I heard (which makes it 100% true, of course) that the 9 to 7 slot decision was that it was easier to make the seven slots, it looks the same, and is not as 'busy'. Same effect, in other words. NOt sure why I think I heard that somewhere though.

I do not remember the 7 slot grill being such a big deal until GM
bought controlling interest in Hummmer. Up until that point Hummer was a small company that did not sell their vehicles to the public. I think what hurt Jeep in their lawsuit was the fact that prior to the GM purchase Jeep did not sue to protect the 7-slot grill. If they would have contested the pre-GM Hummer vehicles they may have won. As for chosing 7 slots it may have something to due with the fact that CJ series came with 7 slots.
Till this day I believe that the CJ is the most recognized Jeep vehicle in the world. They should copyright the 9-slot grill since the first civilian Jeep had 9 slots.

Believe me, in a country other than USA every 4x4 vehicles is referenced by Jeep. It's like..
-What do you drive?
-I drive a Gip [jeep]
-No, That's a ford..
-Yeah, It's a ford jeep.

This is not the only one I have seen with 8 slots.. So does anyone have the list of Jeeps & models with years, and when did Chrysler includ & remove the extra slot?

From what I understand, the HMMWV was designed, with 7 slots, by Jeep engineers. The design was sold. Hummer eventually came to own it. When they built the H1, they kept the slot design from the HMMWV. When they built the H2, etc, they patterned it off the H1 grille.

Hummers have 7 slots because the entire line is based on a design originally created by Jeep engineers.

Or so I have read...
