Jeeps in Movies Thread

See any Jeeps in movies??

In Castway. Tom Hanks drives an XJ (looked like around 98 from the wheels but was supposed to be before 95) He drives it before he got stranded and Helen Hunt kept it and gave it back to him when he got back. I hoped a girl would do tha for me. I mean. All four years I'd just wanna be drving my Jeep.

That's the first one that came to my mind.

-'Gone in 60 seconds' - an XJ goes through a wall in the final chase scene from a wrecking ball

-'Rounders' - Matt Damon's character drives an XJ throughout the movie. Edward Norton's character said something like "Looks like you're doin well...nice Jeep, nice girlfriend..."

-'Man on Fire' - An XJ gets blasted with an RPG from Denzel Washington.

^^^ what is it with movie makers and destroying XJs?

yeah, it's been a while since i watched them, but now that i think about it, you're right...she was killed at the beginning of the second one, and she was alive when she got in the xj.

Can't forget "Sahara" and "Lara Croft Tomb Raider" which both featured prominent Jeep placement!
