I am surprised how many people don't know the top comes off. When I say "I can't wait for it to warm up so I can take the top off" they keep replying..."OH I didn't know the top came off of this one!!!!" Really?
I did have one friend say "so um WHY did you want one of these?" Had to laugh!
Upon seeing my new JKU with matching hard top, my friends wife said, "Oh I thought you got one of the convertibles."
When I told her it was convertible, she looked at her husband and said, "Asshole! I told you the 4 doors were convertible! We're trading the minivan!"
More a silly thing I said to a guy I was chatting too at a party the other night. I didn't know he was a serious jeeper and was going on about my new jeep and how it's so cool, blah blah blah... I then asked him if he ever had one. Turns out he is a serious offroader, big time. Showed me photos of his buggy he now rides on trails and some videos on his phone. Totally made me feel like a newbie! He was pretty cool about it though. Learnt a lot just listening to him for 30 minutes.
Had a reunion in November 2011 with several buddies.
I had bought my 2011 JKUR two months earlier while one of my buddies had just bought his 2012 JKUR with all same options. "What a coincidence!!" I said.
He says "Yeah, exactly the same except you got the 4 cylinder."
I went through the drive thru at the pharmacy doorless - the girl asked me if it came with doors or not! I told her no, they were extra & I couldn't afford them & that it was gonna suck when winter came.
I've recently bought my Jeep and was telling a buddy at work about it and all of the things I have ordered for it. Apparently another co-worker overheard all of this and how much upgrading costs and said "dude, it's just a Jeep, I bet my truck can go anywhere your Jeep can. Plus I have a V8, I'd smoke you in a drag race" I just shook my head speechlessly! Moron
A guy at work with a Tacoma questioned the sexual preference of my Jeep because of the color (Crush). I explained I got that color so that the guys I wheel with can keep track of me in the woods and not take the wrong trail. He said "Ahh, that makes sense." A couple weeks later we got 3" of snow. He didnt make it to work.
Someone looked at my lifted, muddy jeep and asked me if I've ever taken it off road..
Earlier this week I was in a parking lot and parked next to an all whte color matched 2013 (judging by the wheels). Mine was still just filthy from wheeling this weekend and when I was getting out the owner of the other jeep was walking up and said "do some 4x4ing?" and I responded that I had been at the Badlands this weekend etc and we struck up a quick conversation about how awesome our jeeps were. I asked him if he was looking forward spring so he could take off his top, he responded with "oh my top doesn't come off"! I responded with an exasperated "who in the hell told you that?" and proceeded to explain to him that it does in fact come off. I was shocked, and he looked a bit ashamed.

An easy response to that is that H2 and H3's are in fact Hummer wannabe's.

I get this all the time, and I am ok with it, as long as they do not do after I have corrected them.
I went through the bank drive through last week and the teller told me she'd only give me my withdrawal if I traded her my Jeep. She then spent the next five minutes drooling over it and asking questions about it. Like could she make one of the kids ride in the back so she could get rid of her minivan.
Actually... that wasn't a silly thing to say at all. I told her to do it!
Well on my temporary registration is says for model, "Jeep Wrangler TK". Kind of sad that the dealership doesn't know what it is.
More likely than not, that's your state's motor vehicle registration abreviation for "truck".
JK, TJ, YJ, (notice there's no "JKU") are nothing more that factory body style designations. They mean very little and are not well known outside of our community. Before the Wrangler, CJ was the actual model (followed by a number designation) and meant Civilian Jeep.
"I've got two things in this world, my balls and my word and I don't break them for no one."
Wasn't in my Jeep, but had my black "got Jeep?" hoodie on (coworkers got it for me), walked into the bank and the conversation went:
Teller: cool, you have a Jeep?
Me: yup, 4dr wrangler
Teller: a wrangler?! I have a Liberty. You Wrangler guys have that wave, right?
Me: laughing, yes we do
Teller: I started my own, I call it the Liberty (she stands up and does a Statue of Liberty pose with her arm)...but nobody has done "the liberty back to me" (her coworkers looked at her like she was crazy, lol)
Me: laughing again, I promise if I see ya around town I'll throw a "Liberty" your way
