For the month of May 14th, 1948 Israeli Independence Day.

How much the emotions of seeing a Jeep in Jewish hands for the very first time meant a lot to Jewish survivors and how the Jeep symbolized freedom ...


Rubin and his comrades from the 650th were part of the British army’s Jewish Brigade, an outfit formed two years earlier and made up of Palestinian Jewish volunteers. At the time of the seder in 1946, with the Nazis defeated, the company’s soldiers were busy siphoning off British army supplies and borrowing trucks to help the Jewish refugees who had been reaching the brigade’s troops in growing numbers since the German surrender.

These were broken people who were often reduced to tears, according to contemporary reports, by the sight of armed Jews and their brigade patch, a golden Star of David.

In one witness account, a woman who was among 4,000 newly freed concentration camp inmates in the Bavarian town of Landsburg-am-Lecht walked up to one of the unit’s jeeps, lay her head on the Star of David painted on the hood and “sobbed like a child.”

It just doesn’t look too military or rugged with those OE fenders.

Pretty cool. I just wonder why they would go to the trouble of putting a Diesel, a Dana 60 Rear on Leaf Springs, and a Dana 44 front on the coils, and keep those small tires on it. You don't exactly need a D60 with 30.5 inchers. I know, I know, it also said the 265/75/R17s were optional. IMO those should be the starting point, and 35's optional.

Take this issue up with AIL , the Israeli Jeep factory in Nazareth.

I would like to add to this a much faster & stronger engine that gets better miles per gallon ( m.p.g. ) on the Israeli made Jeeps.
