Since I haven't been around much, here's a simple one for you.

Name the three jeep models since 1942 that do not have an alpha-numeric model designation.  For instance the Universal Jeep came in several designations like CJ-7, CJ-3B, and CJ-5.  The wagons have designations like XJ, WK, and such.  I'm looking for three models that don't have a string of letters that those in the know use to name them.

Annnnnnnd, go!

Senior Class (C'mon..Stump Em') / Protect the lights!

Here's an odd set of questions...

Willys-Overland, its successors, and other jeep manufacturers have used several ways to protect the headlights on their vehicles.  A few of these methods have been copied by aftermarket manufacturers to protect headlights on more modern jeep vehicles.

This model protects the head lamps with deep, round bezels attached to the grill.

These two models had the lights attached to a rotating assembly mounted behind the grill.

This model had the headlights mounted behind a heavy gauge wire which was some of the only steel in the front end of the jeep.

And this model had a similar steel wire over the lights on a "traditional" jeep grill.

1.  The Willys BC didn't make it to production but this quarter ton served the same design criteria during the Viet-Nam War era.

2.  This vehicle was based on the VJ Jeepster and had an all aluminum body.

3.  Willys built the Quad, Bantam built a Reconnaissance Car, and Ford actually built these two pre-production prototypes submittals.

4.  The CJ-4MA was only shown as a prototype but the production version was this model.

5.  The "Creep" was shown in 57-8 but the civil service it was intended for ended up later buying this ubiquitous model.

6.  In 1990, the Jeep Freedom was based on this production model.

7.  The 1996 Jeep Casablanca concept was based on this production model.

8.  A four door concept vehicle called the Dakar eventually became this popular model.

9.  Of the three manufacturers who supplied early prototypes for what would become the WWII jeep, this one built fifty of their rear steer version.

10.  In 1954, Willys showed a model called the Stand Drive but two similar production models later had these Toyota-like model designations.

11.  The Ford XM-151 became this military quarter ton.

Most early civilian jeeps developed from military models that were "demilitarized" to become civilian models, however, sometimes this went the other way.  Name four quarter tons that were developed first as civilian models before being drafted into the military.

I'm Dave.

I've got a 62 AMC M422A1 Mighty Mite.  It's stock--as it should be--so if you've seen one, you've pretty much seen them all.  Except for unit markings and small differences that only another Mighty Mite owner could notice, you'd typically be hard pressed to tell one from another.

My wheeling rig is a 99 TJ Sport on Currie 9+ axles, chrome moly shafts, Detroit lockers in both ends, 4.57 gears, and Warn locking hubs in front.  It's got a Currie Currectlynk steering set up, Currie Anti-Rock Sway Bars at both ends, and a Rock Krawler suspension with a four link in the rear.

The daily driver in the household is my girlfriend's 99 TJ Sport.  Other than her goofy looking tube bumpers (which she is adamantly against me changing, by the way), her jeep is pretty stock.  (It comes in handy when I'm trying to figure out where disassembled parts go back on mine.  :P )  I won't let her keep a snatch strap in it since she goes to Daytona Beach every Saturday and all the numbskulls with stuck rental cars would keep her from ever getting home while she tries to extract them all.

Let's make this simple:  Name as many domestically available jeep models as possible that do not use a gas burning engine and name that engine.  Attention to detail on this one will get you the big internet cookie!

(Example mid-eighties XJs were available with a Renault 2.1 liter turbo diesel).

Hi.  With Rick's help I got registered for your forum today and am enjoying looking around, especially at the Senior Class Trivia section since I write hundreds of trivia questions every year for our event's two show announcers.  They use them during the day so that they can move "minor" prizes quicker and not have them taking up more time at the awards ceremony. first question is...

Name as many jeep vans as possible.  (This should include any iteration of Willys-Overland or its descendent companies like Willys-Jeep, Kaiser-Jeep, AMC-Jeep, etc).  I prefer that you name them by individual model designation so we're clear which model you're talking about even though at least one model didn't get a letter-number designation.  Do not include ZJ, WJ, WK, etc station wagons/SUVs.  They're not vans.

Off the top of my head, I can name five domestically produced models of jeep van.  (And M170 ambulances don't count.)
