The *J naming scheme came from CJ, which stands for Civilian Jeep. I doubt the rest are acronyms.

What does tj in jeep mean?

TJ is not an abbrevation for anything, its just Jeep's designation for the 1997-2006 Jeep Wrangler. After World War Two, Jeep made vehicle for non-military use. They were designated "CJ" for "Citizen's Jeep". In 1987, Jeep had a major rennovation of the Wrangler and designated it "YJ". Again a major design change took place in 1997, and the new Jeep was called the "TJ". The letters don't mean anything though.

Mine will continue to be Tattered Jeep, until I get it moving, then it will be Trail Jeep.


I thought YJs were Yodelling Jeeps?
