For myself, I have decieded that the coolest Jeeps on the planet are the M67x trucks from the early to mid '60s. For wheeling with a family of 4 with equipment I think the m677, m678 or m679 are the ticket. Now I am just starting to educate myself on these trucks. I have found one Forward Control page for the jeep trucks
If any of you know any good web resources please post them up.... My searches have only found a hand full of photos of these military trucks.
I thought this would be a good place because this crowd knows jeeps and apeartly spends plenty of time on the web.
For those who are not familar with these jeep trucks here is a clicky
Watch the John Wayne movie "Hitari!". They use a pair of CJ-6s and an FC in the movie. Great scenes of chasing different animals across the Serengeti with the CJs then loading them in boxes on the back of the FC.
Re: OT/ wanted info on Jeep M677, M678, 679 FC trucks
Watch out lifting FC's! The 150's came stock with a cast iron counterweight over the rear axle to keep it from pitching over onto it's face every time you hit the brakes. If you want to find one to lift, look for the 170.
Keep looking for FC sites. There's actually a lot of resources on the web. I can't find my old favorites disk, or I'd help out.
