I pulled up to a filling pump after returning from an offroad trip still all nice and dirty. A woman at the next pump said her son in the passenger seat saw my Jeep and commented that he just died and went to heaven. My reply was, "I just got back and it was wonderful!"
After a trip to the offroad park one time, I had a woman stop and tell me "i dont usually get jealous of other peoples vehicles, but that looks like you had so much fun! That thing is awesome!" Lol....not specific to TJ/LJ but I bet that lady went and test drove a Jeep.
I had an older gentlemen at a Mc Donald's, say that I had a sharp looking jeep. I said thanks, then he asked how much better the new Jeep did on MPG and I told him is almost ten years old and he said it looks like it is brand new and went on about how I took good care of it and had such a nice Jeep.......so I took him for a ride lol
A Guy I work with told me he hates the look of Jeep's and that mine is a Barbie Jeep cause it's white. I just laughed, but he got stuck in his chevy and called me to get him out, so when I got there I played I'm a barbie girl song really loud with his friends rolling!!! he is 25 I'm 45 he was soooo mad
I had a lady at Walmart the other day she said she really liked my jeep and has been looking for one, I said thanks. She then asked what year and engine I had, I told her 02 TJ and 4.0 straight six, she then said I'm sorry I'm looking for the 99 with the V-8 that the best jeep ever made. I told her never herd of that model and her and husband just looked to confused and walked away. There son kept saying wow he's even got buckshot mudder I can't believe it it's a real jeep. Started my poor 4.0 and left with my head down in shame. LOL
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 school event for my elementary boy one night and as I was walking down the hall with him a guy asked me how much I wanted for my Jeep. I told him it was not for sale, but said "thanks for the compliment". It was not until we were leaving that I realized I had driven the van to the elementary school so he had seen me in the Jeep previously and was wishing it was him. Don't worry I live in one of the safest places in the country.

I was washing my Jeep in my driveway one day and the UPS truck pulls up and the guy yells out,"That's a jeep you should be getting it dirty not cleaning it up!" I just smiled and told him he should have shown up 30 minutes earlier and seen all the mud on it then lol
