During the 1940s, there was a need for high-quality and reliable vehicles for soldiers to use during World War II. The Jeep brand of vehicles was born. In 1941, they introduced a lightweight military 4x4 that became the primary car used by troops. It was also the oldest four-wheel drive mass-produced SUV. Jeep gained a reputation for producing vehicles able to handle all kinds of terrain. Jeeps produced for civilians were manufactured starting in 1945 in Ohio. The models were known as the CJ-2A. This model was popular for a long time before the well-known Wrangler replaced it in 1986. The marque was acquired by Chrysler eventually. It is now housed under the Fiat Chrysler Automobile Corporation. If you drive Jeep, be sure that you're using only OEM parts and accessories on it.
