Sounds like after the fact marketing BS to me.

Since this 9 yr. old thread won't die, can I turn it into a "Jeep wave" thread?
I only wave to Jeeps that have seven slot grills.

Anything is acceptable at this point.

It's historical now! Who cares how old the thread is, the information contained within isn't time relevant.

Jeep 7 slot grill

I was told by a dealer that it represents the 7 continents of the world Jeep has traveled.

I was at an event recently where a 2014 Jeep was auctioned off, and the auctioneer said that there are 7 slots because the Jeep has conquered all 7 continents. For what it's worth...

Scientists have not yet achieved the breakthrough required to have exactly 8 slots.
