What's your Jeeps name?

I see plenty of signatures with specs listed, but many people have a name for their jeep listed next to it...

Maybe it's just you crazies who have more than 1 FSJ and cant keep em straight!

Anyway, what's the name of your jeep?

Mine is affectionately referred to by my parents (from across the country), and most of my friends as "The beast" but it's more like "the BEEST!"

When I pulled in for an oil change (yes, i swap my own engines but dont change my own oil) the other week my mechanic remarked "Woah! What a battleship!"

I kinda like that....Battleship, haha.

But we'll stick with "The Beast" or "The Heep"

Its got a few. Most of the time its referred to as "the Jeep", mainly by my family, but other times its "the tank", and sometimes one of my friends will just throw out a random name for it (which I will not say in order to follow the family friendly rules here) because he still can't get his head around how awesome it is

"Whitney", because it's a nice name and is the name of one of the mountains in the Sierra-Nevada mountain range that it has been to the top of. But as all FSJ's, it is often called the ____ piece of ___.

I love how arguements end as soon as Ristow comments. Ristow is right...again.

What's the wager on when "Truck Norris" comes back?.. Oops, I guess I just did...

My favorite of all time...
You can teach what you know but you can only reproduce what you are.

It makes sense if you don't think about it.

Wife calls my '87 GW the generic "Woody" or "The Heep" and more recently "The Piece C--- In The Front Yard". I refer to it as "DogWood". Dog because the main use is to haul my 5 large dogs around town and the Wood is kinda obvious. I also thought it a play on words being that Dogwood is a tree and recently it seems to rooted to the ground.

When my truck was still a Cherokee Chief my dad started calling it Chief Bowels (he kept repeating a line from one of his favorite jokes - "Chief Bowels no move!"). Even though it shed the chief badges with the body swap he is sticking with the name. My wife has always refered to each of the FSJs that I've had as "the ugly jeep". My CJ is named Lizzy.

I refer to it as "the wag" but this road trip has made me think of a few more names for it.

I'm on my second Wagoneer now and they've both been christened the same thing by my family and friends. The Shaggin' Wagon.
