    How to Name a Jeep

    So I have been looking through the forums and noticed almost everyone has a name for there jeep. So I was wondering what made you choose that name for your jeep.

    Something that you really like or something pertaining to it. Like mine, I love the A10 warthog jets, and love the tenacity of an actual warthog, that's how mine was named Warthog. Music, movies, guns, hobbies, anything can be an inspiration.

    What things do you like, maybe we can give you some suggestions.

    I found out recently how important it is to name your Jeep; any Jeep not just the Wrangler. My daughters named my Jeep Eugene after the original Eugene the Jeep from the Popeye cartoons. I bought them some classic cartoon dvds and explained the connection when they saw Jeep for the first time. So they picked Eugene because like the cartoon, he is weird looking but can go anywhere. Also, when we got the wife her 2016 Cherokee Trailhawk it became the T.A.R.D.I.S. My youngest is a huge Dr. Who nut. Anyway, when my wife's best friend decided to get a Cherokee also (4 cylinder, front wheel drive only) she never gave it a name. Now after 3 transmissions later they finally declared it a lemon and they are buying it back. I've always named my Jeeps, (XJs, TJs, JK, and now the KL) and I have never had any major issues.

    Here are some pictures of Eugene and The TARDIS.

    Exactly! In the past I have referred to most of my vehicles as "she". However, my Willys Wheeler just seemed to me to be a "he" and therefore, I chose Willis.ImageUploadedByWAYALIFE1452026872.299273.jpg

    I'm in the same boat. Want to name my Jeep but the right name just hasn't come to me yet.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
