Not driving your jeep

How many of you have gotten a rental car or driven another vehicle instead of your jeep only to find yourself realizing....."I miss my jeep....this sucks" Had to get a nissan sentra as a rental while my cylinder head in my 2012 is being repaired...cant stand it

It totally sucks when my Jeep is out if commission!!!

I also get really weird looks from other Jeepers when I forget I'm driving a Chevy and I wave.

I miss driving my Jeep if it is not available, but I don't go to crazy. I love my other car and will drive it readily. Only thing that sucks is, I will not drive it in the snow.

If I really need a Jeep fix because I don't have mine, I will swipe my wife's Sahara.

There's a 12 step program for that-

I think it was started by "WILLYS" in the '40s

Had to drive my grandpas automatic, non vtech civic the other day, it sucked. I felt like I was riding the ground and the lack of clutch disturbed me.

When I bought the jk they had swapped them from a sport. Ok by me cause I don't like color matched anyway. They were loose day 1. Brought it in a few weeks ago and just assumed they fixed them...not. brought it in again yesterday and they said they were extra careful and they were fixed right. I get there and they were more f'd up than when i dropped it off
If they screw up again I'm just gonna ask to borrow there rivot tool and fix them myself!

when i went to take mine off to chop them, after seeing the stock clips, I literally decided to remove them by yanking on em real hard. they popped right off. the stock clips are junk no matter how well installed they are.

After hail damage, my Jeep was in getting it's new AEV hood. Took them longer then expected because the Dark Charcoal paint wasn't easy to get. they had to end up ordering from Chrysler the tinting CD and have a tinting specialist mix the paint.

Insurance paid for a rental. At least got a Grand Cherokee with the 3.6 in it. It was a very nice vehicle and definitely had a lot of comfort features compared to my Wrangle but still missed my Jeep every day that week. Couldn't give me another vehicle for mine. Well maybe a Bugatti Veyron or Aston Martin but then I would just turn around and buy a new Jeep.
