How do you park your TJ?

I find another 1 (or 2) TJs even if I need to take a couple of more steps

I park at an angle, taking up 2 spaces. That way nobody can scratch my mud.

Those are 15x8 MB72 alloys. Discount Tire discontinued them a year or so ago.

I get gourmet coffee every morning at 7-11. One morning I came out and a guy was getting out of another red TJ that was lifted with nice tires. I walked over to my stock 4 banger and said "Look, your Big Brother is here". Other guy laughed.

I never park next to TJ's or any high vehicles. I only park next to sedans, that can't reach my doors to ding them. Wanna-be Jeeps will love to slam their doors against your Jeep out of jealousy. 16 years and I have no door dings.

Rock slider that stick out just a little are good for the morons that like to just swing their doors open.

Anywhere I can/want. The other day went to the mall with the family- no spots anywhere so we climbed up in a piece of grass with a tall curb. Came out and noticed a few others had followed suit. Jeep perks.

Thank-you. Nothing fancy, MCE Gen II flexible front fenders w/3" flare, trimmed stock rear flares, and some faded cheap Trail Gear sliders.

No disrespect here, just curious. Do any of you guys/gals actually pull into a parking lot and proceed to look for another Jeep to park near?
There was/is another thread around here where folks were looking to park near Hummers. What's next, Fiats?

I'm just happy to park, get out, and get in the store. To each his own

When I came out of Lowe's Hardware today and walked to my Jeep in the parking lot, my key would not work in the door. Because it has a few years on it I sometimes have to turn the key first to lock position and than back to un-lock, but that still wouldn't work. Just as I was thinking I had to call AAA, I took a closer look and realized I was at the wrong red, ragtop Wranger -- mine was parked in the next row.

I look for another jeeper before I kill it, well as long as it isn't on a hill. My parking brake needs to be adjusted!

Couldn't you just unzip the window if it was a ragtop?
