    scoutDad....because both of my sons are Eagle Scouts.
    Use the same name over on the ADV Rider forum.

    BTW, I have owned an 08 JKU and a 14 JKU.
    Currently in the market for a relatively low mile 03-06 Rubicon manual.
    This forum is a great resource!

    I almost named my Jeep 'Skully'...a through back to the X-files and the fact that I had some skulls around the TJ....ended up with Bruiser instead.

    Mine's not very original. It's my initials. My Avatar is a picture from my deck. I took the picture of the eagle but not until I looked at it on my computer did I notice the juvenile in the background.

    Oldb is a nick name I picked up in 1972 working harvest for my best friends family. (I jumped at the chance to get away from the dairy cows for a month) If they liked you they would put the word old in front of your first name. Example "here comes old Dave". By the end of harvest they had shortened it to oldb. I have had it ever since. My avatar is a project I have been working on for some time.

    B

    came home one day as a teenager and found two friends sitting on my couch drunk and trip'n on LSD. I was eating a bag of Nibs and they found it hilarious and starting with "Flib eating his Nibs" and it stuck.

    There are still some people I have known for years that still call me Flib and probably don't know my real name :)

    Nothing to original for me, just my name and alma mater, first name Isaac, Perk is a shortened version of my last name that I use on social media accounts. Went to school in Morgantown West Virginia. Go Mountaineers!

    I brought home a 95 YJ to restore about 12 years ago. I spent so much time working on the jeep my wife would get upset with me. She would find me some times under the jeep a sleep at 2 in the morning. One day I came home from work to find a large decal her friend had made. It was a dog house with two eyes looking through the dark inside. She said this is where I'm at, in the Dawghouse. The name stuck so much my jeep buddies started calling my shop the Dawghouse Garage. It was only fitting that when I got the TJ that I name him Dawghouse.

    I'm pretty sure it was back it the mid to late 90's. In my Land Cruiser days, I would wave at other Cruiser owners and my wife would ask, you know them? Nope, but they got a Cruiser. She thought it was weird, but loved me because I was a little off.
