The Willys MB and the Ford GPW, both formally called the U.S. Army Truck, 1⁄4-ton, 4×4, Command Reconnaissance, commonly known as the Willys Jeep, Jeep, or jeep, and sometimes referred to as G503, were highly successful American off-road capable light military utility vehicles built in large numbers to a standardized design for the United States and other Allied forces in World War II from 1941 to 1945. (from Wikipedia)


this is my first mod for SnowRunner and it's coming after a long time of trying and learning how to make the best model possible with the best handling and behaviour possible.

of course i'm open to suggestions and critiques as they will improve my future releases.


there's nothing much to say about this vehicle as i guess anybody who loves off roading knows her as the grandmother of all modern 4x4 vehicles.

and a special thanks goes to Tazmanyak for the beta testing and his precious tips, Poghrim and everybody else who helped me out on Discord (maxmike181, ThePuppyMaster above all)


Terms of Use:

editing, sharing, and altering in any way the model is strictly forbidden, it took me hundreds of hours to get to this, so if you have any suggestion for changes on the model itselft just leave a comment down here, i might agree and update it!

editing of the xml files is allowed ONLY for personal use, it took me a lot of time and effort to deliver the best vehicle possible.

so again if you have any suggestion on how this can be improved i'm all ears!

AMAZING mod!
One problem though, jeep has difficulty driving in a straight line on hard surfaces (maybe also in other terrain, but it's hard to tell when offroad already affects driving straight). I think this is a bug/unintentional. It feels like wheels are not centered.

This thing is so great - it feels so authentic to drive around. The detail and textures are great, AND it's actually a very capable vehicle! Far from fast, but it's hard to get stuck!

Great Willys Jeep, I love it! Would you consider making a CJ2-A? as far as I know Only the grille changed, I dont believe the hood or fenders are any different from the Willys MB, but I could be mistaken. Anyways, Love your work and looking forward to more content from you!

hey guys thanks for all the messages!
glad you like this little dude.
i just released an uptade with some fixes.
the console version might come in the future, as for now there's no way since it's branded.
as for what i should or might add as addons just check the whole description and you will find your answers :D
and looks like the rifle rack can be mounted both ways!

Just slap the ANK brand onto it and you just might get it onto console
