Jeep is going green—again. 

Taking a cue from it's first military-inspired models that began rolling off assembly lines in 1941, Jeep is offering 75th anniversary editions of all models painted in the classic green.  

Sadly, there's no World War II-spec olive drab, but the special edition Jeeps are all green, with bronze-colored wheels, bronze and orange exterior detailing and seats embossed with the 75th anniversary logo.

The Wrangler and Wrangler Unlimited are obviously the heros of the line, with their lineage leading back to the original Army Jeeps. Their functional upgrades include rock rails, available locking Dana 44 rear differential and Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor tires.

Other models feature mainly special badging and trim, in tribute to the All-American brand's storied WWII origins.
