Fast and the Furious Jeep

On my trip to Colorado this week, we ventured up to Pike's Peak and ran into some odd traffic/cameras. We were told they were filming Fast and the Furious (7?) and came across this modded JKU that will be in the movie. Couldn't stop and talk long enough to ask what all was added to it, but at a quick glance, the interior was an auto 2012-2014 (couldn't see if the cup holders had lights.) Behind it is an all black bus with guns on the underbelly. Not a fan of the movies, but any modded JK will get my attention. Looking like they added some metal/tin to the frame for aesthetic purposes. Just thought I'd share with the group.

Cool. Looks like a gobi rack. I'll be waiting for the movie. I thought the next one would be the sixth in the series. I could be wrong.

My prediction is that all that stuff tacked on is supposed to be bulletproof (in the movie).

The 6th was the last one released, they left you hanging enough to know there would be a 7th. I've also read that the Franchise had a 7th in filming.

Yes, I've seen them all and it's a tradition that my daughter and I go to opening night of each one. lol.


I love the Walker Evans wheels on this JKU, I will be looking for it in the next movie

the 6th film was just out.... this would be 7th. that appears to be an older JK based on the dark green color.

I grew up in the F&F scene. Lol, I went to opening night for the first one. Lost track after the second one. Those look like general grabbers on there. What y'all think?

Haha, no kidding!

But being it's the same people who brought down a whole plane with steel cables hooked up to cars, they'll find a way to turn Jeeps into some race cars.

My buddy and I were into the whole import thing when FF1 came out. So yes I've been a fan since, even if the movies seem as ridiculous as they seem cool. Now I have more reason to see #7!!

If you've seen the previous F&F movies you have to continue the tradition and see them all

I'd kind of like to see the F&F 7 movie because of the Jeep. But, with Justin Bieber and a bunch of ricer vehicles in it....No thanks!


Here's a couple of more shots of the JKU in F&F 7.

The "ricer" vehicles disappeared a long time ago. Lol. The past few F&F movies haven't even been about racing. Also Justin Bieber isn't in it.

Cast list: Fast & Furious 7 (2014) - Full cast and crew

That would piss off a lot of people.

I watched the one in Miami the other night again, and holy bad acting and writing batman! But I still think they are fun.

I just hope the exhaust manifold didn't blow out the floor boards on that Jeep.

Let alone a plane that was rolling down a runway for about 20 min lol. That runway must've been over 10 miles long.

Odly enough, I still look forward to watching them. Guilty pleasure?

I never saw a single one of them, and wouldn't if they offered a free 2.5 Teraflex lift with every movie ticket.

Just sayin'.

I agree. I grew up on the series. As for that ricer comment, to each their own because I kind of miss that element from the original.
If you take this series to seriously then you are obviously missing the point of the more recent sequels. Just supposed to be entertainment. Even if there is a

Lucas Black (main character from FF3 Tokyo Drift) is confirmed for FF7, FF8, & FF9:

‘Tokyo Drift’ Star Lucas Black Returns for ‘Fast and Furious’ Films 7, 8 and 9 | /Film

Also I read somewhere (can't find the source, read it at work while I was taking a dump) that they will be using a few more Jeeps in the next three movies. Wouldn't be surprised if Jeep saw a nice little bump in sales in correlation to these movies release dates.

And I thought my visibility was bad through the back window because of the wiper motor... Definitely can't wait to see this one, I've been a fan for a while now.
