You don't need insurance but may want it if your Jeep is named "Eugene"

If I had a Jeep (other than the 50+ year old toy jeep and trailer that sits on my fridge), first it would have to be an old one (cuz otherwise they just don't look right), second it would have to come with a free mechanic, and third I'd feel compelled to name it G.I.Joe

I learned how to drive in an old army jeep at the age of 12. It had a power take-off winch as well as a power take off belt drum. I practiced in the graveyard in Genoa Nevada when the town's population was 60 !
I did not have insurance either !

I can believe that. Back before the insurance industry convinced the States (and the lenders) to make insurance mandatory, a LOT of us did not carry auto insurance!
With insurance came more lawsuits. After all, you weren't suing your neighbor, you were suing that faceless Insurance Company, and everybody knows they have deep pockets!
In fact, I didn't have auto insurance until 1962, and then only because the military forced me to buy it to get a base sticker on my vehicle. Luckily, I never had an accident.

Classic Jeep Driving:

Attach winch line to any solid object.
Put Jeep in neutral.
Power on winch, wind up line.
Rinse and repeat until you get where you're going.

Admittedly the ride will be a trifle jerky.
