Counting Jeeps on the way to work.(SHOCKING!!!)

Just for fun,I started counting Jeeps (WRANGLERS ONLY!!!)on the way to work and on the way home today.I drive 50 miles to and 50 from work everyday.(Drove just a little more than that today I took a different route home .(Got my new tires mounted today.)

SO,How many do you think I passed??? I counted 42 !!! Those are just the ones I saw while still trying to pay attention to my driving. Out of the 42 ,34 of them were JKs/JKUs the other 8 were TJs/YJs.(NO CJs at all.)

Doesnt that seem like quite A LOT to you???? In my area here,I think I have MANY "Jeeps per capita". than other areas????

It's like that around here too. Most of them are bone stock JKs.

Tons here too! I'd say every other one is modded. Quite a few heavily modded. Mostly JKs but some TJs. One awesome orange CJ!

If you think that's a lot, go out to Cape Cod...You'll pass hundreds of them daily. Almost every street you turn on you can count a handful that are parked or driving by. It's crazy yet mad cool because the Jeep wave is HUGE in the cape.

Since looking at purchasing a JKUR, I see Wranglers wherever I go. Saw a beautiful Crush with big lift and probably 37s. Then a black with 33s. The rest were stock or about ready to fall apart. LOL

Well, its not that extreme here in south Florida, but there are still PLENTY of them around here. In a quick 5 mile drive, I'll usually see anywhere around 2-4 different JK's, Tj's, and your YJ every so often.

Here in Cottage Grove OR they are everywhere. Most are not modded much but you can tell they use the hell out of them. And this time of year you very seldom see one with the top up or on.

That happened when I started looking at Jeeps to buy. I began to notice ALL of the wranglers around me throughout the day and I would count like 10-15 on every car ride. It's crazy how that works

I roll in a 12 JKU - I wave all the time without fail - but it's 50/50 if I get one back. Some of the TJ's looked shocked to get the wave from my 12 jeep... I'm gong to be the one in my town to set things right!!

Here at Camp Lejeune, NC we have a large quantity of Wranglers also. One of the Marines I worked with drove an F150. So we had a contest to count the most - the F150 won. I guess those stats about being the number one selling vehicle are right.
