JEEP car???

Did jeep ever produce a car? I could have sworn I saw a older vehicle the other day with JEEP on the hood.

Could also be thinking about a Jeepster. Kind of looks like a car.

Maybe the guy just stuck the jeep enblem on his car or something. the car was real small, and looked nothing like a jeep of any kind.

the closest thing that was produced was either by amc which was the eagle... or if you consider a willys wagon a car... then there was the willys coupe which is just sexy

The Jeepster was a car.. the earliest Wagoneers looked like station wagons. Check this link out for a pictorial view of early year jeeps:

i was looking through those and was wondering if the gladiator was the civilian version of the M715 b/c it has the exact same grill, but it is lower and i assume has less ogf an engine, but was it based on the M175?

All of the FSJ trucks were basically the same thing. Gladiator is just a trim level of a J10 or J20 if I remember correctly. The trucks and even the full sized Cherokees had the same front clips. Even a full size Cherokee with square headlights has round buckets behind the grill

Yep - on one episode of "TRUCKS!" on SpikeTV, the old host Stacey put a Gladiator grill on an 82(?) full size Cherokee
