When rolling into a 4wd park,a young fellow yelled at me to "get a real four wheel drive",two hours later we offered him and his mate a ride back to campsite after wrecking their "real" Nissan Patrol.We wheeled loudly past that camp many times over the next day or two...
Good for you man! Thats awesome!
I was at a red light and this punk is a late 90's all stock land rover was turning and as he drove by (with his guy "friend" in the passenger seat) He yells out "Shouldve bought a land rover!" While I have my top and doors off with my Girlfriend next to me.... I looked at her and she laughs and says "He's kidding, right?"

Ex-Wife: "Did you see the sticker on that? It's a gross-polluter!"
Ex-In-law: "Don't buy a Jeep, buy a Toyota or a Mitsubishi!"
Former Co-worker: "Those vehicles are terrible! They destroy the environment and kill poor animals!"
Brother: "You should sell that Jeep! 10K will be enough money to pay off bills! Then, you'll have F-U-Money!"
Father (RIP): "Your Jeep drives just like your Grandfather's (RIP) old pickup truck! Do you remember your Grandfather's pickup truck?"
Dad drove both an FSJ Grand Wagoneer and a Grand Cherokee. He was my favorite passenger.

funny story. about 2 years ago i let my buddy drive my jeep down to the store and it was prolly the 2nd time ever he drove a stick. He did good but when we got back in my driveway he shut it off then he was trying to get the key out of the ignition not awhere there is a small button behind the key you have to press in to release the key.
Friend: " key won't come out"
Me: "push the clutch in"
Friend: "still isn't coming out"
Me: "push the clutch in, and the gas pedal"
Friend: "isn't coming out!"
Me: "push all 3 pedals in"
Friend: "OKAY NOW YOUR F**KING WITH ME!"
Wife and I were heading in from opposite directions to meet a group of friends.
Somehow we managed to arrive at the same time and both pulled in at the same time.
As I was getting out of the Wrangler and my wife was getting out of her corvette, friend yells accross the parking lot:
"I figured it out, you two really are Batman and Catwoman!"
Cant say I was offended.
But to be honest, my wife looks a lot better in spandex than I do.

"Hope" is NOT a strategy
The other day a teenage girl working the drive-thru said "she loved my jeep it's her dream car." Not sure what bothered me more...her calling my jeep a car or her wanting to contribute to the teen girl driving a wrangler fad and wussifing my jeeps name.
I had a girl do the same, all I did was look at her and say "ya, I pay out the a$$ for it too. You'll need a better job then that to pay for this" she didn't look to happy after that
That is awesome, I would so rock that. Where did you get it? I have this app on my iphone and it calculates MPGs. I'm at about 13.6
I had a local sticker shop make it for me. pretty cheap and it was put on my them. idk what mps i have cuz my speedo is off so that meens my tack is off so cant get a true number but id say bout 15 for me
I hear a lot of people who had Jeeps wish they had them still. I don't want to be that guy either.
I love seeing women drive jeeps. I've also seen car seats and kids in the back having a good time. Some reason people think you will get decapitated with convertibles and Jeeps. They say that's dangerous? I'm like how many people you know lost their head in a jeep?
I lose my head in MY Jeep all the time!!! Just sayin' Ron
"Gas is STILL your cheapest thrill!"
I had a guy ask me if I'm afraid to fall out without the top and doors on. Then he saw my grab handles to help my kids get in and said "Oh you have those handles so you should be okay." I told him, no I have seat belts to keep me in when I drive. So he tells me he never wears a seat belt. His face was priceless when I asked him if he noticed what I was wearing. I was my police uniform coming home from work.
As the saying goes you can't fix stupid.

At my age I am not afraid to say I am now mostly a Mall Crawler, but a lot of times I have the muddiest Mall Crawler around. You can curse a Mall Crawler but at least we don't own a Trailer Queen.
Had a guy today try to tell me how to load my boat on the trailer, like he's the local expert. I've been doing it for forty years. Then when loaded he says your not going to be able to pull that out of there (kind of a steep , rough , wet ramp) I pulled up the ramp and into the parking lot and didn't look back.
Almost forgot, this other guy, when he found out I got a yellow jeep, started saying all this crap about how I had a "gay a** yellow Barbie jeep" I showed him a few pictures and mentioned how he drives an 80's el camino and he shut up real quick!
Another friend of mine, who knows next to nothing about cars, was hanging around while I was showing a couple of guys my jeep, and little things about it. When I popped the hood he said "so that's why your always talking about it. Nice!"

Too funny had to share, my daughter is 5 and heres a cnversation we had recently.
my daughter says: "Dad, look at that monster truck right there"
her: The one with the big tires.
me: My tires are bigger than those.
her: But thats a truck not a Jeep. Trucks aren't supposed to have big tires, Jeeps are.
Random Guy: "Is there anywhere that thing cant go?"
Me: "Yea, past a gas station..."
