JEEP FEST 2021: Jeep Cuts

Great cinematic and TV moments
with our favorite vehicle


Back to the Future 

When Marty McFly is late for school, he hitches a ride by grabbing onto a 1985 Jeep CJ-7. This Jeep was produced from 1944 to 1986, when the CJ-7 was phased out and replaced by the Jeep Wrangler. 

 


Band of Brothers 

This 2001 Golden Globe-winning HBO series included an estimated 600-1000 Jeeps to make the World War II scenes as accurate as possible. Behind the scenes, HBO and Chrysler worked out a shrewd promotion—“Band of Brothers” production happened to coincide with Jeep’s 60th anniversary. 

 

 


 

Dukes of Hazzard 

Sure, the 1968/69 Dodge Charger got star billing, but who can forget Daisy Duke in her white CJ-7 Jeep named Dixie?  

 

 

 


Jurassic Park 

Spielberg’s fabled dinosaur movie prominently features the 1992 Jeep Wrangler YJ Sahara, which proves to be a good choice for escaping the jaws of giant lizards. Sales of Wranglers soared after this 1993 box office sensation.  

 

 


M*A*S*H 

The opening sequence of the original classic movie when Hawkeye and Duke steal a Jeep from U.S. Army headquarters is legendary, and sets the perfect tone for this wartime comedy. A lesser known but equally hilarious scene occurs towards the end when Dago Red, the Army chaplain, extols a blessing on a Jeep. Amen!
