Jeep is an automobile brand owned by Chrysler and has been manufacturing vehicles since the 1940s. Jeeps were originally manufactured for military use, but eventually began being manufactured for the general public. It is also used as a general term for recreational off road vehicles, in fact, it is synonymous with off road recreational driving. Off road driving is often simply called ‘Jeeping.’ There are several different models that have been manufactured over the years, including the Cherokee, the Grand Cherokee, and the Wagoneer. Jeep was the first brand to manufacture SUVs and they still manufacture new SUV models every year.
While several models can drive off road in rough conditions, the Wrangler is an off road model that is associated with recreational off road driving the most. It is designed for rough terrain and rocks and is easy to customize, which makes it perfect for recreational off road driving. Wranglers are also the best light weight off road vehicle because they have solid axles that are very durable and strong and allow the vehicle to traverse very rough terrain. You can purchase a jeep at a jeep dealer, of which there are many all over the country, or you could buy it used from a used car lot, a newspaper or automotive magazine classified, or online. If you decide to buy a jeep, no matter who you buy it from, make sure that the seller is reliable and credible so you can get the best vehicle for your money.
