Cj? TJ? Jk? YJ?

Hi I'm new here and new to jeep. So I'm sorry if this is an xtremely stupid question.
Just wondering what all these abbreviation mean? From what I gathered, Jku is wrangler unlimited?? What's the 'k' stand for? Thanks.

Welcome Duckie

So as I understand it (someone correct me if I am wrong here)...but CJ was originally the designation for Civilian Jeep attached to the first commercially sold versions (CJ-2A, CJ-3B, CJ5, CJ7). YJ, TJ, JK are just random designators formed from the original CJ with no real explicit meaning.

Duckie, as far as what each designation is, look at the forum's main page under forum tech. There is a brief description of what each one is and what years they were produced. Basically, each set of letters is a different body style. As to what exactly does YJ (etc) mean? I haven't a clue... I'll have to defer to RedRubi2012's answer.
