The Volkswagen Type 181 was a two-wheel drive, four-door, convertible, off-road, military vehicle manufactured by Volkswagen from 1968 to 1983. It was originally developed for the German soldiers, but it was also sold to the public carrying different names like Kurierwagen in Germany, Safari in Mexico, Thing in the United States, and the Trekker in the UK. Military 181s attain a higher ride height and lower effective gearing by using reduction boxes, a form of portal axles. 181s without reduction boxes feature a transmission similar to the Beetle but with a slower gearing.
