My ex's dad owned an FJ40 and he called it "jimminy jeep" and this was in the late 70s, early 80s. Lots of people who know the difference call them jeeps with a small J. Aggravating to a Toyota junkie purist, sure. But look at the origins of the FJ line tho. And remember that lots of companies made "jeeps" under military contract. I think I'm gonna start greeting you 40 guys with, "Nice jeep," every time I see you in it/standing next to it.
