Origin of term
The term comes from United States military slang, coined by servicemen in Afghanistan, although it may date to the British colonial period. The term came to be because of the "jingle" sound that the trucks make due to the chains hanging from the bumpers of the vehicles.
Also, the more "jingle" found on the trucks typically meant the more wealthy the owners were. It was a sign of success.
The trucks are painted in intricate patterns and bright colors, and chains and pendants often dangle off the front bumper.
