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.

trying to get the TJ right

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


I thought YJs were Yodelling Jeeps?
