That fresh "jeep" smell

Jeep has been in the workshop a lot lately, gears, lift, and other things.. Anyway it reeks of PB Blaster and gear oil.

How do I get the smell out, I want to puke every time I drive it

Eventually it'll fade, same thing happened to my parents' ZJ when they got it oil under coated. If you can't stand it, maybe try masking it with some air fresheners for the time being?

Fill socks with Baking Soda and hang in your Jeep. Or sell it and buy one of those plug in Prius' I'm sure they don't smell like a Jeep or anything else with balls...

It sounds like a good excuse to take the doors and the top off for awhile. Just be grateful in this instance that you have a Jeep.

What would you do if it was a 4x4 pickup truck? Nothing but suffer through it.

Just give it a real good clean. Take out the carpets and wash them with rug cleaner or something along those lines. Clean the seats with some sort of upholstery cleaner (depending on the type of seats you have). Next wipe everything else down with wipes/armor all. Then just get one of those air freshness that go on your AC vent.
All of that did wonders for mine.

Wow! You heard that too? I thought I was the only one. But you have to use knee high sock not those little ankle ones. .

Certainly by "50 times more powerful than backing soda" they meant "baking soda", true testament to the schools of America! That on a corporate site like Home Depot proves that the "no child left behind" theory will not prove beneficial in the long run!
