the only one that has a meaning is CJ, it means Civilian Jeep. the rest are just model codes given to jeeps in a certain year range and body style. actually every jeep from the cherokee to the commander has one.

too bad i've already dropped so damn much money into them. why couldn't i be like most women and be interested in things like carat size, tiffany and co rings, gucci and louis vuitton. instead of tire size, dana ring gears, bestop, and LoMax low range. . well, i've never been normal, so why start now.

if you were to look in out bank account you would know which . hell, i might as well give you the account number b/c there is noting in there to steal. however, you may not have my address b/c that is where i keep all of my jeeps and jeep stuff.

i suppose that the jeeps could be considered our bank account and we regularly make deposits in the form of parts .

My Jeep has something wrong with its account. I keep depositing tons of money into it but for some reason I have yet to withdrawl.

You could add in the "DJ" for "Dispatch Jeep." But more commonly known as Mail Jeep.
