Really dumb nomenclature question

Alright, I have a dumb (probably) question on nomenclature. On the CarFax report that came with our Jeep, it is listed as a 2005 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited. On this forum, people refer to it as an LJ or a Jeep Unlimited. Are they all the same words for the same thing, and I'm just being dense, or is there a proper way of referring to it? (At home, it's just "the Jeep", anyway.)

Not a dumb question. LJ is an unofficial moniker for the Unlimited TJ.

So, officially (from Jeep) it is a TJ Unlimited but here and other forums/places LJ is the term dujoir.

She's kidding... It doesn't actually stand for Long Jeep. The only Jeep whose initials actually mean something are CJ which is Civilian Jeep.
