A real Jeep is one that is used as such. I don't care if it's a CJ, YJ, TJ, JK, XJ, WJ, Liberty, or one called by any other name. Jeeps are meant to go off road. Jeeps are meant to get you out and enjoying nature. It doesn't matter if it's a trail that most any passenger car can traverse, or a near 90 degree rocky incline. Jeeps are meant to bring a smile to your face. Jeeps are meant to get dirt on them.

A real Jeep:

-Actual frame, none of this unibody ****
-Steel fenders. Plastic flares are fine, so long as the fender itself is steel.

By that definition all Wranglers (and anything before) are, but XJ, ZJ, WJ are not.
You're silly.

What's funny is the XJ was AMC, the ZJ was in the works for AMC.

Yes they have those threads over there too. "Real" Chevys are 87-99 GMT400 trucks according to most forum thumpers but we all know that's not true.

What is a "real Jeep" you ask?
short sweet and to the point, a vehicle that isn't pampered like a lowered Buick Limousine and carries that lovely "Jeep" name/logo. Anything passed that is just biased arrogance.

i can't stand seeing people that get a brand new Jeep and pamper it over a speed bump like it's grand dads vintage rolls royce.. COME ON DUDE, YOU'RE IN A LIFTED JEEP, TREAT IT LIKE ONE.. Ok, ranting done

My first real Jeep was a 1947 with a flathead four, don't recall the name on it as I was only 13 when driving it so did not care, second was a 1958 with the "Jeep" four banger. Third, perhaps not so "real", was a 1973 with the AMC six, great engine that was, plowed snow and never gave up. Long gone was the Willys trademark. Even Ford built a few Jeeps during the war. Beyond that, I have owned a number of Mercedes and Crapsler Jeeps. The Germans did a good job redesigning the to the JK iteration.

To say someone does not own a "real" Jeep due to cosmetic issues, how they drive it, year it was built, etc. is just foolish. If a person desires the "one and only original" it best be painted green and be somewhere over 60 years old. Hope that helps answer your question.
