It's funny you mention this...At my kids swim class its ALL Prius'. cant wait to roll in in my new jeep with the roof/ doors off. Eat that stuffy swim parents!

Not really something silly about my Jeep but I stopped at the bar for just a couple drinks on the way home & when I left there were a few guys standing outside looking at me Jeep. Of course I shot the shit with them for a minute & one of them told me how much he missed his '95 "Rubicon". I didn't feel like calling him out on that one but I almost took it as an insult because he either knew nothing about Jeeps or thought I knew nothing about them. Anyway I had to laugh about it in the way home. Gotta love a BSer

My boss is a white guy from the South, and when he took a ride with me in my Jeep, he said "Don't tell me you wear a wife beater in the summer too". I said actually I do, to which he responded "You might be a redneck if you wear wife beaters and drive a lifted Jeep with big @$$ wheels..get some side steps for this thing!"...btw I'm Filipino.

You won't eat anything, only Jeepers think like that. The Prius owners will likely shake their heads on your Jeep.

My friends still can't figure out why I bought a vehicle, paid for the top and doors but need to take them off and yet paid more for non-protecting tube doors . They might care about a topless Lambo, but not a Jeep.

Anyone who drives a prius has obviously never researched that decision seeing as how the old geo metro got better mpg without the environmentally hazardous batteries......

I was picking up my girl at the airport and decided to park in the garage. the clearance was 7 ft so I knew I would fit.. Then the cb antenna came into play. You could hear it smack the cement roof and make that "Whoosh Whoosh" sound, needless to say it echoed and cop came and talked to me to see if everything was ok. Just said it was the cb and he looked at me and looked at the jeep, shrugged and walked away.

This is what I do 9 months of the year. Why vacuum carpets when you can just take them out and hose out the jeep

Pulled in to the local Home Depot and a guy loading his car stopped me and asked if I had a lift on it. I told him "no". He says, "well it looks like it". I proceeded to explain that it could just be the stiffer springs since it's an Unlimited and a hard top. Then he says "Yeah, we've got a two door and a four door at home. One's lifted four inches. Had the dealership do it so everything is covered under warranty and it was cheaper that way!"

.....Ooookay, well enjoy it!

Not as silly a question as you might think. You could buy a 2wd until 2011 IIRC.

After I picked up my new Jeep I drove to my Moms house to let her see it. She said "Your grandfather used to have a Jeep. He used to wash it in the creek!"

We were letting pedestrians cross in front of the jeep on Friday in Gatlinburg. An older gentleman got halfway across the street. I didn't even think he noticed me. All of sudden he turned around and said, "that's the best looking jeep I've ever seen." Not silly I know, but pretty cool.
