At CRD4x4Parts.com, we’re not only history buffs but we love watching a good film. Luckily for us, Jeeps have been featured in many films and just for fun, we’ve decided to create a blog post centered around this.
If you’d like to add any movies we missed, feel free to leave the Jeep model and name of the movie in the comments section of this post!
Lara Croft Tomb Raider: The Cradle of Life – Chrysler announced that a limited edition 2003 Jeep Wrangler Rubicon Tomb Raider model would be in this film. Only 1,000 limited edition models were made and it made its debut in the market in July of that year.
Jurassic Park – The base vehicle showcased in Jurassic Park was the 1992 Jeep Wrangler. These jeeps were the “Sahara” trim level which meant that there were a few extra accessories and customizations on the models. These exterior extras included colored fender flares, front bumper mounted fog lamps, alloyed wheels, and a step board. In regards to the interior, there were special trail-cloth seats and removable doors with pockets.
Death Race 3: Inferno - We had a hard time finding information about this Jeep but what we do know is that it is a Jeep Wrangler Pickup and it looks awesome.
The Avengers - This Jeep wasn’t shown for very long and there is a lot of conflicting information on the internet regarding details of the vehicle. User “hazzerj” posted: This is not a Jeep Wrangler, it is a Jeep J8 Border Patrol Vehicle. The J8 is the militarized variant of the long wheelbase Wrangler (note the bonnet-mounted air intake on the left of the photo). The BPV is one of a family of J8 variants built at manufacture by Jankel, the Chrysler-appointed worldwide distributor of the J8 (note the bull bar, winch and tubular structure visible around the exterior).
