DANG. If I had to get a jeep assembled under fire in heavy combat I would want these guys on my side.

I guess this is the army version of the Navy drill with the cannon, where they diss-assemble an old cannon and limber and move it from one spot to another

Reminds me of those old jalopys that clowns ride in the circus, the ones that fall apart when they sneeze but magically are all back together for the next show

If it were an actual military issue jeep it would be impressive. As a fun exhibition it is cool

I'm sure the jeep was modified for this drill. I doubt it would be safe for highway use. Think I only saw them remove 2 wheel nuts per wheel.

It is a stunt. A good stunt, but still a stunt.

Nothing on the Jeep was attached, just put in place. No wiring at all.

Years ago at a Holiday show, my MV club set up to assemble a WW2 Jeep from a big truck full of parts to a running Jeep in one day. We didn't make it. We wired the frame, mounted the engine and fitted all body parts but didn't attach them. We had four good amateur mechanics working six hours. Alot can go wrong making a Jeep from parts. We had fun though.

The owner left that day with an 80% complete Jeep. He was happy. We got some new members, had a good day.
