So the wife and I were coming home from dinner...

And we pass this red Wrangler X.

Wife is driving (it's her Jeep) and she asks me "What is wrong with that Jeep?"

I look over...I see a Jeep. Hard top on, it's red, looks to be in good shape. It's a Jeep. I say "Nothing"

Wife: There's something wrong. The bumper is messed up.

Me: No it's not.

Wife: It's different.

Me: No. That's a stock bumper.

Wife: You Sure?

Me: Yup. Stock bumpers. Front and back.

Wife: I'm telling you there is something wrong with it. What's with the tires? They look wrong.

Me: Those are stock too.

Wife:

Me: That's what's going on here and what is making everything else look weird. It's a stock Jeep with no lift and stock tires - so the bumper and fenders look really big and it is sitting so low to the ground.

Wife:

Both of us:

Just thought I'd share.

Lol I know what you mean! All jeeps (to me) look silly stock. Since JKs have the big bumpers and flares they tend to look out of proportion (to me). But with a little lift, mud terrains, and trimmed fenders, JKs look freakin BEAST MODE.

I rented a stock Wrangler a few weeks ago. It felt tiny.

Jeep did it on purpose to give us a reason to modify them.

My jeep isn't huge by any means but when I see a stock TJ I can't help by saying how "cute" it looks. But I do envy the get up and go they have when they're all stock.

Stock wranglers still look better than a modified Liberty. When I see a lifted Liberty, all I can say is "Awe.. that's just too cute."
