeps ever since my childhood and been dreaming about owning & driving them. I have gone through many history books, spending many hours on watching any World War II documentaries/movies showing these hero Jeeps. Willys MB becomes my favorite and I have spent days & days on its research to get more and more info about. I just really dreamed of this Jeep when I was in school and I saw myself driving Willys. Since then I wanted to have my own Willys. Luckily my dream come true and God helped me to go for my Jeep Project and own one legendary Jeep. Till now I have completed 4 Jeep Projects (3 Willys MBs & One M38). Owning a Jeep and having a passion for Off-Roading made me think seriously about Jeeps and SUVs. But my Off-Roading desire was really fulfilled by the Willys MB Jeep.

    This Jeep passion is some thing which can be explained only by the Jeeper who love Jeeps and want to think about new and exciting additions and modifications to their Jeeps. Building a Jeep to ones own specs is more fulfilling than buying one.

    That’s way I decided to make a “Jeep Fan Club” here and who so ever loves Jeeps can share his experience, views, Knowledge, collection of information/material here in this thread. Any one can display his Jeep pics or the Jeeps he like or any other stuff related to Jeeps.

    This Jeep Fan Club is not limited to discuss only about Jeeps but ideas would be welcomed from fellow members to organize Off-Road Adventure Trips, Jeep Projects and modifications.

    Here is the pic of my 4th Jeep Willys MB Project:

    excellent idea, but it should have been called the 4x4 fan club so that we could post pics of our "daily drivers".

    Thank U very much Adil/Sameer Bahi for UR quick response. This will be the place where we can discuss every thing related to Jeep/4x4/Off-Roading. No matter if the pic or the info is being placed in some other thread before. Placing it here will give one platform to search any thing related to Jeeps.

    Sameer bahi the idea came of Jeeps that’s way choosed the name Jeep Fan Club. Will discuss it further with U and we can choose any suitable name, no problem.

    The need for a go anywhere reconnaissance vehicle was beeing felt by the Army since World War I and this promoted the appearance of several proposals over the years. After several tentative versions the specifications laid down by the Quartermaster Corps, on July 7, 1940, called for:
    A driving front axle with 2-speed transfer case including provisions for disengaging the front axle drive.
    A body of rectangular design with afolding windshield and 3 bucket seats.
    Increased engine power (presumably in respect to the Belly-flopper prototype).
    Means for towing.
    30-caliber machine gun mount.
    Blackout lighting.
    Oil-bath air cleaner.
    Hydraulic brakes.
    Full floating axles.
    Wheelbase of 80".
    Maximum height of 40".
    Maximum weight of 1275 lbs.
    Approach and departure angles of 45 and 40 degrees, respectively.
    Must reach 50 mph on hard surface.
    Special bracing for a pintle hook setup.
    No aluminium to be used for cylinder head.
    At least 4 cylinders.
    8 of the 70 vehicles to made had to be four-wheel-steer.
    The invitation to submit bids was sent to 135 U.S. automobile manufacturers to produce 70 vehicles; the small Bantam company managed to meet the deadline delivering the pilot model in September 23 1940. Although it was 730 lbs. overweight it was judged good. Willys-Overland submitted crude sketches of their vehicle and underbid Bantam, although they could not meet the 75 day delivery period; after adding penalties for this the Bantam proposal was lower and this company received an order to produce 70 Model 60 or MKII.
    Willys Overland submited two units of its pilot model, the Quad, in November 11; this had many of the features from the Bantam as did another prototype from Ford, who delivered two of its Pigmy in November 23. Both Willys-Overland and Ford were given free access to Bantam's prototype and blueprints, which goes a long way to explain the similarities.

    With all three prototypes satisfactory, the Army decided to order 1500 of each for field evaluation, with deliveries to begin in early 1941; each of the prototypes should suffer alterations to remedy deficiencies brought out by the testing. The modified versions were the Bantam 40 BRC, the Willys MA and the Ford GP (G for Government, P for 80" wheelbase).

    In July 1941 the War Department decided to adopt one single model; Willys was selected because it bid lower than the others but the MA had to be redesigned in view of the experience gained with the tests. The redesigned model was named MB by Willys but the contracts to manufacture the vehicle went both to Willys and Ford, where it was named GPW (the W was added to refer to the Willys motor). Meanwhile, about 1000 Bantam 40 BRCs were built for the Russian Army

    Is the thread specific 2 jeeps (like the CJs,open jeeps) or does it cover new jeeps/SUVs ?
    Slow down and enjoy life. It's not only the scenery you miss by going too fast - you also miss the sense of where you are going and why.
