jeep boat??

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

Absolutely! Piece of cake. I say go for it.



Then again, what could go wrong?

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,

Check out "YJ V6 Conversion" if you want to see a frame up restoration of my 1992 YJ.

Check out "WWII Jeep Photos AND Restoration of..." if you want to see the original JEEP in action...
