Willys MLW-2 concept. This was an interesting concept that was killed off due to the war winding down and various technical issues. The wheelbase was stretched to 92 inches(just 1 ½ inches shorter than the future CJ7 would sport), rode on 36″ tall tractor tires which required the fenders to be highlined and sported a whopping 11.75 inches of ground clearance. The axles were almost 10 inches wider than stock and had 5.38 gears versus 4.88′s that were standard in the MB. 

I wish this would’ve made it into production, after all, who wouldn’t want a Flat Fender with more room and ground clearance?
