Is Your JK a Virgin?

It would be interesting to know how many people buy a JK because of it's looks vs. off-road capabilities.

No. '07 and '13 were offroad extensively. '14 has been in the dirt a few times already. It has 1300 km on it.

We bought ours and 1 week later top & doors were off. A few weeks after that it was the Manistee National Forest. Best vehicle ever made. It is 1) my wife's daily driver 2) our weekend convertible 3) our boat or SUP hauler 4) our sand rail.

Mine had 300 miles on it and was bone stock when we got it really muddy and surprised ourselves doing it. Truthfully I would always rather be off road but there just aren't enough places where I live. It looks and performs great on or off road to tell you the truth.

Yes, but not for long, hunting season is coming up, and I plan on going into the Rocky Mountains for some cruising.

Difficult to say cause "Off Road" means different things to different people. I've been Hunting with it on long gravel roads, been through some muddy ruts & dips that cars can't get through, but My old F150 would have been OK also. I don't really call that Off Road but some would. I have however had the Tops off, and doors off on several occasions and I could not do that with my F150. I've been through so much snow with it that I had to take pictures it was so surprising, but that is still not "Off Road", that was just my driveway. I bought mine for the following reasons:

1 - I just love the looks of a Jeep. Always did, even as a kid watching Macgyver.
2 - Versatility: Fully Dressed - Good on worst days of Winter, Naked - Great on best days of summer.
3 - Jeep Community
4 - Parts availability and easy/fun to self maintain.

Many other little reasons

EDIT: Oh... and here is the snow in my driveway I went through

I guess off-road means the gravel on the side of the highway. LOL. On a serious note, to me off-road means that you've had to use at least 4H to get through.

I took Rubi on some nasty trails two weeks after she was adopted. Couldn't believe how easy it was getting through some areas with both lockers on and sway bar disco. I would have had a real hard time with one of my old CJs. She got a couple of battle scars on her hips. Gave her a good massage and facial and she's looking good again.

Jealous. Was stationed at Hill AFB and did some nice wheeling back in the day.

Mine is 2.5 months old and has already winched herself out of the mud four times and off of a high-centered rock once. Definitely a slut who's only getting skankier.

Still pure. There really isn't anywhere nearby for a day trip, and getting a full weekend free during the summer is damn near impossible (another wedding?!).

Celticon is going on his first jeep club trip next week to Padre Island for some sand wheeling! My favorite!

A branch scratched up the clear coat from the rear door all the way to the back along with rear right fender. Managed to buff it out.

Can I get a "Rubicon - Because it was the easiest way for me to get all the features I wanted and unpainted fenders" option.

Is that the same as cool factor?

I have enough random scratches that I can lie about it!

Who said I was going to be in the back? The back seat is removed anyhow, I'm thinking against the outside would be fun. Will check tailgate height, too. Did I type that aloud?

It's kind of like a grandpa getting a Corvette that never goes over 55 MPH - He looks cool though. If you got the Rubicon to get all of the features you were looking for then it's not a cool factor. If you were looking for those features, then you had a need for them.

Met a guy at the parking lot the other day with a 2010 Rubicon. I asked him how he liked the diff locks and he said, "what?". He bough it brand new and liked the Rubicon decals and why he got it....that's cool factor. LOL.

No problem with cool factor, we've all done it.

LMAO. Throw it in 4 wheels and get it deep in the forest where no one can see you. No pun intended.
