Quick facts about 4X4 in
In Israel the word "Jeep" is used
generically to describe any 4X4 vehicle.
However, locally assembled CJ and
YJ-L "Storm" Jeeps are the most popular hard-core trail rigs.
Approximately half of Israel is
desert - the Negev and Judea
deserts, rich in natural beauty, historical trails and
archeoligical sites dating back to biblical times.
In Israel virtually no open land
is privately owned or closed to travel. Freedom to roam off-road
is well established.
On the downside, government
taxes cars, fuel and everything that has to do with them
heavily. The cost of maintaining a Jeep in Israel (normalized by
income) is many times higher than in the US.
So we have less jeeps, older and
not as well built - but we have lots of trails to explore!
