Jobs that have to do with Jeeps?

So I'm in high school and I was wondering if there was any jobs out there that do with nothing but Jeeps and I can't think of any. Any help would be AWESOME!!! Thanks!

Become a mechanic (ASE certified, and a few trade school classes in welding / body work / or similar wouldn't hurt either) and then go into business for yourself as a dealer / installer of aftermarket performance parts and lifts.

Then work like hell on building yourself an excellent uncompromising reputation (the customer is not always right). Really good 4X4 shops are few and far between. Customers will beat a path to your door.

Have you seen the postings from Geoff@Bestop? Riding around in Wranglers with Jeep Girl Britta in Moab all day and making videos about it. What better job could there be?

Amen! If this would pay the bills... I drive up to Gary's Jeeps in Chicopee, MA to look, admire and think about wrenching on Wranglers for a living.

get hooked up on a rock racing team, and be on the crew for KOH and other races. Though IMO jeeps/working on rigs is what i need to do after work. Keeps it fun and relaxing to spend a day working on your junk with your buddies hanging around. I don't want it to have to pay the bills it might loose its appeal

You could just drive your jeep around and claim to work for NASA.

There's a guy who uses Jeeps to put in granite curbs. He built a frame around the top and put an I beam from the back frame to the front frame (by the A pillars) and stick out past the front bumper. There's a chain fall at the end of the I beam.
