It's a great feeling when...

You used to have a stock jeep, no one notices you...then you all of a sudden hook your jeep up with a sexy lift and tires, and all those people you used to wave at, that never waved back see you ride past, and all of a sudden they are waving at you, or pointing at you like you're the man and they've known you all their life.

Or when you're riding home from work and get behind a school bus full of high school kids that think they have the best everything, and think they are just the coolest. And they sit there breaking their neck for the 10 minutes you're stuck behind them.

Let's try to make a list of things that make you proud to be the owner of a jeep:

It's a great feeling when...Your idea of the PERFECT Jeep is already sitting in your driveway.

I just experienced this. lol. I had my stocker for a year before I threw a 4 inch lift and 33's on it. Though I have noticed one thing. When I lived in Texas 90% of Jeepers waved, stock or not. Up here in Washington, I hardly get any waves

I wave at everyone too, except the stuck up people who never waved back. And yes i totally agree with the perfect jeep already in your driveway statement.

In my part of Texas we wave at everyone and they wave back. Don't need a Jeep to be friendly...try it.

I definitely know what you mean. I get much more recognition now with my lift and tires.
