A guy I worked with stopped, took a long look at my Jeep and asked, "why does a guy do all of that to a Jeep", I said, "so I can drive over stuff", he says, "why do you want to do that?" I replied, "so I can get to more stuff to drive over"

Funny, my ex asked me last night when I dropped my son off, "Does it have doors?"

I dropped my daughter off for cross country practice. They were having a special workout at a nearby field so it gave me a chance to take the Jeep off pavement. When I pulled up, the coach said, "Where are the doors??"
I gave my usual Doc Brown influenced reply, "Doors? Where we're going we don't need any doors!"
She did say she loved the Jeep. When I told her she could go for a ride, she said "Nope, not without any doors!"
Meanwhile, the other CC kids were gathered around admiring and complimenting. My daughter got a bunch of cool factor points when I told them it was hers to drive when she got her permit.
I've heard "Why do you have to have two of them?" a couple times now. Truth is that I wish I still had every one that I've ever owned. I always regret parting ways with a Jeep... Especially when I have to see someone else driving it around.

I was at a red light and a guy asked me if I got a good deal on my jeep and what I paid for it and if I liked my jeep? I looked back at him with the strangest look like why would you ask somebody what they paid for something and then isn't it obvious why would I buy a jeep if i didn't like it. As Jeff Foxworthy says, " here is your sign"
Jeep club had a meetup the other night in a Target parking lot and a couple of girls pulled up in a car of some sort. Here's how that convo went:
--Them: Whats going on here?
--Me: Jeep club meeting
--Them: Do you guys do mud runs and things like that?
--Me: Yeah. They don't get this dirty stayin on the pavement.
I was laughing about it for a while. Same meetup, a guy rolled past in a smartcar or a fiat 500 with a soft top... he just stared and moved slowly by kept stopping to watch us. had the soft top pulled back so we could see his face as he's looking over his shoulder. When he was leaving a while later, he rolled by slowly again, but had his top up this time and didn't stop nearly as much.
Since I lifted mine and did a few other mods I get a lot of; Is that the same Jeep you used to have?
Then I get; Wow it looks like a completely different vehicle! I want it!
Sometimes I get; How much you want for it? My reply; You would be better off buying a new one, be cheaper anyway. To buy this one you would have to pay enough for all the mods on my next one.
A cop at a check point said, "I'm considering giving you a ticket for having no mirrors"... I had the doors off. What a dick move. Btw, he didn't give me a ticket because another cop at the checkpoint was a jeep owner and told him to back off. HAHAAAAaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaa
I'm a girl and I tend to work on my jeep right outside my apartment, anytime I'm doing something (whether replacing the bumper or just putting the top back on) my neighbors come out and ask if I need some help. They then proceed to say they have no idea what they're doing but helping to lend a hand, "I shouldn't have to do it by myself".
2 things, 1) I can handle my jeep just fine on my own, 2) if you don't know what you're doing don't come near my jeep.
