Yukon's Jeep XJ Page

What is an XJ, you ask?  An XJ is more commonly known as the Jeep Cherokee.  It was first offered in 1984.  It's classified today as a "Compact Sport Utility Vehicle."

Some of the stuff on these pages also applies to the Jeep MJ, the pickup version of the Cherokee known as the Comanche.  These were produced until the early 90's, and share much of the same parts and technology with the XJ's.  It's a shame that Jeep stopped making them - they are a great pickup.

Jeep History
Will The Real Jeep Please Stand Up (External Link)
Where did the name "Jeep" come from?  Did the name come from the Popeye comic strip character "Eugene the Jeep" or from a slurring of the US Army's designation of "GP" for General Purpose?  This article seems to answer the question once and for all.  While you're there, check out the line of "Eugene" products.
