The Design of the M151A2
First produced in 1959 by the Ford Motor Company, this ¼-ton truck saw a longer run of service than most military jeeps. While it retained many of the same dimensions and general basic layout as its predecessors, this redesigned M151 boasted many key innovations.
Overall, the body of this jeep model is longer and wider than the ones that came before it. The redesigned frame of the M151A2 eliminated the earlier “tub and frame” body in exchange for an integrated “unibody” structure. This not only made for a simpler and stronger design, but it also gave the vehicle more ground clearance and a lower center of gravity, thus improving off-road capabilities.
Another major improvement on the M151 series is its independent suspension and coil springs, which no model of jeep had before. This offered the vehicle greater handling and maneuverability. Additionally, it had a higher top speed and a further range of travel.
