    Anyone who uses body codes tends to be a jeeper. Sj, CJ, DJ, wk, tj, xj, jk, these are all things that people who have had a Jeep and know that wrangler isn't a Toyota.

    Not everyone is an enthusiast. I'm pretty sure in most countries outside the US, pretty much any 4x4 SUV that isn't a range rover is referred to as a Jeep. It's a type of vehicle, not the name of a brand.

    I'm sorry but that's complete bafoonery. No wonder when police go looking for criminals they say be on the look out for a white late model sedan. Um you're going to have to give me information than just that. That does nothing.

    Point of order, "CJ" is a model name. :D I think SJ and DJ are also come to think of it.

    This is true mostly in the US as well. Not as much as the 1980s but still exists. Band-Aid, Kleenex, Xerox, Ditto, Aspirin, Formica, are all similar examples of this phenomenon.

    Not sure just yet... more than likely a Chrysler.

    Yeah, thanks for the answer. I've been all over the States and have never heard people call other off roaders, "Jeeps." I do know about people not knowing what vehicles Jeep has in their portfolio. A lot of people, like you said, don't realize a Jeep Wrangler is called that. But I've noticed many know what a Grand Cherokee and plain old Cherokee is.

    I've also heard a lot of people, outside of the Pacific Northwest and West Coast, simply not like Jeep's because they think they are "rough riding." It again comes down to people not being aware of what a brand is and what each brand has. It's shocking how people either don't care or just aren't that bright. I've had people talk about cars saying, "It's a Ford Chevy" or, "it's a Dodge Bronco." How am I supposed to respond to that?

    Back in the late 1950s or early 1960s I remember my Dad telling me about U S Army Jeeps he had driven during WW II - even told me some were Fords but most were Willys. Around that time we saw this strange looking Jeep-like vehicle which was likely a Toyota FJ. When I asked him what it was he said "a Japanese Jeep."

    Yup. My brother collects and restores old Jeeps, and one is 43 Ford GPW. There have been several companies that have made Jeep "clones" over the years, so the confusion can be understandable. It still irritates me for some unknown irrational reason. :)

    Have done this all my life: any cola is a "Coke" to me. Now that I drink unsweetened ice tea, it's no longer a thang.
