wasn't it jack Brabham who, when asked about his GP Career, claimed once that he was only alive as he was thrown out of the car in bad crashes

Eisenhower said "Damn jeeps are killing more of my soldiers than the enemy".

Certainly hundreds were killed and thousands injured. A lot to do with young blokes driving someone else's vehicle.

And the amphibious version. Everyone wanted one but nobody could figure out anything useful for them to do. Too heavy and had to use the winch to get out of the water on anything steeper than a boat ramp. All ordinary jeep chassis and running gear.

This is the reason many were killed. All jeep owners automatically correct on braking but emergency stops can create a wild swing. Why they did not move the idler to the chassis like all other vehicles until 1947 has me beat.
