JEEP CJ (1944-1986)

The Jeep CJ (short for "Civilian Jeep") was a popular compact SUV produced by Willys, and later by Kaiser Jeep and AMC, from 1944 to 1986. The CJ models were built for off-road use and featured a rugged design, with a separate body and frame, live axles, and a variety of engine options. They were also known for their distinctive round headlights and seven-slot grille. The CJ was available in various iterations over the years, including the CJ-2A, CJ-3A, CJ-5, CJ-6, CJ-7, and CJ-8 Scrambler. Many of these models were used by the US military during World War II and the Korean War, and were later adapted for civilian use. The CJ was eventually replaced by the Jeep Wrangler in 1986.
