I've been kicking around the idea of what we should call Grenadier owners.  We have the Bronco Nation,  jeep has Jeepers, Tesla has Teslaholics.  

I was thinking the Brigade so the Grenadier Brigade.   You also get GB for short, which ties nicely into the UK roots.

The badge is depicting a "Burning Bomb" which has bad connotation for a vehicle I suspect. Hows your Burning Bomb? Suggest the name of simply Guardsmen.

If tongue-in-cheek and self deprecation are OK, and we want to subtlety honor the man who tackled this adventure, how 'bout... "Rats"? I think he'd be fine with that!

Grenadier soldiers carried grenades.  The Grenadier 4x4 carries people.  Thus, we are also Grenades.

This rig must be well built because the name Grenadier is a risky one in the US. I could see people calling it the "Grenader".

Great idea! Blows the opposition out of the (car) park!?

My tentative  suggestion is "Grinner"? ..... it's a reasonable slang shortening of Grenadier, as distinct from  "Grenna"  though the way some people pronounce English one might say there's no difference! :)    "Grinner" also conveys a sense of well-being and fulfilment" that comes from driving a real 4WD... ?with the collective noun being Grinners ... a happy bunch!!

I think it is time to put it to a vote.  I have to figure it out but I say we put it up to a vote and then the top 5 will get voted on with the winner take all.

Sorry but I find it a bit naive to "vote" for something which is not possible to decide.

Such names, if necessary at all, evolve. They can hardly be determined by vote or decree.

A little off topic, but I want a bumper sticker that says, "I feel sorry for new Defender owners."  or "I won't hurt your new Defender."

ADVAW8S your bumper sticker should say 'my other car is a real 4x4'?
