Do All Jeeps Have Hidden Animals?

All jeeps have hidden animals, but people get confused about what this term actually means. Hidden animals, also famous as easter eggs, are always in discussion among people. 

What Are The Jeep Easter Eggs (History, Types and Purpose)
  • What are the jeep easter eggs?
  • Is jeep actually have any real hidden animals?
  • Are jeep easter eggs appear on easter only?
  • Does the jeep hide eggs for them?

These questions are thoroughly asked, and people have many funny answers for them also. But here I’m cleared that jeeps neither have eggs nor hidden animals. Moreover, there is nothing special occurs on Easter. 

The reason behind calling them hidden animals is that the designers hide some animal silhouettes in various parts of the jeep. But if you find some other objects, then don’t worry; they are also from the same category. 

Calling them easter eggs shows enthusiasm and curiosity to find them, similar to hunting for hidden chocolate eggs, a fun activity of Easter. What else do they contain, and how amazing these hidden animals are? To know about it, let’s come with me. 

Do All Jeeps Have Hidden Animals On Them?

The answer to the question “do all jeeps really have hidden animals” is yes, all jeeps have hidden animals or easter eggs, but finding them is a little tricky. Moreover, if you have a precious jeep model like the one manufactured prior to 1997, you will not find any hidden animal except the logo jeep. Let’s begin this topic to understand more.  

Why did Jeep Brand add Hidden Animals?

When it comes to the reason and purpose behind adding the hidden animals and objects in the jeep’s interior and exterior, we didn’t say anything with proof. The jeep brand also never clarified this point. 

Michael Santoro, the designer, first added a seven-bar grille design on the jeep wrangler in 1997, which began this exciting tradition. The designer’s motive is to leave a personal touch on the jeep wrangler’s final product. 

However, the only purpose many claims are that the hidden animals increase the airflow; in this way, they also benefit the jeep. But maybe this is only true for the seven grilles and not for every hidden animal. 

As it is a new thing from the jeep brand side, and people also love it and are always curious to find them, the company continues to add these hidden animals in all types of jeeps after 1997. 

What year Jeeps have hidden animals?

When it comes to the first easter egg is the seven-bar grille which the designer added to the jeep wrangler in 1997. The designer lowered the number of grilles and kept it at seven instead of nine, which is Ford’s design, as a trademark of the jeep. 

Are There Any Hidden Animals On My Jeep?
