A History of Performance. 75+ Years Strong. 

Jeep History

Jeep TodayThe “Jeep” vehicle concept was born in answer to the U.S. Army’s call for designs of an easily transportable 4x4 general-purpose vehicle during World War II. Willys-Overland was one of the original manufacturers selected to produce the chosen design, with Dana (then the Spicer Manufacturing Company) providing the driveline components for every vehicle. After the war, Willys-Overland began selling civilian versions of the iconic military vehicle, and Dana’s relationship with the Jeep brand has been going strong ever since. It’s a relationship for the ages–forged in continuous improvement and innovation that is believed to be the longest continuous supply relationship on the same vehicle in automotive history. And we’re just getting started.

Only from Dana: Exclusive AdvanTEK® Technology for Unprecedented Stock Performance.

For the first time ever, every Jeep Wrangler vehicle will be offered with exclusive Dana AdvanTEK® axle technology, right off the line.
