Who's making stickers and shirts and wants to send me royalties?

I'm pretty sure J stands for Jeep and the L stands for the letter in the alphabet that comes after K.

Maybe it means Jeep Lives! (After all the people claiming FCA was going to ruin the Wrangler before it made its debut.)

Pretty sure Jeep enthusiasts just started calling it the JL (next letter in the alphabet after JK) long before the vehicle was officially announced and Jeep just went with what the community named it.

How many people do you know who actually call the Wrangler a Wrangler, though? I've always either called it the Jeep or by its production model code. I actually have to make the extra effort to remind myself to call it a Wrangler when I'm calling a dealership or a shop.

Hmmm, let’s see if I can remember what a old Jeep club member shared with me...

CJ = Civilian Jeep
YJ = Yesterday’s Jeep
TJ = Today’s Jeep
LJ = Long Jeep
JK = Just Kidding
JL = Just Laughable

I actually did that today when a rim shop asked what car I had, I said "JL....errr.....JEEP.......um, wrangler...." lol. He had a JK he told me, so lucky he probably understood.

I do believe you are correct, JL was simply the next set of letters in line and they were too lazy to come up with anything unique.

Uhhhhh, what's a "rim" shop? Are you refering to the rim that is part of a wheel? Can you buy the whole wheel there?

I tried to look it up on a few internet searches and came up with nothing. I would go along with the J standing for Jeep and the L standing for the next designated model with no meaning behind it.

I believe it's Jeep Lives, and the next gen isn't JM, but rather JLM--Jeep Lives Matter. FCA is making a political statement.

I've had four jeeps, never has the word Wrangler been used with any of them.

I'm fine with Jeep Life but better with Jeep Lives! as it has risen. I don't even name my vehicles so really "Where am I?"
