It's NOT A CAR !! They should have interviewed an actual plant worker who actually builds them ... He or She would have clearly stated , IT'S A JEEP .. Notta car

That dude just knows manufacturing engineering and process... clearly has no passion for the product. If I ran the factory I'd keep #1M and stick it on display on the roof or something. ...but that would lose $15k in profit or whatever they make.

I wonder how many JKs out of 1 million were ordered by customers vs dealer stock orders? Those of us who ordered may have more rare Jeeps!

Both mine and my wife's were ordered. Nothing special though with the exception getting the 3.73's in both of them.

When I ordered mine I wanted specific hardware. A manual transmission and 3.73 gears alone made it a hard find so I had to order. So mine is more rare in that sense.

I want to see when the JK reaches 2.9 million made. Then it will officially dethrone the XJ.

I'm speculating that the JK will eventually make it to around 1,500,000 units, and then with the redesign in 2016-17 (?), it will be given a new designation. Who knows, Jeep may clean the entire slate by then, and rename it something besides Wrangler.


Here's an educational list that I ran across, although it's currently outdated:

# MA: In 1941 this was the first prototype in the development of the Jeep. The M indicates a military vehicle and the A the first model.
# MB: This is the standard WWII military Jeep built from 1942-1945. The B indicated the second model of the series. (Just a note the Ford versions of the same Jeep were called the GPW. G for government, P for 80 inch wheel base and W for Willys.
# CJ-2: The first of the civilian model Jeeps. CJ stands for Civilian Jeep built from 1944-1945.
# CJ-2A: Civilian Jeep built from 1945-1949
# CJ-3A: Civilian Jeep built from 1948-1953, slight differences in body measurement.
# M-38: A military version of the CJ-3A but without tailgate and other modifications. Willys called it the MC model. Built from 1950-1955.
# CJ-3B: Very similar to CJ-3A but had a higher hood and allowed the use of the F-head engine. 1953-1964.
# M-606: Military version of the CJ-3B built from 1954-1968.
# CJ-4: Prototype in 1950 never saw production.
# CJ-V35U: Modified CJ-3A built in 1950 for the Navy.
# VJ: Early 2 wheel drive Jeepsters built in 1949-1950.
# M38A1: Military Jeep. Also known as the MD was a forerunner to the CJ-5. Built between 1954-1957 and maybe as far as 1971.
# FC-150: This was a pickup, cab forward, 80 inch wheelbase built from 1956-1964.
# FC-170: This was a pickup, cab forward, 103 inch wheelbase built from 1957-1964.
# CJ-5: Civilian Jeep, 81 inch wheelbase built from 1954-1971 and the 83.5 inch wheelbase from 1972-1986.
# CJ-6: Civilian Jeep with a 20 " longer wheelbase than the CJ5 built from 1956-1975.
# CJ-7: Updated CJ-5 with a 93.5" wheelbase built from 1976-1986.
# CJ-8: Pickup design with a 103.5" wheelbase called the Scrambler. Built from 1982-1986.
# CJ-10: Pickup version 110" wheelbase built for the military and sold overseas there was a shorter model call the CJ-10A.
# C-101: Jeepster built from 1966-1973.
# M-151: Military vehicle built by Jeep and designed by Ford. Full independent suspension with a unibody design.
# M-422/M-422A1: Built by AMC for the Marines in 1964.
# M-715: 1 1/4 ton truck built by Jeep in 1967-1969.
# DJ: various models of 2 wheel drive Jeeps similar to some CJ models.
# MJ: The Jeep Comanche pickup. Built from 1986-1992. J stands for Jeep and M is just a model number.
# XJ: The Jeep Cherokee built from 1984-2001.
# SJ or FSJ: A Fullsize Jeep Wagoneer or Cherokee built from 1963-1991.
# J: A fullsize Jeep Gladiator pickup built from 1963-1987.
# YJ: The Jeep Wrangler model built from 1987-1996.
# TJ: The Jeep Wrangler model built form 1997-2006.
# ZJ: The GrandCherokee built from 1993-1998.
# WJ: The current Grand Cherokee model built from 1999-2005.
# KJ: The Jeep Liberty.
# WK: JeepGrandCherokee 2006-

That would indicate that there are in excess of 800,000 3.8L engines out there from the Wrangler alone. Guess it shouldn't be hard to find parts.

You say that because you have a 4 door urban mall crawling station wagon that was designed for soccer moms to pick up grocerys with.
