Jeep Aftermarket Grilles

Massive rock croppings and bottomless mud pits - they're nothing more than playgrounds to America's original sport utility vehicle, the Jeep. Though Jeeps are viewed largely as capable family vehicles and off-road toys for many, the brand's history is tied directly to the military. Specifically, the idea behind this versatile vehicle hatched in the minds of U.S. Army officials who went to the auto industry in search of a four-wheel-drive rig that would serve the troops in the field during World War II. That path led to the creation of Jeep Grilles, and in 1945 the first Jeep CJ was introduced. The CJ soldiered on until it was replaced by the Jeep Wrangler in 1987.

Though often referred to simply as Jeep, the brand consists of six models demonstrating varying degrees of genuine off-road capability. Every contemporary Jeep SUV features a familial slotted grille, but it's the Jeep Wrangler that carries the strongest tie to the brand's past. Sold as the Wrangler and Jeep Wrangler Unlimited, this rugged vehicle has remained true to its roots while taking on vehicles such as the Hummer H3. The Jeep Wrangler Rubicon is particularly tenacious, but when that desire to explore needs to be tempered with family responsibilities, one can always check out the three-row Jeep Commander or popular Jeep Grand Cherokee. Buyers seeking capability on a smaller budget will be attracted to the Jeep Liberty. The Jeep Cherokee is no longer offered.

During the reign of the Jeep CJ, the brand was expanding with new models such as the Jeep Wagoneer. This large Jeep SUV led to development of the Jeep Grand Wagoneer, the Jeep Cherokee, the Jeep Grand Cherokee, and more recently, the Jeep Commander.

Looking ahead, the face of Jeep is sure to evolve, though more dramatic changes might be in store under the skin, including a Bluetec diesel engine shown in the Jeep Grand Cherokee and Jeep Renegade concept. Deviating a bit from the brand's rock-chewing reputation are two other models. The Jeep Compass, the only Jeep model unavailable with a Trail Rated badge, is essentially a car-based crossover vehicle with a light-duty 4WD system. With a boxier look, the otherwise similar Jeep Patriot can be ordered with a more aggressive 4WD setup.
