During WWII, the U.S. Military enlisted a new light reconnaissance vehicle the iconic Willys MB now know as Jeep.
Which is celebrating its 75th anniversary. And to commemorate this milestone, I took a road trip to the 390th Memorial Museum. The museum is dedicated to preserve the history of those who bravely fought during WWII. Housed in the museum I found a restored B-17G called ” I’ll Be Around” when I looked inside this historic aircraft, I was taken as to the bravery of the young men ( most in their twenties) that flew in this aircraft as it provided little safety from the enemy.
In addition to the aircraft I found on display the iconic 1941 Willys MB ( Jeep ) one of the first to serve alongside our military. Produced from 1941 to 1945, they evolved post-war in to the civilian Jeep which inspired a category of 4WDs as well as several generations of Military light utility vehicles. To mark its 75th milestone the 2016 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited design pays tribute to the classic Willy.
Christmas Day I drove up to Northern Arizona in pursuit of snow and adventure, with its command-Trac 4×4, heavy duty suspension with gas shocks you can drive the Jeep Wrangler in any terrain. Water, Mud, Sand, Rocky hills and snow are simply no match for the Jeep.
Equipped with power outlets you can blow dry your hair dry ( if needed) after a snowball fight. During warmer weather you can ride it top down and love the removable doors.
In its interior you will find 6.5-inch touchscreen display with Uconnect handsfree phone connectivity and Sirius XM Radio and you can pump music to the back of the jeep.
Love the Jeep Wrangler 75th special editions exterior. Check out the body- color fender flares, winch-ready front steel bumper and its power dome hood.
