Jeep and woman

I've always been wanting to say this.

While reading all the thread about your and our jeep mods, going on trails, buying parts, fixing parts. For better or worse, woman had always been playing a role.

I'm single and no girlfriend, but I thought it's cute.

Even though this one time, I waited this guy for an hour at the gas station because he needs me to show him how to wheel this trail, he brought his woman whom was bitching about dust, mud, and the bumping ride, all along and he had no choice but to bail me and head home.

What are y'all experience and stories dealing with wifes/ girlfriend while trying to have fun with our rigs?

My former girlfriend, now current wife enjoys going off road with me. We get out as often as we can.
It makes it easier to get funding for new gear.
I think it has a lot to do with experiences, If you can get them to go once and don't get them covered in dirt, they will be more likely to go again.
I remember fording a creek after a few trail rides with her. I figured she was never going out again when the water came over the hood and up to the bottom of the wipers. When we came out the other side she was grinning from ear to ear.
Of course we went back through again just for fun.
I have noticed non positive reactions when buried to the frame in mud toward any suggestion of her getting out to aid in recovery. We are working on this.

Mine goes with me. Its not her most favorite thing to do but she knows i like it so she goes along. Even spots( using that term loosely) for me. Only one time did she say anything and that was when i entered a small mud hole which proceeded to swallow the front of the jeep. Luckily i had my witts about me and stuffed it into reverse and matted the skinny pedal. So yeah, i like having the company plus she's handy at airing down while i disco

Well, I don't have a girlfriend or wife... But I have a husband and two boys. I went for my first time off roading last weekend and had a blast. I had to go by myself.... So it just isn't a woman thing... It's an interest thing. But I know when I take my family they will have a blast. So be careful when you talke about it being a gender thing... It's not because I LOVE IT!!! Just be careful when picking that girlfriend... You need to have your things and she needs to have her things and you need to have your things you share. Just make sure she understands that.

In Colorado, Red Cone is considered one of the most dangerous trails in the state. It's one way down on loose shale along a ridge with nothing to stop you if you mess up for over 500ft on each side...

My new girlfriend (now wife of 23 years) and I did the trail as her first 4x4 trip. We started off the top and she says "Stop!! I want to get out!"... So I stop on the loose shale, she opens the door and says "I can't get out here!", so I start going and again she yells "Stop!!!!!! I have to get out!!!!! Again I manage to get stopped on the loose shale, she opens the door and again says "I can't get out here!" sounding as if she is ready to go into tears... I start moving and again she says "Stop!!!! I HAVE to get out!!!" This time I replied... "I can't stop here unless you want to ride to the bottom of the mountain on the Jeeps top and sides"... I didn't hear another word, and we've been wheelin' ever since.

My mom is like that now on hard trails. My dad isn't supposed to take her on them, but he still does!

I am not a huge fan of off-roading. The experience makes me anxious. That said, my current boyfriend isn't a Jeeper or Off-Roader, but if he was, he would be welcome to go. While I like to spend time with my man, we also have separate hobbies and are fine spending time separate.

If he really wanted me to join him, I probably would. I just wouldn't drive my vehicle.

I've only gone once but I love off-roading. My bf laughed at me when I rolled up the day I got my jeep saying I'd never go off-roading. I told him what's the point In having a jeep if you don't take it off-road?
So we went to the off-road park like 2 months ago and he kept tellin me oh you're gonna get stuck
I didn't get stuck at all
And now we're going tomorrow and he's taking his truck that I can't wait to have to pull out lol

My ex wife went mudding with me and when I told her she should roll up her window she said it was too hot , she got a mud bath. Never went out with me again.
My present wife (35 years later) still loves it and doesn't mind getting a little dirty. It was her idea to buy our first Jeep a CJ-8.
I guess I got it right the second time.

