what's your thoughts about what they should mean?

Maybe the X in XJ ... is an abbreviation of "crossbred" ... signifying the Renault involvement in that particular Jeeps gene pool ..

Sorta makes that Bantam Jeep Heritage Festival in Butler, Pa. ... a pointless event.

Holder350, just saying you literally just copied Wikipedia. You didn't think it was a slurring of the designation. That's what Wikipedia told you
