The Jeep brand has a rich, complicated history dating back to the very beginnings of the automobile. The Jeep which we know and love today is based on models built for the U.S. military during World War II. Since then, Jeeps of all shapes and sizes have been welcomed into the family with open arms, from the 2-wheel-drive Fleetvans of the mid-60s to the present day Jeep Wrangler JK.
The progression of the Jeep line takes many twists and turns through history, a path shaped by war, economic turbulence and tireless passion. The Jeep parts may have changed, but what it means to be a jeeper holds strong today.
