Did you know that in the design of your Jeep vehicle, there are easter eggs imprinted on your vehicle as a bonus? For those who might not know, an easter egg is a hidden design, imprint, or feature added to add novelty and even functionality for Meridian Jeep owners. Learn more about the origin of these Jeep secrets with us at Peterson Chrysler Dodge Jeep Ram, and visit us in the Boise area if you are wanting to browse our new vehicle inventory or to just get some handy Jeep tips.



Origins of the Jeep Easter Egg

The Jeep Easter Egg originated in 1997 where designer Michael Santoro, emboldened to leave his mark on the final product incorporated the iconic 7-bar grille design hidden in the cowl of the Wrangler. Hence, the very first Jeep Wrangler easter egg started a 23-year tradition of hiding little gems in their vehicles. 

The fun begins with purchasing a new Jeep and driving it off the lot, but it continues as Jeep drivers search to find these easter eggs hidden in the vehicle. Jeep Easter eggs have been located in various places such as headlights, taillights, doors, cupholders, fuel doors, and the liftgate, and the easter eggs are different for different Jeep models. This means that the easter eggs found in the Jeep Gladiator are different from the Jeep Cherokee easter eggs.

Where to Find These Easter Eggs

Now that you’ve been fairly forewarned about potential spoilers, let us let you into the secrets of where you can find easter eggs in Jeeps:

  • Vintage Willy Jeeps can be found in the design of the Jeep Wrangler or on certain wheels.
  • If you keep a keen eye, you could see a JL stamped under the hood of the Jeep Liberty, as well as the morse code translation of “JL.”
  • You can find an image of the Loch Ness Monster in the rear window as an homage to the fact that Jeep Compasses are capable of fording 19 inches of water.
  • On the Jeep Gladiator, you can find flip-flops in the cowl of the Jeep Gladiator as a reference to Rick Pewes.
  • You can find a spider saying “Ciao, Baby” if you look on the fuel door of the Jeep Renegade. A small Sasquatch can be found on the rear windshield of the renegade as well.
  • Finally, you could find a lizard underneath the windshield wipers of some Jeep models!
