    That is really cool. When you click on the Jeep's pic you get a history lesson about it.

    Thanks for sharing.

    Nice chart.
    The Jeep pictured & labeled Commando is really a Jeepster/Commando a.k.a. J/C C101.
    The actual Commando is nicknamed the "Bullnose" Commando and is the C104. It doesn't get as much love, most J/C owners compare the front end of a Commando to a Scout or Bronco.

    I really like the proportions of the Willys MLW-2. What are those, like 18" rims.

    So Willys led the way to what we see commonly today; 36" tall tires, and 20" rims! I also like the higher, larger front fenders, and how the hood sides were removed, still keepng a low-profile hood.
