1964 Jeep CJ-5

← Back to the Portfolio


The short wheelbase and narrow frame of the CJ-5s allowed them to fit into places where full-size 4×4 trucks could not go. Their ability to maneuver over rough terrain made them ideal for park maintenance vehicles, forest fire protection, and transporting equipment and supplies to hard-to-reach places. Also helping them gain popularity was their low cost of repairs and operation.

The CJ-5 has the distinct honor of having the longest production run of any US vehicle. A total of 603,303 CJ-5s were produced between 1955 and 1983.
