I have a battery tender battery charger quick release cord that I have coming out of my hood.

When people ask me what that black cord is coming out of my hood, I tell them the Jeep is a hybrid and thats my charging cable.

Used to do the same thing when I had a Viper. (battery was in the back of the car and I had the cord coming out the bumper) The look on people's faces is priceless.

I was walking past my boss and his buddy as he was saying " I told him buying a Jeep was gay..." I stop and turned to him and said "..Realllyyy..........how come you don't have a parking full of them thennn.......". Turned and went about my business. What a ball-buster...I'm on to his little game though....

We were mudding on my buddies ranch and he drives a f-250 with a 6 inch lift and 37's, so he said that my jeep couldn't go through a puddle......

Guess who pulled his "badass" truck out of the mud, my "puddle scared" jeep did

In the recent snow storm, several (men and women) asked me to pick them up for work.
I have a neice that will do almost anything for me if I let her dirve my Jeep. I thinkk for her Birthday i will take her off road and let her drive. She is a good kid (25 year old kid) and deserves it. Only whishI had the $$$ to help her get her own.

I had an old guy stop me at the store - he looked at me with a semi-disgusted look, the way only 80 year old men can, and asked me if I was planning on taking 'that thing' on safari.

Safari - now wouldn't that be fun!

What an idiot. As soon as they start spewing lines like that I lose all trust. No way am I going to try and buy a vehicle from someone like that.

Okay so this has happened several times over the past two weeks. Jeep parked outside at work. Big Ron is working the register and I am I. The back doing manager crap. 3 guys @ 3 different times have come in and said "dude is that your jeep?" Poor Big Ron says no it's my bosses. Let me get her for you!

Surprised you have that on your windshield... I would imagine having a couple of PO's saying a thing or two... Maybe they are just distracted by the pink letters on the hood or the gobs of mud... Either way, nice Jeep.

I just took delivery of my new 2013 Black Rubicon about a week ago. Well, I decided to polish it today and yes being Black it has a very high gloss to it.
I stopped at the gas station after polishing it to fill up with gas. Right next to me a fellow in what looked like a new Escalade got out to fill his. He came right over to me and said WOW, I need sun glasses on to look at yours, shall we trade vehicles. Obviously he was kidding his $75,000 Escalade, verses my $37,000 Rubicon. But it did make me feel pretty good!

If you traded you could have bought two! If you sold that useless Escalade.

On topic, I was once told, "Nice Jeep...are you worried about it catching on fire?"
