Not sure if everyone on here names their rigs, I most certainly do.

That being said, if I was to have a TJ show up in my driveway it would be appropriately named The Little Deuce.

Any takers?

I'm all for it. Always named my vehicles.. heck I've even named vehicles that weren't mine haha ;)

I'd probably be going with something generic... for a TJ, it'll be something like Tiffany or something.. cause you know.. it starts with a T...

I've never actually named anything aside from my motorcycle and that one I just called it my baby. Probably Chopper if I really do name it, just so I can shout out "get to the chopper"!

Shaggy, from scooby doo. He pretty much describes me sometimes and I'm always going to have snacks on hand no matter the car, fitting that I name it after the guy who has food on his mind all the time.

It would be pretty confusing for other people if you stuck a "chopper" badge on the side of the TJ. :D
As for me, I'd want to paint the TJ with the mystery machine colors, just a lot more toned down so it doesn't look like it came straight out of a cartoon. Dark Green body would look nice.

I like to jump the gun and for the weird people that don't name their cars.... allow me :wink:

Often times I'll only name vehicles that I'm in quite often though as me and a couple buddies tend to share vehicles quite often haha.

I don't know, the cartoon version could be kind of cool!!! You would be able to keep the Scooby snacks warm in the rear door heater to!!

Do it! Reupholster the sucker while you're at it and repaint the plastics. Doesn't actually look too bad and you may as well go big or go home. The TJ Cruiser seems like the perfect vehicle for certain themes.

You might be on to something here. Lexus already has the LC in a big hollywood film and we know how much car makers love being on the big screen. Maybe this is an era where Toyota/Lexus will push hard for that exposure? One thing for sure is their new vehicles have the sort of character to fill those potential roles.

Something like the TJ would be great in the hollywood industry, but Ford just put the Bronco concept in some sort of dinosaur movie or something and that's where the TJ could have shined

Maybe they can cast it for the next one as you can imagine... I'm sure the Jurassic Park saga is no where near finished yet haha. Can you think of any other movies that it would do well in?

With how squarish the TJ Cruiser looks, the movie effect guys can easily slap on a few off-road mods and custom paint jobs to make it fit in a variety of sets; jungle, post apocalyptic city, Jurrasic World, etc.

Always a fan of post apocalyptic... or perhaps.. even strap some guns on and cool bumpers and make another Death Race sequel.. but using a hybrid version of the TJ... ;)

Now that would be humorous...

If you're one for keeping tools in the car and modding it, Macgyver is a great name for the vehicle too. Heck, if Toyota sticks with even a portion of what the concept has to offer then the factory TJ Cruiser will have enough toys itself to life up to the name.

There are so many name possibilities, but if you want to put it on your license plate what would you name your TJ?

I would call it Stubby... short for stubby wrench because the TJ is smaller than the FJ Cruiser it is suggested to replace. Best part of it you'll get a lot of people asking why you called it that... good story to follow :D
