Jeep factory assembly videos

Might be a repost, but... Came across these today. Thought it was interesting to see how they put our Jeeps together at the factory. I find the various tools/jigs and sub-assemblies interesting. I wish they showed a little more JK stuff... I could care less about the Liberty stuff.

I've tried them all... Jeeps are still the best. (0||||0)

What do you expect- they're in Michigan not California.
People still eat meat there!

It's been a long time since I rebuilt a motor from a bare block.
And never using a virgin casting.
Thanks for the vid...

Do they have the video where Jeeps come off the line with mis-matched fenders?

Funny watching this as I worked at Ford Motor CO, in Milpitas, Ca. (before it became a Toyota place) and I don't remember lines moving this slow. I was in the commercial group (pickups) and you were humping your butt the entire shift, not just casually walking doing this or that. Times change, I guess.

It's just a video staged and planned by corporate advertisers. They're not going to be showing people running around stressed out probably doing a bad job and missing steps as a result. That may or may not be happening, but if it does you can be sure it's not going to be in this video! Wouldn't even surprise me if they don't actually use half these fancy hanging ergonomic tools in reality.
