JEEP Vehicles and Related (Military)
Prior to - and during - World War 2, 'JEEP' was used to generically signify any 4x4 light vehicle - until Willys-Overland trademarked the name in 1950.There are a total of 19 JEEP Vehicles and Related (Military) in the Military Factory. Entries are listed below in alphanumeric order (1-to-Z). Flag images indicative of country of origin and not necessarily primary operator.
Note that many consider the last classic World War 2-related jeep to be the Willys-Overland / Kaiser-Jeep M38 as the M151 was of a Ford design and largely a new vehicle altogether. Additionally, global counterparts of the jeep existed in both the inventories of Japan and Germany during World War 2 and are appropriately listed here for comparison. The end of the jeep line for the American military came with the arrival of the AM General HUMVEE multi-purpose 4x4 vehicle.
