Why do they call them "heeps"?

So, I was surfing some forums dedicated to various other off-road vehicles such as toyota FJ forums, and discovered they refer to Jeeps as "heeps".

I found the lack of respect and the level of ignorance in using such a reference somewhat staggering. Then I realized it was most likely a sophomoric response driven by jealousy. These guys probably couldn't follow a Jeep down a rough trail and had their egos bruised... Or worse yet were pulled out by a Jeep on a trail somewhere.

Anyway, this isn't likely news to many of you. I never visit non-Jeep forums so when I finally did, I was taken by surprise.

I call my jeep my heep sometimes because theres always something new that needs to be fixed. Thats most likely the reason why.

They hate Jeeps for the same reason I hated Emmitt Smith in the 90's......because he was damn UNSTOPPABLE, and I wasn't a Dallas fan. Simple.
