I think they called it a car because they didn't have a partnership or agreement with Jeep at the time... And couldn't use "Jeep" because of the trademark or whatever.. I don't remember exactly but i think that was the reasoning. When the episodes played there was almost always a jeep commercial during the commercial breaks though :P

It was weird, because they were in a couple of nice trucks; an F150 Supercab and a Chevy Silverado Crew Cab (or whatever the names are for the 4-door types of each truck). Each truck was equipped with a NICE ARB front bumper and Warn Winch. The F150 had a headache rack, too, and the Chevy had some miscellaneous duffel and garbage bags in the back. 10 guys all told, just hangin' out around the trucks, watching me come up the trail in the snow. Only reason I found it unusual was because the trucks were totally unmarked, but they had government plates, the exempt ones. All the guys weren't doing anything, just standing around watching me. I tried looking into the trees to see if I couldn't find what they were working on (machinery, etc.) and didn't see a thing! Just a bunch of unknown men in woodsy outfits wearing baseball caps watching me crawl up the trail. Freaked me out a little, to be honest! Asked around in my moms office-- she's a lawyer for the state of Montana-- and some guys said that the state government had contracted with ARB and they thought Warn to outfit some rugged trucks for use in the absolute backcountry of Montana's mountains. We're talking like 50 miles from any paved road remote. Like 33" BFG Mud Terrains remote. None of the guys knew about any of the organizations/contractors that would use these trucks though. Just whispers and rumors around the state's watercoolers... Strange things up here haha
