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!

Postal Jeep History

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. Postal/Dispatch Jeep
The DJ-5 came to life in 1965 and is which is the postal Jeep 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. postal jeep history
What a great concept! A CJ3B to deliver the mail. This may have been a turning point in the process of creating the DJ3A and postal jeep history, the first two-wheel drive version of the Jeep and the first Postal Jeep.

The bottom picture is the DJ-5.

In 1976 Postal Jeeps 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. 1976 Postal Jeep
