Just wondering. I'm new to Wrangler ownership and have been cruising this board. I've noticed that a number of people refer to their Wrangler with "she" and "her" terms. What's with that? I always thought of Jeeps as sort of masculine. Maybe I was wrong.

Because you fall in love with it and in turn spend infinite amounts of money trying to make it better and stay with you as long as possible.

You ride it hard and sometimes treat it like shit, but love it with all your heart.

Eventually it gets old and breaks down on you, but you love it just the same.

How could it be anything other than a woman?

Followup question:
Is it wrong to name all your vehicles "The Hematoma" ?

Most of my vehicles have been female but a few have been male. Just like anything else, check between the rear wheels.

The Jeep I have now is male, Snoopy. My Power Wagon was male, Thor. My JK before that was female, Guenevere.
Thor broke down a lot and Guenevere was a bit of a slut but I drove the hell out of both of them. Snoopy is the best though.

I've never actually named them but I've always referred to my vehicles as "she". Spent much of my former career driving a ladder truck that was all but 50 feet long and 12 feet high. Still a "she," LOL.

I see jeeps as masculine and have always thought it to be odd that people give them female names.

I have always given my Jeeps masculine names.

I agree with the nautical theory, but I usually end up naming vehicles after other things or events. Grey Ghost, Batmobile, Tank, Jalopy, Cherk, et...

I'm still waiting for mine to earn it's name. It's primarily used for commuting to the beach and is starting to accumulate lots of sand. I've also noticed some rust already from getting caught in the rain. Crusty is starting to come to mind...

Scary thought..... I just realized when I talk dirty to my Jeep the suspension seems to "stiffen" :eek: OMG! (not that there's anything wrong with that)

I gotta go take a bath now.....

She was a fine ship, she was, but a trifle on the feminine side.
