Met a JK snob today

I ran to the grocery store early this morning to get some breakfast stuff and when I came out there was another good looking JKUR sitting next to mine in the back of the parking lot. I waited for the person to come out hoping it was a hot female Jeep friend. It was not. This guy and I were talking and he said he hated how everyone who owns a wrangler waves at him because all the ones with bone stock wranglers will never get a wave back from him. I was blown away as everyone I have met that is a fellow Jeeper is a nice person and waves to all other Jeepers.

His JK was pretty amazing with a TF 4" lift with flexarm kit and 37's, but I still can't believe how ridiculous this guy was.

how is that too much???

When I park almost 100 yards from the door and there's not another car within 50 yards of mine when I go in and then I come out and there's a monster JKUR sitting next to mine and I wait 5 minutes till they come out.

Maybe you're right and I'm just a huge stalker and not a JK fan or a friendly guy and I just haven't picked up on it yet

Or maybe you're the asshole I talked to this morning. Just saying

If they look like this actual photo of me, then it's a pretty safe bet they're a Jeeper. This is artwork I had designed for my web site Chrysler shut down 10 years ago: jeepmadness.com

Are you not aware of the Jeeps parking next to other Jeeps thing? I agree with lolpetewtf.

Bet he doesn't know how to work on any mod that's on his Jeep either. Bet he just wrote a check.

They shut you down ?? What was the "legal" reason ? Are you able to disclose it ?

You were giving them FREE advertising !!

Most companies don't care about free advertising, they don't want you hurting their brand or something

a guy named Mike Rowe, who had mikerowesoft.com got shutdown by Microsoft, because that sounds like Microsoft

I find a few "younger folks" don't do the Jeep wave to us "older looking folks"
I was at Miami University and there a dozen Wranglers and none of 5 I waved to waved back !

Cease and desist using the Jeep Brand name in a URL or in a web site. I owned the domain name from 1998 to 2003 before they threatened legal action against me and no amount of leeway was given, even though I was promoting Jeeps and it was not for profit.

I think it was because your hair was on fire. Jeeps and fire are not a good mix. How long did you have to pose for that logo with your head burning like that? Has it grown back?

You always park next to another Jeep. 1) it's like Jeep networking for the drivers 2) your stuff is safer 3) it gives your Jeeps a chance to mingle while you're shopping.
