Spy Shot: Jeep Grand Cherokee – Beverly Hills, CA

August 9th, 2010 by Stu

One of our left coast readers caught this curiously camouflaged Jeep Grand Cherokee rolling around Beverly Hills early this morning. The masked over badges, blacked out body panels and manufacturer plates easily identify this baby as a test mule of some sort. The only questions are what are they testing and why are they testing it in Beverly Hills? The new for 2011 Grand Cherokee is already in showrooms which means that something entirely different might be lurking beneath that sheet metal. SRT-8 anyone? Please speculate after the jump.

Good spot Ryan.

Jeep Wrangler – West 25th Street, NYC

December 7th, 2009 by Ian

Wrangler1

We spotted Darth Vader’s Wrangler on W25th Street and it’s all business. Black wheels, matte black finish and enough auxiliary lighting to land a damn airplane. Overall a very dark and ominous affair to say the least. Check out the custom wheels inside those massive tires – we might like these better.

International Harvester Scout II – East 18th Street, NYC

August 10th, 2009 by Ian

Scout 1

The Scout was International Harvester’s answer to the CJ or Civilian Jeep. It offered up all the bare bones appeal and off road ability you could handle albeit in a streetable package that was comfortable for everyday motoring. Unlike the Jeep and similarly intentioned Geländewagen, both of which started life as military vehicles, the Scout was engineered from the ground up to be a road going passenger vehicle. In fact, the Scout and Scout II were among the pioneering SUVs that contributed to America’s love affair with the species.

jeep-islander-broome-streetOn this gloomy, rain soaked hump day we bring you sunshine and this special edition Wrangler bearing a tropical name. The Islanders were not terribly different than their base model brethren, save for the vibrant “Sunset” Islander graphics and body colored wheel flares.

Land Rover One Ten – West 25th Street, NYC

May 7th, 2009 by Ian

land-rover-one-tenThe Land Rover One Ten (introduced in 1983) is the predecessor to the more commonly known Defender 110.  The “Defender” series models were meant to be rock solid little utes that could tackle the toughest of terrains and look exceptionally cool while doing so. These ruggedly handsome  Land Rovers have amassed an army of passionate enthusiasts who keep demand and resale value shockingly high. We still have bragging rights though; the first Land Rover design was inspired by the original WWII era Jeep, made right here in the good old US of A.

Toyota FJ40 – West Village NYC

February 9th, 2009 by Ian

toyota-fj40
This Toyota Land Cruiser 40 series (1960 – 1984), also know as an FJ40, was spotted here in all its tangerine glory. Judging by the surf rack, rust spots and half used bar of Sex Wax, it’s obvious this dude takes his 4×4 to the beach from time to time. Think of FJ40, which was the design inspiration for the current Toyota FJ Cruiser, as a Defender 90 within reach (i.e. they are a lot cheaper). These rough and tough FJs are also a unique alternative to the similarly valued vintage wranglers, called CJs (Civilian Jeeps)
