New to the Jeep Forum......what is the difference in

Guys let me first apologize, I didn't know where to post this question. I'm new to this forum and so grateful it exists, I've learned so much. I have a 2011 Grand Cherokee Laredo with flex-fuel.

What is the difference between WK, WK2, WJ, ZJ, & TJ??

I have no clue what any of that means and how it could pertain to me, please help?

easy, those are platform names of the various jeep vehicles...

WK=2005 to 2010 grand Cherokee
WK2=2011-15 grand Cherokee
WJ= 1999-2004 grand Cherokee
ZJ=early 90's to 1998 Grand Cherokee
TJ=late 90's to 2006 Wrangler

whats your year and model of jeep?

the liberty has 2 generations, the KJ from 02-2005 and the KK from 06-11
the newer wrangler is the JK from 07-15 (JKU if unlimited model)
The new Cherokee is the KL platform

So, 1999 to 2004 Grand Cherokee = WJ
the 2005 to 2010 Grand Cherokee = WK.
2011 on is WK2

TJ is the Wrangler from 97 to 2003?, not sure on the end date.

You posted this question in the SRT section which is a sub forum of the greater Jeep forum. If you click on the jeep forum, you will see the different models that have subforums, IE wk2, wk, wj....etc.
Feel free to ask the dumb questions, but also feel free to use the search button, as your question that you might have thought was dumb, most likely has been asked and answered and is posted right here in the forum.

Good luck and welcome aboard!
