jeep boat??

I'm just curious, would it be possible to make a 94 jeep wrangler float on water?

ya. you've never seen the monster trucks go out and float on water before. You just need some giant monster truck tires...

It is possible. However, "Float" may be an understatement...

I like this one better. It still looks like a Jeep.

The original "Jeep Boat"

I thought you guys might like to see this. This is a restored WWII Marine Corps Amphibious Jeep. Sorry the photos are dark... my camera had a problem with the overhead lighting.

Take care,

if you have enough money to throw at it, anything is possible.
