I do not know if this is true but I have heard the following for the Jeep:
CJ-Civilian Jeep
YJ-Your Jeep
TJ-Today's Jeep
But then what does the JK stand for with the new models? Just curious. Scooby

The letters don't stand for anything. That's a common misconception. Some people I guess want to think that the letters mean something, but it's just a designation of the manufacturer.

Just like most Japanese car makers, they have a desigation for thier cars chassis.

1987-1992 Toyota Supra = JZA70
1993-1998 Toyota Supra = JZA80
1991-1996 Toyota MR2 = SW20

1995-1998 Nissan 240sX = S14
1999-2001 Nissan 240sx = S15
1990-1996 Nissan 300zx = Z32
2003-Current Nissan 350Z = Z33
1999-Current Nissan Skyline = BNR34

Jeep just makes theres a little more easy to remember :D
