Its A Jeep Thing...

Well I finally understand the whole Its A Jeep Thing... after watching all my neighbors dig out their cars/suvs/trucks out of four feet of snow. When all i did was drop it in 4 High and drove right out, and for being only my second time ever driving in snow, I really dont understand why would want anything other than a Jeep...but thats just me.

I love owning a Jeep and for it being the first "car" I've ever had, there will be a few more Jeeps in my life.

I love it when the city plows our street....I just ride over the hump of snow at the end of my driveway

Yep - back in March we got a good 31" of snow and my uncle got his little 2wd toyota stuck in the snow on his attempt to go to work in the morning. He had to steal his wifes Cherokee to get out. And with my family's 4 Jeeps, we basicly plowed the first road into town It feels good sometimes

awesome.

snow actually doesn't sound too bad.

two days ago it was in the 70's! it was like 74 or 76! it was nice weather but it definitely didn't feel like Christmas time.

Tear, I never made it out today. Just sat around all day doing nothing but once Christmas comes around I have to put in my center console that I made my parents buy for the Jeep.

When Amy and I first got together she owned one of those little Honda go cart crx things, you know, the ones where you have to lift your butt off the seat when going over bumps. anyway, when I went long haul trucking we knew I wouldn't be around to shovel the driveway or put chains on her car or anything (as if I actually did that sorta thing before ) we'll we decided she should get something that could get around in the snow a little better than a pregnant roller skate. we went shopping and she eventually fell in love with a 94 Jeep Wrangler, it was a little more than I had wanted to spend but I knew it could do the job and they were giving us a good deal on the recycled aluminum can she had been driving so we got it.
The first snow storm the first winter I was gone I get a call on the cell...
/me Hi hon what's up?
/her I'm stuck!!!
/me huh?
/her I'm stuck in the drive way, the snow plows plowed a berm around the driveway and I'm stuck!!!
/me How the ^%& did you get stuck in a Jeep? did you put it 4x4?
/her yes, of course I did, I tried easing over the berm so I wouldn't hurt it and I got high centered.
/me it's a Jeep, you aren't going to hurt it, just hammer down and it'll go pretty much where you aim.

She's been driving over everything in her way ever since
