There are certain vehicles that are considered quite robust. Jeeps are one of them. There is a whole category of vehicles that are made to explore the wild and run through rocky areas. Yes, these vehicles are the epitome of off-road excellence. You cannot hope to achieve such journeys without the best of vehicles. SUVs are even becoming common now. However, today we are taking a look at vintage jeeps. These are the ones that are, at least, more than two decades or three decades old.
Jeeps are known to have a long life because of how they are made. Even if we look at the engines, diesel engines are more efficient than petrol. Diesel is a much purer fuel than petrol and a lot of components that run petrol engines are not needed on diesel. You will not find carburettors or spark plugs in a diesel engine. So, let us take a look at these jeeps.
