Somebodys' bad answer, should prompt someone else to give the right answer, but no answer at all helps no one.

HAHA! Just because you can do something doesn't mean you should. I have to respect their originality if nothing else lol

Cool show. The military Jeeps are interesting. The M151 is great. Two WWII Jeeps next to a M38A1. A M38 next to a M715. YJs too ... they were a bargain a decade ago; maybe appreciating now.

Florida certainly has "interesting" taste in things.

The M38 looks huge next to the two flatties.

Sorry to pick nits.

You realize that the M38 is a flat fender Jeep, and the M38A1 next to the WWII MB/GPWs has biscuit fenders, like the CJ-5. There is an M38 above, next to the M715. The easiest way to tell the difference: civilian flat fenders like the CJ-2A, CJ-3A and CJ-3B as well as the M38 have 7-slot grilles. Both the M38 and M38A1 are Korean war vintage. The WWII Jeeps either have the "slat grille" built up from steel bars, aka slats, or the 9-slot grille stamped from sheet steel. The 9-slot stamped grille was developed by Ford to ease manufacture. Only the earliest WWII Jeeps have the grille made of separate steel bars.

Yeah, obviously I referencing the M38A1 (CJ5) next to the two flat fenders. CJ5's are by no means big, but the much wider windshield makes them look larger.
