The Jeep Salute Concept Wrangler

July 15, 1941 was the day the first Jeep ever came off the assembly line, which is why the Salute came out just a few days ago, to commemorate its predecessor. The Salute is a throwback that is based on the JK Sport, which features:
  • 16-Inch Steel Wheels Wrapped In 32-Inch Military Non-Directional Tires
  • Hood Latches
  • Rear-Mounted Spare Tire
  • Steel Front And Rear Bumpers
  • Tow Hooks
  • Low Back Canvas Seats
  • Wood Hood Blocks And Side Mirrors
  • Bronze Commemorative Fender Badges
  • Olive Drab Green Paint
It's not the Kilroy, in that it's not equipped with all the bells-and-whistles-upgrades Jeeps are known for. Nonetheless, we like it. It's simplicity and utility are what make it so great.
