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 ..

Not that it makes a lot of difference ....

.... but the Willys Quad pre-dates the Bantam ??

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