Adding to your vast Knowlage Base

When I first started wheeling one of the things that amazed me about Jeepers is that you guys all knew the body codes. Being from the Car business I found this odd. I have worked with guys that have sold this product for years and never learned the body codes. I work with people who sell Jeeps for a living now that don’t know the differences between and XJ, YJ, CJ or TJ.

The other day I hear a salesman tell another guy his customer was trading in a 1996 Jeep Wrangler!!! Duh! There was no 1996 Wrangler Chrysler jumped from the 1995 YJ to the 1997 TJ. I left him alone to wallow in his ignorance.

Today looking over the invoices of 4 Door Jeeps that being shipped to us and I noticed that the Driveline is not noted on all of the invoice’s. This is going to mess a lot of guys up because it’s not spelled out “2x4 or 4x4”. So this is info that might come in handy if any of you are shopping for 4 Door Wranglers.

Here are the Body Codes for the new 2 Door and 4 Door JK


• 4X2 Four Door
o X Content Package C&S = JKTM74
o Sahara Content Package R = JKTP74

• 4X4 Four Door
o X Content Packages C&S =JKJM74
o Sahara Content Package G =JKJP74
o Rubicon Content Package R =JKJS74

• Two Door 4x4 Only
o X Content Packages B,C,S =JKJL72
o Sahara Content Package G =JKJP72
o Rubicon Content Package R =JKJS72

I have had a lot of folks ask me what they are... So I posted them.

Just for fun Call you friendly local Jeep dealer and ask to speek tio the "Jeep Guy" all stores have at leas one. Ask them if they know the body coad and let see what happens. Better yet just ask them is they know one 2007 4 Door Rubicon. I'd like to see the results.

The really sad thing about the majority of any car/truck/Jeep salesperson is, they are only in the business to make money, and do not have any enthusiasm to know what they are selling, to even speak with any kind of credibility. Unfortunately, the only gift that the majority posses is the gift of gab. One would think that doing the research, and spending a little bit of time at home, to brush up on the details of the vehicles they sell, would be a minimal effort. Salespeople want to make the money that doctors make, without putting in any effort into their craft. It would seem that the after hours liquid refreshments are more dear to their heart, than their knowledge, or lack of, the very products they want to sell. It truly is a shame that most customers are more intelligent, and knowledgeable, than the average salesperson. I have been on both sides of the fence, and have always taken great care, to speak with the facts, firmly embedded in my mind.

This is in no way a personal attack on any one specific person, and only reflects the frustration endured by many, at the hands of a so called salesperson.

Well; I know I'm not thin, good looking or charming...

So I have to know what I'm talking about to make up for my defects.

Really Blessed!

I never thought I'd ever own a Jeep, much less ultimately three of them. When I went to Waterfront Jeep in Morgantown WV to look for the first time to see if I could finally afford one, the salesman was a true Jeep guy from the word "go." He owned a CJ7 himself and could legitimately "talk the talk and walk the walk." He loved his product and knew it well. In fact, almost everyone who worked there owned one. The company is still the same - Jeep people through and through. I guess I was really blessed to have someone who could take a novice like me and get me started into the vehicle no one else outside of Jeep owners understands.

Greg, you are by far, one of the most Jeep enthusiastic people I have had the pleasure of getting to know. You are the man, when it comes to getting out there, and mixing it up on the trails, and trying your best to represent the world of Jeep'n. You are the salesman, that everyone wishes he/she knew. You bring a flavor of off roading, that is best savored with Cognac, and a good cigar. Your ability to ask the right questions, at the right time, is priceless. Your dedication to the art form of wheeling, Jeep style, is unparalleled. Keep up the great work, and keep up the enthusiasm. I for one, am glad to have made your acquaintance. I appreciate all the work you put into this venue.
