I have a Ford Mondeo that I use with no charge. It's my "Office-whore".
What do I do? I drive at my own costs with my "Sarge" a 2000'er TJ....
In germany the Jeep is an exotic rig, but it's my best "car" (a jeep is not a car!!) ever.
I owned a Rover SD1 V8, two Chrysler in the 80'th, a Mercedes, a BMW, an Intermeccanica Indra, but the TJ is my first real rig that gives me a lot of fun and brings up a big grin in my face.
(Sorry for my english.... it's not so good)

If my short ass could get in and out without using the side steps - I would.

05 Yukon Denali sitting at home in the driveway while all 5 of us packed into the Jeep this morning.
That's right. I added a middle seatbelt so that my kids could all ride and it could be carry us all too and from.

Not the only one

I only got my Jeep a few weeks ago. I also have a 95 chev 3/4 ton 4x4 and a 08 Ford F150 4x4 as well as a 94 Harley Sportster and a super nice 05 Honda VTX 1800 custom trike, but yet I always seem to jump in the Jeep anytime I go anywhere. It has even taken the place of my Yamaha Mule or the Timberwolf for chores around the farm. lol.

There are some practical applications for the side steps. My 9 year old rides with me all of the time, and he uses the step. I use my TJ on the ranch regularly. I generally take the TJ when I go check on my sheep. Lots of stopping on top of hills and glassing. I like to stand on the step to get a little or elevation while glassing. Same applies when hunting. Having said that, I rarely use the step to get into my TJ. But, it does serve a purpose for me.

EDIT: Oh, and the step serves a good good place to scrap the crap off of my boots (sheep poop....a lot), before I get into the Jeep.

Many a coyote has fallen to me standing on the step with my M4 on the bipod across the roof of my beloved "JJ".

You just feel like you can go anywhere in a Jeep, and you feel like you're prepared for anything. If there was a sudden massive earthquake with rocks from fallin' building all over the ground, or an aggressive alien invasion, or a flash flood, what vehicle would you choose then? Of course, it would be the Jeep. You are just staying prepared.

Until you figure a way to take the top off the truck, or get the bigger tires on your 'Vette, the TJ will always be your favorite!

Its just a jeep thing you have to own one to understand. I to have other very nice vehicles but only drive the jeep, hell I was going to store it away for the winter & couldn't even bring myself to do that. Even bought a plow for it to have an extra excuse to drive her. Oh yeah, its a jeep thing!

Maybe we are all just crazy!! I have a bmw 535, a suburban and my 98 tj w 120k miles. The wife likes to drive the bmw but every chance I can talk her into jumping into the jeep, we take it.
I have been replacing parts on the jeep recently but it's still my vehicle of choice. In the last week, I have had a bad power steering pump, bad ignition coil, bad freeze plugs but I fix the issues and on I go driving the jeep.
The jeep does have the best stereo out of all our cars but it's far from a luxury vehicle. I just love driving the jeep.

I do the same! Two newer model vehs in the drive way and even with having AC issues with the jeep here in the Florida heat, I prefer to jump in the Jeep on the weekends.
