JK huh?

OK I'm as new as a newbie can get and I have to admit there are a lot of abbreviations I am not getting, what does the JK stand for. Please help me understand.

Re: JK huh?

A little bit more info if you're interested

1944-1986 = Jeep CJ (Various versions)
1987-1995 = Jeep YJ
1997-2006 = Jeep TJ
2007-Today = Jeep JK

From 2004-2006 there was a model called the LJ, it was just a longer version of the TJ.
