My Wranglers biggest fans

So my top has been dropped for a while, and over the winter I installed a soundbar. Today is in the 80's, and I'm loving driving around in this fantastic weather, music playing.

So who's going to give the admiring looks? Young adults? Teens? Other drivers in their covered cars? Girls (fingers crossed?) No, my number one fans today have been......

Little children.

I went to fill up this morning, and a two little kids walking by with their dad made him stop, and loudly exclaimed "LOOK DAD, HE'S GOT NO DOORS!" Their eyes wild with excitement at the possibility of one day owning their own. They reluctantly trudged off, still looking back while holding dads hand.

Next stop, dog park, throw the ball around for a bit. A nanny and a little boy and girl are playing in the soccer field next to the parking lot when I was leaving. They boy followed me to the car (this was actually the dog), but once they realized the dog was getting in the Jeep, him and his sister became yet again, like the other two, infatuated with the Wrangler. Their nanny had to pick them up and drag them to their van!

Also, little kids holding their parents hands while they walk along the sidewalk all crane their necks. I guess the idea of a topless vehicle with no doors is every little child's dream.

I just thought I'd share, it's been cracking me up all day.

Don't bother with this, your Wrangler will have better luck:

I agree. Kids love the topless/doorless jeeps. I pulled up to an intersection one time and there was a little kid in the backseat of a car next to me. He had his window rolled down and yelled to me, "Cool Jeep!"

Same here! I'm about to be 17 and I got my Jeep a couple weeks ago too and have received a lot of positive feedback and comments from kids at school. I've loved Jeeps ever since I was a tot also. I have a whole bunch of miniature Jeeps and 4x4s somewhere in the attic.
