Origin of Jeep Easter Eggs
The ‘Jeep Easter Eggs’ tradition was initially influenced by the modern tradition in which eggs are designed and painted for the festive of Easter to celebrate the religious affair.
This tradition of stamping Jeep Easter Eggs started in 1997 when a designer Michael Santoro imprinted the iconic seven-slot grille design on the Jeep’s wiper area to create his signature mark. Later on, this tradition was carried on to 2011, when a similar design was incorporated into the headlamp.
