Jeep – The Original Off Roader
When it comes to off road vehicles there aren’t many names as well known as Jeep. Now Chrysler’s sport vehicle division, “jeep” has become a generic name for any rugged 4wd vehicle, especially military models. That all goes back to the iconic World War Two vehicle. Early in the war the US Army bought several different types of light, 4x4 open vehicles, but the one that caught the imagination of the GIs was the Willys-Overland MB. Somehow – nobody’s quite sure, but it might have come from an animal in the Popeye cartoon strip – it became known as the Jeep, and after the war the name stuck.
A History Of Ruggedness
Jeep have moved on a bit from the original military models, but one thing hasn’t changed – their designs are still built for real off road performance, and that’s perfect if you want to explore Australia’s countryside. A Jeep can get you places most other vehicles could only dream of, whether you go for the Spartan but agile Wrangler, the big Cherokee or the crossover Patriot and Compass.
A Step Further
However as usual Jeeps come from the factory set up for road use, because for most owners off road capability is something they like to have but probably aren’t ever going to use. If you’re reading this site you’re probably the other kind of Jeep owner. You want it to be able to go anywhere and you’re planning on doing it. That means you want to get every ounce of performance you can out of it. One way to do that is with accessories to replace factory parts or add new capabilities, and that’s where Tough Toys come in.
