"Silly" things people have said about your Jeep.

Couple days after I bought my JKU.

Neighbor- "Very nice. That's one of those new mini Hummers. Right?"

I had a girl come up and tell me she really liked my new Hummer. I quickly found someone else to talk to.

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.

Seems like maybe the pharmacy isn't her only drug-related activity.

Based on the confusion between Jeeps and H3s mentioned above, I'd have to say the silliest question I've been asked is: "Why didn't you get the color matched hard top?"

You could have responded that a lot of us owners have the color matched hard top. We like ours!

You should have said "No, I take a bucket of mud and spread it all over so I can wash it off. Here's your sign"

About a week after I got my gecko a person in the fast food drive thru said "You glow" referring to my jeep on the monitor.

My girlfriends dad: I never realized how tall or how big your tires were until you parked next to my pilot. It always seemed tiny

I have an eight year old daughter and she she had a rapid growth spurt since last fall. (she grew over 2 inches) We have made several comments about it lately. I put a 2.5" TF lift on my JKU (Gertie) a couple of weeks ago. Last week, as my daughter was climbing into my Jeep, she said " Daddy, I'm not very happy about Gerties's Growth spurt! " Hilarious!!!

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!

My buddy asked "Who gets a Jeep where the top can't come off"? It was the first matching color top he had seen on a Wrangler....

How about

Isn't it cold in the winter?

Or when the top is down

What do you do when it rains

My response

Roll the windows up

"I didnt know there were 2 door Jeeps"
My response "Where have you been for the last 66 years?


People calling my soft top a "tarp"


At a stoplight by a lady in minivan "Hey, what happened to your doors?"
My response: "Fell off a few miles back"

My all time favorite, I was walking to my Jeep from a store, guy and his wife were locking up their FJ and walking past my Jeep. The wife looked at mine and said to her hubby "You shoulda bought one of those instead". The guy had that 'I know but cant admit I was wrong' look on his face
