Ok, I just went in and bought the book. Didn't know it existed, but I had a 3A for most of the 1980s. This book will add to what little I know about jeeps now.

And it also has useful tidbits on the MB, M-38, M-38A1, CJ-2A, CJ-5 and more. Guaranteed to leave you more JEEP smart than before you purchase it.

Reminder, learning Jeep is more than just reading about MB's and GPW's, there is much Jeep knowledge to be gained by books like the excellent CJ-3A book by Bob Westerman. His book goes a long way to adding missing pieces to the "Jeep Puzzle".

It does, there are a few photos and time lines in reference to production dates. It also mentions a Parts Manual. I recommend it as it may contain a tidbit that you were not aware of.
It's worth the cost. Tell you what, if you are not satisfied with the book I will pay for it (Just your one copy, tho. :wink: )
