Make Mine A Jeep

A friend sent me this article today. If you haven't read it, take 10 minutes to do so. Further solidifies why Jeeps are hands down the best (if you already didn't know)

Well, he's right. "crossing the rubicon" meant passing the "point of no return" for Julius Ceaser's army. It's disputed whether the river of Julius Ceaser's day is the exact same one named rubicon today.

As for naming the jeep model rubicon, that may very well follow from the rubicon trail (near lake Tahoe) near the rubicon river in the Sierra Nevadas but ultimately the California river gets its name from the Italian one.