My wife and I have been married for 35 years, and I am on my 3rd Jeep, she never wanted to go out wheelin' but she finally went earlier this month up to Big Bear on the Jeep Jamboree. She had a blast, and even won a $400 gift certificate to GenRight, which I used for a new rear bumper... So, I think she was hooked. But then, just last weekend, we hit a really easy trail up off Ortega Highway, and she ask me to drive.. So, I let her. And after about 10 minutes, she turns to me and says, "it's way better to drive than be a passenger"... So, my comment back.. "then get your own jeep", well at least that's what I said in my head. I haven't stayed married for 35 years by making boneheaded remarks like that... I said, "yes, dear"...

I have been four wheeling by myself now for 3 years+, I softly wheeled in high schools 6+ years ago. I met my current boyfriend 4 years ago who owns a 97 H1 Hummer and wheeled it...he's been building it from the ground up for 3 1/2 years and we cannot wait for it to be finished so we can finally wheel together. We may butt heads over Jeep vs Hummer but when it comes to the trails we both light up and enjoy the trips.

I actually met my "much taller half" (lol!) ON a Jeep run with a local club. We have a lot of Jeep fun together! Since my girl Jeep is essentially still stock, we take his Jeep on the harder trails. Hard to beat a Hemi in a brick on some 37s with a big buncha scratches! Gives my girl Jeep something to aspire to lol! Nothing was more romantic than our trip on a tropical island - spent shopping on the internet for Jeep parts! How many folks can honestly say they met literally in the middle of a desert? LOL! He of course knows a lot more about all the mechanical stuff than I do.

I took my wife and daughter shooting in Wa. State then went on some trails in my Toyo I found out my wife did not care for it. My daughter told her to get out and we will come back for her that did not go over too well.

As for the Jeep She would rather me keep it on paved road rather than off roading it. I explained I bought a jeep for a reason to take it off roading if I wanted to stay on the paved roads I would would of bought something more gas friendly.

She may one day enjoy it but she says I get too crazy on trails and the drop offs ( cliffs) scare her.

Mike got his jeep in November of 2012. I wasn't very excited about the idea at the time, but I supported him, as I do with everything he does.

Once he let me drive out in the sugar sand in Florida, all the memories of riding dirt bikes when I was a kid came back and I fell in LOVE!!!

October 29, 2013 I picked up my jeep and we've spent many weekends working on the jeeps together, adding mods and going out wheeling.

We are currently in Ouray, Colorado for a twelve day wheeling adventure. Don't sell all women short! You just need to find the right one!

My wife is a born city girl....loves the mall and shopping. In fact, I sold my CJ-7 to put a ring on her finger. After 8 years of marriage, I told her it was time to get another Jeep.

I told her I would compromise and take her out when the weather is supposed to be good. I only did mods that would enhance her safety (hmmmm....winch, lockers, well it really got out of hand BUT, it was all for her safety!).

The first time I took her out, it poured rain and hail on us. She was a good sport though. She enjoys it now when the top is off and there's plenty of sunshine.

Here she was on a great rock crawling trail hanging on for dear life...





So coming up next week we are headed to Ouray so we can sight see in the Jeep and let her do some shopping.

Sure it would be great to find a female companion that loves it as much as you do but seriously most women I know don't want to get dirty or muddy or even have jeep hair. You need to find a woman that is down to earth that either enjoys it like you do or at least supports you.

My husband has no desire to go off road so it is more of "my thing" - just like horses my husband is scared to death of them but that could be due to me having 13 fractures over the years and him seeing a really nasty spill first hand. He supports the horse thing but would much prefer that I give it up.

My husband loves mountain biking - I don't. I see it as too much work and just not a fun thing for me but I support him in his hobby and never give him a hard time for going out for hours having fun.

It is a compromise thing but if you find a girl and she starts screaming about jeep hair - well pass her on by and find another because topless is the only way to go!

I was showing my wife some YouTube videos of the Rubicon rock crawling.

Then she happened to click on a video of an offroad buggy.

She said, "I want one!" o_O
