Regulator/Rectifiers for Isuzu Vehicles

Before the Humvee, there was Jeep: the original military-grade off-road vehicle.  As the United States were preparing to enter World War II, the U.S. Army requested a new type of four-wheel-drive off-road reconnaissance car.  Of the 135 manufacturers contacted by the government, only American Bantam Car Company and Willys-Overland responded.  This vehicle, called the Bantam Reconnaissance Car, took 2 days to go from concept to working prototype.  In the process, American Bantam had gone bankrupt, so the government tasked Ford and Willys with producing the Bantam design on a grand scale. 1,500 versions of the Bantam, Ford, and Willys cars were produced and, in the end, the Willys design was chosen to become the standard Jeep.  Jeeps were used in every branch of the U.S. military.  From rescue and reconnaissance, to construction and goods transport, even combat; Jeeps became the standard military cargo and personnel ground carrier and were equipped to travel on the most grueling and treacherous terrains.  In 1953, Wills was sold to Kaiser Motors and became Kaiser-Jeep.  Kaiser-Jeep went on to become a property of American Motors Corporation (AMC) in 1970.  Jeeps were universally popular with both the military and civilians all over the world, which drew the attention of Chrysler.  Chrysler purchased AMC in 1987, phasing out the AMC product line and brand name in favor of Jeep, later incorporating it into Chrysler’s lineup as its own brand.  The Chrysler-owned Jeep brand produces the Wrangler, Renegade subcompact SUV, Compass compact SUV, and the Cherokee and Grand Cherokee midsize SUV.
