After catching the Assiniboine, I decided to head over to Chelsea because my mom wanted to see some wildflowers and I wanted to kill some time until my next ship. I ended up stopping at the rest area just out of Belleville. And I saw something that I see in this area fairly often but I'm not usually in a position to take pictures.
Anyway, the Wrangler is what I consider a real Jeep as it is probably the most direct ancestor to the famous Jeep from World War II.
The Willys MB (or Jeep) was developed prior to our entry in World War II after it was determined that the military needed a light four wheel drive vehicle. Almost 600,000 Jeeps were produced by Ford and Willys during the war. It continued in service through Desert Storm (at least).
