In this same vein, how did everyone put their Jeep's name on? Stencil? Peel and stick letters? License plate?
I'm thinking "Pepe", as in, "They're such comedians. They meant my little mule, Pepe".
Although I do like the "topless stripper" reference too. Crystal? Stormy? Heh.
Bought her and it had a REALLY LOUD and ANNOYING tap, even with the radio cranked you could hear it, just non stop tapping, and thats how I came up with the name TAPP'ER lol
I feel like its the same terms as naming a boat, once you name it, you dont change it
I researched on the forums, found out it was most likely a broken piston wing
Had it on the road for 3 days and the engine died :/
Replaced the engine, and finally opened the old engine to find this
The wife got me into jeeps with her 93 Grand Cherokee which she called Cheerio. Once Cheerio's transmission finally started to die at 240,000+ miles I figured ... spend several grand on making Cheerio good enough for another few years, or start to build my TJ.
As painful as it was I sold Cheerio and bought the new jeep, so the wife started calling it Wheaties because he was Cheerio's little brother and would need to eat his Wheaties if he wanted to live up to the legend. It stuck almost instantly.
I'm in Lancaster County,PA ( pronounced link-custer conty) now. It's the heart of Mennonite and Amish country. So, my wife an I went with "jakey" cuz it's a common name that when they say it sounds like JK so it sticks!
I just got a white Altitude which has all black accents, so it seemed fitting to call him Pepe (after Pepe le Pew the skunk). Even more fitting since we have a baby skunk that fell into our window well a few days ago and have been trying to get out, we named him Elvis BTW
Named my TJ Honey... The wifes a big whinnie the pooh fan and it kinda fit a yellow Jeep... Plus shes never really sure if I am sweet talking my Jeep or her...
Haha nice, I named mine Penny off the Big Bang Theory character, and my sister added to it, her name is now Penny the Banana of Doom because she used to hate riding in it, she now wants me to drive her everywhere in the TJ
Don't follow the Hype, follow your Heart.
Mine's a Y2K. So "Double Ought", like Bill says in Kill Bill, came naturally.
Driving a Jeep is ordering coffee at the drive through and asking "Leave some room at the top. For the sloshing." Okay, we’re a little crazy to have a Jeep for a daily driver. But if we go off our meds, we might wind up in a Prius -- P.J. O'Rourke
