Last winter when there was about 8 inches of snow on the ground and it was bout 12* outside, I picked up my 7 year old from day care. When she saw I drove the TJ to get her, she asked, "Daddy, can we ride home with the top down?" As much as I would ahve loved too!

whenever I meet someone new and they look at my jeep the first thing they ask is, and rather sheepishly, you take it offroad? Silly people, if the dings in my bumper, mud caked on my rockers and desert pinstriping wasnt enough of a clue.

Someone at work today asked me if it was a Hummer. Sad thing he used to have a jeep.

while test driving a JK before buying mine, my wife was wondering aloud why they put the window controls on the center. while I was considering it, she came up with a good reason... "So that the power windows will still work when you take the doors off"

Top and doors off. Puppy in the back (leash tied securely to roll cage). Lady comes up to me and says "you're dispicable! You really feel safe keeping your puppy back there?" I shot my best Joker smile and responded with "you really feel safe confronting a complete stranger in an empty parking lot?" She sheepishly glanced around and walked back to her minivan with 3 kids and drove off.

Don't you just love people.

I get so many "jeeps are dangerously high to start with, then you lift them, I hope you are a careful driver"...

HAVE YOU SEEN A STOCK TJ? It's tiny.

This usually coming from a mom driving an old explorer or something that has twice as many rollovers on record compared to wranglers.

"You're jeep is awesome, how much lift does that have"
Me - "3 inches of suspension, an inch and a quarter of body lift"
Them - "Oh.... uh. It's SWEET!"



"Do you take that thing offroading? I have a fourwheeler"
Me - "I wheel on rocks the size of your fourwheeler..."


"Do you go mudding?" - hell no.

"How big are your tires, like 47s?"

I could go on and on...

As my wife and I were leaving the restaurant I "remote" started Punkinzilla. A man and lady that were standing between my Jeep and the vehicle next to it looked sort of surprised and looked inside to see who started it. We walked up and as we started to get in they asked how the vehicle started up by itself. Oh, I said, when it see's us coming it starts itself. As we were getting in to leave I overheard the gentleman explaining how the new cars are using "facial recognition" software to prevent theft.

I have to say it is the "does it roll over easy" too. But another common one I have is it a COD Jeep.

Last weekend some guy came up to me in a parking lot saying he just got a new wrangler and asked which one I had. I told him it was the freedom edition. He replied "oh well mine's just a regular sport. It's more suited for offroading than the special editions"

Actually, I don't think she's far off base. I have an unlimited and take the front doors off, but leave the back on for the kids. If the controls were on the driver door like most vehicles, I wouldn't be able to control their windows with my door off.

That's the first (and only, now that I think about it) rational reason I've heard of why they're on the dash.

Not so much with a 2-door...

This is a great line to say to people and see how long it takes for them to catch on. You would be suprised at how many folks don't get it right away.

Not sure if this counts, but with my adult daughter visiting and having no fun getting in and out of the back of the jeep (especially since I constantly put the rear seat down, and she has to lift them back up), my wife asked: Can you get steps for that thing, knowing that I took off my MOPAR steps when I had the dealership put Rubicon rails on.

I told her I would check, and promptly ordered Ace Sliders.

Well, I put them on (what a relatively painful process for something which should have been so simple) -- Love Them -- but the wife and daughter hate them.

"No really great steps," they then complained.

I mumbled something about it being too late to return them, haha and started looking at a new hood.



Note to self: Make sure the wife doesn't read these forums.

Would make a nice PSA -- especially in NO, haha.

Not true! Chrysler would have to make 2x dash designs. Much cheaper to do one and done.

So I'm out washing my baby today....neighbor and his wife are out walking, and he says..."Oh, you got a new Hummer".
Quickly noted to him that this is NOT a hummer....and that such comments are not generally appreciated to the brethren...got a little nervous chuckle from him after that.

Not really funny but totally unexpected.

Today I was at NaPa grabbing another tire gage.
Swapped in my spare and there was at like 50 psi.
Airing the tire down a car pulled up and a older lady got out. My guess 70-75 years old.

Lady "Will those tires fit on my car" she says jokingly.

Me "haha sure"

Lady "those are tough"

Me "well thanks"

Like I said .... Unexpected

Simplifies the interface between door and vehicle... Have you ever seen the wire bundle on a door with power windows and locks? Its MUCH bigger than the little plug on a jeep door.

Never considered the back door only issue. I doubt that was an inentional design point, but having kids, I do run with only the back on occasionally, so I'll take it

Lol, on that note... Look closely at the openings for your gauge cluster and passenger airbag... And the vents... And all the controls... And if you have an auto, at your shifter... Notice a lot of symmetry? My right hand drive dash, cotrols, and even shifter (the button is reversible) are the same as a left hander.

Nice engineering/design trick

Not really about my Jeep, but related...

When Brown Santa brought my coil lift and new shocks, I guess he was a little taken aback by the weight of the boxes. When he saw me at the door, he looked up and said "good news, sir. Your anchors are here."
