    Famous Jeeps

    This may be dorky, but I wonder how many famous Jeeps there are out there.

    Mork & Mindy(flat fendered at that!)

    Daisy Duke

    All the M.A.S.H vehicles really......


    Are there any others you can think of??

    I drive my wife crazy with that movie "Tremors". For some reason, every time it is on tv I watch it. It's one of those that's not great but you can watch it over and over again...if there is nothing else to do.

    Well, I don't know if these are to be considered "famous" but here are some in TV and Movies.

    "Castaway"- Hanks drives a XJ at the end of the film

    "ER" - Dr. Carter drives a TJ.

    Of course, more obvious would be the Rubi in "Tomb Raider"


    Currently own a 98 XJ bone stock, but click Here: For pics of my TJ and old XJ.

    New Jack City.

    Wesley Snipes rolls in a bling YJ and then his female gangster henchwoman jumps out and shoots a dude in the head. Afterwards, Wesley says something like "Now that's how you Cap somebody right in the middle of the streat in Broad F*****g Day light!"
