    Day one of war with Canada: All tanks, jets and guns dismantled and neatly splayed out, with a note "you lose the war, eh hosers?"

    that`s pretty impressive, those jeeps were actually constructed to be field repairable in a fashion that only a small group of soldiers could fix it in the heat of battle. Now if they could do that to say, a modern day jeep of Humvee in the same amount of time I`d be even more-so impressed.

    Wait wait, something doesn`t make sense here.

    What about the brake lines? What about the drive shaft? I didn`t see any of this.

    So many things, no matter the car, have to be in a vehicle before it can be called, a vehicle.

    I mean don`t get me wrong, that`s still awesome.

    but it still gets to me, how did they drive it away without a driveshaft?

    They made the Willy`s jeep to be so simple that it could be worked on and get on its way while in the heat of battle. I doubt this is an actual jeep from the 40s I would like to see how well they could do this on a real jeep. they are missing quite a few things as one poster said the drive shaft and the brake lines.. Unless it doesn`t have brakes lol.

    FauxFox: At the very begining, Do you see the guy messing with wires and such under the hood ?

    He is detaching some things called quick connects/disconnects, He is disconnecting the battery, brakes, and steering. Btw, The Jeep is not using hydraulic brakes, It is using a wire like the `emergency brake` on most cars.

    Both drive shafts are right there, attached to the differentials (the jeep is 4 wheel drive so there are 2 drive shafts and 2 differentials)

    I didn`t see any brake wires or whatsoever. With such brake system wires are external and pretty obvious.
    What about the fuel lines and cooling system?

    I think they spent weeks modifying the jeep to be able to do that trick.

    LOL i was just thinking the same thing!! Insert slot a into slot b. then insert slot c into a. then find out the piece with slot c came broken, so you have to take the damn thing apart and take it back to ikea.

    I cant build sh*t.

    Precisely, like the clips of people taking out the engine of a beetle, putting it back again and driving a few meters in about a minute; they simply lock open the carburettor, they never handle any throttle cables.

    Maybe some cheating.. but. they still drove in, broke it, fixed it, drove out again in less than four minutes.

    When I break something it normally stays broke.
    Its called refucturing.

    radoinc: Just because you don`t see it 20+ feet away in a grainy youtube video doesn`t mean they aren`t there. The gas tank, battery, and other non-engine parts are in the body shell of the jeep.

    Why do I feel like I`m trying to explain a magic trick here ? There is no magic, Just good design and a well rehearsed crew.

    @CrakrJak Well, I`m sure about two things: the brakes are removed (btw they ARE hydraulic, just checked) and the cooling system is empty. The design is good, no question about that, but those guys cheated and that kills a lot of their awesomeness.

    radoinc I never said it was a `normal` Willys Jeep, Of course it`s been modified, That`s pretty obvious.

    To say that`s `cheating` ? I don`t see how. Do you know of any rules to the sport of Jeep disassembling and rebuilding ? If you find any, Post a link.

    Actually there are rules for dismantling and assembling. When dismantling you have to start with the whole thing and end up with parts. Assembling is the opposite. The Jeep wasn`t actually assembled neither in the beginning nor at the end.
    So yeah, I think they cheated.
