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.

In T-3 Arnold smashes a XJ

Me and my friends did acid in the woods, 'cuz there was much less chance of running into an authority fugure. But we ran into a bear. And that is way more of a buzz kill. I looked around and saw my friend swearing to prevent forest fires. Later, he came up to me and said, "Mitchell. Smokey is way more intense in person.- Mitch Hedberg

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?

the secret window

Though I wheel through the valley of the shadow of death,
I will fear no evil: For thou lockers are with me;
Thy lift and thy tires, they comfort me.
Thou preparest a spotter before me in the presence of mine obstacles;

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