After its initial release, Jump was re-released under the title Fury on Wheels, the title of the print viewed. Although the onscreen credits include a copyright statement for May Films Ltd., the film was not registered for copyright until December 20, 1999, at which point May Films received the registration number RE-815-170. Jonathan Edwards' onscreen credit reads: "Music performed by." Edwards wrote and sang several of the songs heard throughout the film. Although two songs were identified, the titles of the remaining compositions have not been determined.
The opening credits appear over a sequence in which "Chester Jump" is driving and recalling various conversations with his parents, establishing the family's poverty and reliance on religion. Those conversations appear on one side of a split screen while the image of Chet driving continues on the other side of the screen.
Jump was shot on location in Tampa, FL. A October 28, 1970 Variety article noted the production would cost around $500,000 and all post-production work would take place in New York laboratories. The film marked director Joseph Manduke's first feature.
