Okay I would like to learn more about Jeep Terminology.....

I know what a XJ is (Jeep Cheorkee) but I am unclear on the rest, plus I would like to learn some of the slang you guys use.

Let's See who has the most knowledge on this site.

the military version of the M38A2 (like a cj 5) came from the factory with a shackle reversal. the jeep is based off the early bantam desgin, not the willys, willys just had better production facilities. Ford built around 400,000 jeeps during wwII. the stamped slat grill design was courtesy of ford motor company who used it instead of the expensive and labor intensive wraught iron grill that willys was producing. jeeps got the nickname "pnumonia wagons" druing the war. the jeep brand has been made by willys, kaiser, AMC, and chrysler. ron regan used jeeps around his farm/ranch.

close enough ... aren't they the same platform?
The new Dodge Caliber is the old Neon platform / PT cruiser platform--at least the Caliber was the replacement for the Neon.
I was told that the Compass and the Patriot shared the same platform but with different sheet metal.

Neither one are real Jeeps anyway.
