    The only vehicle I've seen that calls for flammable coolant/ antifreeze in my time wrenching is a 54 international t340 crawler that calls for kerosene or ethanol for conditions under 40 degrees... everything modern from over the road to military calls for ethylene glycol and water mix on later vehicles.

This allows simpler maintenance in the field, but also means the coolant may be flammable. The antifreeze used in civilian jeeps is water-borne and not flammable.

    I was a wrench for 5 years in the army and never saw anything other than modern coolant in anything besides air cooled engines like snowmobiles or atv's

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
