Welcome to
Postal Jeep



Postal Jeeps were also used in Canada, but many of them were replaced with newer trucks in the 1970's. The example is a used postal jeep on the east coast of Canada into the 1980's, and is now on display at the Canadian Postal Museum in Ottawa.
 

Moo Moo.  This postal jeep was either hit hard by a flock of birds, or this postal jeep owner really likes cows!

I put the postal jeep dj5 web site together because I have always liked the postal jeep dj5.  There is a good chance you may still see some in rural areas, there are not too many on the road anymore.  If you are lucky, you might be able to pick up a used one at a good price.  Please browse through this web site to learn about the postal jeep dj5 and the history behind the postal jeep dj5.  I update the web site often, so check back soon!

The Postal/Dispatch Jeep was made in two simple models, the DJ-3A (seen to the right) and the DJ-5. The DJ-3A was a flat fender Jeep similar to the CJ-3A except it was two wheel drive. It was produced from 1956 until 1965.

The DJ-5 came to life in 1965 and is which is the one most people are familiar with today. They also produced a longer version from 1965 until 1968, the DJ-6. The DJ-5 was made by Jeep into the early 1970s and production continued under AM General for many years.

What a great concept! A CJ3B to deliver the mail. This may have been a turning point in the process of creating the DJ3A, the first two-wheel drive version of the Jeep and the first postal jeep dj5.

In 1976 models remained reliable and repair was simple for the DJ-5E "Electruck" version. It weighed nearly twice that of a gas powered jeep, thanks to the hefty batteries.
