We watched "Sweet Tooth" on Netflix last week. There's an early '80s Grand/Wagoneer that features pretty heavily in one episode.

I know the FSJ in Tremors is well-known, but I just came across this series of behind-the-scenes clips shot by the producer's father on VHS. I love Tremors and filmmaking so this is great stuff to me. There's a bunch but here's the first one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8rI_R_Q56Fg

Watched the mini-docu series Long Way Up with Ewan McGregor and the last episode has an old FSJ in the corner of an auto shop in Mexico.

New Amazon Prime movie has a Dark Baltic Blue Metallic Grand Wagoneer as the primary vehicle. Looks like it's been used; leather seats have covers and the rear window is a crank...doesn't look like a rear wiper so it must be an '88 with those wheels.

The movie is "Don't Make Me Go".

Based on the sounds it makes, it's an I-6, and it's from Cali in the movie, so since it's an I-6, I think it's a California truck. Pretty cool looking one.

Update: Really good movie, the beginning is a little rough. And it is a very heavy movie, so just know that going into it. But it's a good movie too, definitely should be seen.
