The first civilian Jeep vehicle, the CJ-2A, was produced in 1945. Jeep Willys advertisements marketed as a work vehicle for farmers and construction workers. It came with a tailgate, side spare tire, the more lights, an external fuel cap and many more items that its military predecessors did not understand.
CJ-2A was completed in four years, and in 1948 the CJ-3A was introduced. It was very similar to the previous model but featured a windshield in one piece, and kept the original L-head four-cylinder engine.
