This Jeep Willys is quite simple in build but very effective. It has pendular suspension, 4 wheel drive, 2 wheel steering and uses one XL for propulsion. It is controlled by a Lego PF remote. It was created in 2009 but I have rebuilt it in 2010 and applied some improvements in steering system, suspension and body.

The front suspension needed shock absorbers that would have higher stiffness than gray ones but lower than yellow ones. So I came up with idea of increasing stiffness of Lego shock absorbers, you can see the details on the video below:
