The original Jeep, built by the Willys-Overland company in 1938, was designed to go anywhere the U.S. Army went - from the jungles of Bataan to the deserts of El-Alamein to the hedgerows of Northern France. After the Second World War, many former GI's had become so attached to this tough little vehicle that they bought them for themselves from Uncle Sam as the country demobilized during the late 1940's. Eventually, Willys was sold to the Kaiser Motor company, which produced the "CJ" (Civilian Jeep) model for the general public. Today, the Willys-Overland-Kaiser company is part of Daimler-Chrysler, and the descendants of those original Jeeps are found on outback roads all over the world. If you do a lot of off-road driving but still want to keep that Jeep nice looking, consider installing Bestop Fender Flares. These fit over your wheel wells and prevent finish-destroying mud and gravel from being flung up onto the sides of the vehicle. Made of durable polyurethane, they retain their color despite exposure to the elements, and provide up to 5-1/2 inches of coverage. Bestop Fender Flares are a great investment in the protection of your vehicle's finish. Motor hobbyists always want outstanding support when looking at quality car parts.
