Hello all, I picked up my new Willys Sport last Thursday evening. Drove it to work Friday, went off road in it Friday night. Nothing real serious. It's rainy season here in FL. so pretty much every where off road is wet mud and sand. Did some water fording, deepest part was maybe 2 feet. I put it in 4 wheel drive for the first time. It was nothing for the Wrangler, it never hesitated or felt like it was going to get stuck at all. It most likely would have made it in 2 wheel drive.

Now it was pretty muddy and wet, other off road vehicles may have struggled but the Willys laughed at it. Next morning went up to Jacksonville beech to visit some family, had breakfast then over to green cove springs to visit more family. Then down to palm coast and visited more family. All wanted to see the new Jeep. LOL. Got home around 8:30 that night a went close to 280 miles.

A lot of it was on the freeway, getting the wife used to the tire noise (Doesn't bother me) it does vary depending on the road surface, a couple times it was pretty loud. Preparing her for the Nov. trip to the mountains.

I love my new Willys, I am so looking forward to the next off road adventure. I am thinking about calling in sick here one day and doing some exploring. I do need to be a little better prepared though, so I feel a shopping spree coming on. LOL.

That took me on a ride through my childhood. I grew up in orange park, and moved away 17 years ago.

Congrats on your new Jeep!

I had a 2020 2 door sarge green Willys Sport that was an absolute pleasure. Nothing on it but AC & Towing. Manual everything else. The simplicity of the entire thing always put a smile on my face.

Enjoy it!!

Did some light off-roading yesterday. Just trying to get a feel for it. Little water mostly just sugar sand. Ran into another off-roader of the hard shell variety, probably a better off-roader than me, but a little slower. Lol.

Welcome to another Jeep on the Space Coast! I think that the Willy's package is the best overall value. I was able to get my Rubi used before prices skyrocketed but I was originally on the hunt for a willy's.

Bama, congratulations on your new Willys. I ordered mine also, start to finish it took les than a month. Mine is a base Jeep though, the Willys sport. That might of had something to do with how quick they got it done.

Catiajockey, I agree with you, the Willys is a great package IMHO. It will do everything I need it to do for years to come. Very happy with it so far.

Your pics and enthusiasm made my morning. My JLU Willys is supposed to arrive on the 20th.
I also ordered Sarge Green. It just looks like a Jeep color.
Have fun with your Jeep.
