I have the "JK" sticker on mine and one of my co-workers said it was the "just kidding" edition...

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.

Well on my temporary registration is says for model, "Jeep Wrangler TK". Kind of sad that the dealership doesn't know what it is.

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."

My ex-girlfriend: Why doesn't the vanity mirror have a light?

Me: It's a Jeep, be thankful it even has a vanity mirror.

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

I've had two dumb questions asked. The first is " is your wife okay with you driving the kids in the Jeep?". And the other question is how does it do in the snow.

yea everybody seems to think that they flip over if you look at them wrong. in reality, they are at the top of the list for "least people killed"

I should know, my last car was #1 on the list for "most people killed"

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.

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!

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.

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
Teller: awesome!

Sometimes I'll forget and wave when driving my wife's Liberty. She simply says, "Idiot."
