Naming your Jeep...

I know the 2016 thread got hijacked for a bit on this, so I wanted to split it out. Some people have some rough types of names for their Jeeps. Some even have guy names. We're kinda lame: our 2004 is named "Rubi". Real original, eh?

What's your Jeep's name?

What should our second Jeep be named? I told my wife if it shows up on Tuesday the 15th, we should at least call that day "Rubi 2's Day" (Ruby Tuesday- get it? ) Anyhow, it's going to be a Tank colored Hard Rock Rubicon... Rockin' Rubi? Rubi 2? The General? Buzz?

Re: Naming your Jeep...

Along the lines of great names such as Rubi for your Rubicon, my '72 Monte Carlo was called Monte.

I sometimes referred to my '01 Kia Sportage as Forbes (short.. errrr.. long for 4x4).

My father's '07 is named Jasper.

I haven't named my '13 Sahara. I wonder if it's secretly mad at me or having an identity crisis.

Re: Naming your Jeep...

I was looking at a JKUHR in Tank that would have been named Sherman too. My previous 97 TJ was named Trigger because of all the "Happy Trails".

My 2015 JKUR is named Bo short for bovine because my wife says it's the Jeep version of a Cash Cow - it creates an ever increasing cash flow (albeit outgoing rather than incoming) that far exceeds its initial cost.

I say it's short for Blue Ox as in Babe of Paul Bunyan fame.

Re: Naming your Jeep...

08' WK was "Jill"...had the light colored two-tone interior and she was my first

14' WK2 SRT is "Jack"...beast all the way around so it's a male...and just seemed right!

The male/female thing is the first thing to determine IMO...and it can take some time but you will "know"!!
