Here's the 464th Fighter Squadron CO's jeep on Ie Shima in August 1945.  I've got a shot of a slatty in Korea in 1951 as well, but I can't put my hands on it right now.  

 

Note the civvy tries, a common modification for jeeps starting right at the end of hostilities (and sometimes earlier for rear-echelon assigned ones).

I've got a shot of my granddad's jeep (F/330th Infantry) in the summer of 44 with one civilian tire and mud flaps.

From what I have read over the years is that, The Life Expectancy of any Army vehicle was 6 weeks. Not that they were built to last only that. War has it's dangers.....
