Snowing outside? What is that? Here in north Ga I've say less than an inch total since I got my Jeep two winters ago. Guess ill never know what driving in snow is like.

When everyone else is just as disappointed as you are on the days that you don't drive your Jeep!

I have been driving it only on Mondays and wheeling trips so I can save some gas by using the Ford Focus. Now everyone is bummed when the Focus rolls up! It is hilarious and depressing.

When you don't use drive throughs in the winter because you are scared of tearing the window even more from zipping and unzipping it. Plus it's more fun to go through it doorless!

When you get on campus (or anywhere, really) and can take the "compact car only" spot because you are short enough to fit.

When someone has walked out of the store to see you under their Jeep checking out their armor and sliders. And they dont get mad, instead you stand and talk for an hour about future mods.

When people give you weird looks because they see you park in a lot, hop out, and take pictures of another Jeep, then hop back in yours and drive away. (I wanted to be able to look up parts later and didn't wanna forget.)

When you drive with your windows down during a thunderstorm, because if you don't, the wind bows you all over/off the road.

When you park ON the parking block. A security guard at a hospital "had a talk with me" about me parking like that even-though it was on the outskirts of the parking lot. I'm sure he drives a Prius.

Just because you can, doesn't mean you should. That is really disrespectful an gives Jeep owners a bad name when you do stuff like that.

Yes the parking block is a guide not a prop. It just shows immaturity IMO to park on one. I've saw Jeeps parked halfway on a sidewalk before, it's the same premise.

I'll agree that it isn't the most exciting thing to do and a little immature (I don't do it myself), but to say that it is "very disrespectful", that it "gives jeep owners a bad name", and is essentially the same thing as parking halfway up on the sidewalk where there is pedestrian traffic overstates your case somewhat, methinks.

But that's the great thing about opinions, we all have them and they don't have to agree

You know you drive a Jeep when . . .

You get out of your Jeep at the store and set the car alarm only to realize you left your doors at home in the garage.

That's what the shock sensor and proximity sensor is for!

When you park your mud covered jeep in front of a small town convenient store and the cashier asks where you've been while others take pics

You do a little dance when you calculate your gas mileage after filling up and see that you broke over 17 mpg on that tank.

There's no "disrespect" here, it's not like I parked in a handicap spot or blocked an ambulance. You weren't there and have no clue the layout of the lot and how busy it was.

Lighten up dude. You're not my God, don't judge me.

Woah, easy, I'm not judging you just stating an opinion. To me parking lots are no place to have fun with parking your Jeep in ways not intended by the property owner, that's all.
