With the recent announcement that AM General is for sale, I got to thinking of what could have been, had American Motors Corporation (AMC) not sold to Renualt, forcingAM General to be separated from Jeep?
What if in AM Generalremained a wholly-owned subsidiary of AMC? Would we all be driving a version of the Land Runner?
Would we still have our solid-axle suspensions? What unimaginable alter-verse would we be living in?
Would we ultimately be driving what was known as the M151 “Mutt”?
I stumbled across a product posted on Facebook that I could have used to get out of the above predicament a couple of weekends ago, as well as use it to store my gear. It’s called Bogabox, and it looks like a neat concept for recovery tracks – https://www.bogabox.com/
And I would have a box for my gear that I typically have rolling around in the back of my Jeep!
Unfortunately it doesn’t appear that this product in available just yet. This is a Company based in Australia, and it appears that they did a Kickstarter campaign, however their web site and Facebook page are unclear as to how and when the Bogabox will be available.
Let’s reach out “down under” and see if we can get this product here in North America!
With the recent closure of Toys R Us, I got to thinking that we will no longer be able to peruse the aisles looking for that unique toy, nor can the kids test drive their first Power Wheels Jeep or Hummer! So I thought that I would post some unique toys and stuff that you may have stumbled across if you were able to wander thru a Toys R Us still.
And what cooler addition to your collection of green Army men, than a HMMWV Platoon!
When I was a kid, I built models and collected die cast of my dream vehicles. I am fortunate to own a Jeep now, however I can only dream that my silver Jeep Wrangler Sport would be built like this model! I think it’s cool that they left the Sport sticker on the model!
