Yea I just drive a lot. Plus driving up a mountain really drains gas and then there's driving to and from my college on weekends taking my girlfriend out on dates having to go to my house and back to town several times in a day (I live 15 miles from my town)

Yea all my friends laugh at me and I'm just like you don't understand! Haha

When carpooling is bittersweet. Pros-not nearly as much paid for gas in a week as a day driving the jeep. Cons-it's 70 degrees without a single cloud in the sky and the jeep is sitting at home without the doors and top, ready to just go.

you know you have a jeep when everybody, and I mean everybody, has a different opinion on what you should buy for your jeep.

When you're in New Orleans for martigras and you get beads from a chick to take the top off, and you hand them back and she takes hers off

Yeah but I have these bumpers so if some one does hit the jeep it will be fine, not so much for there car though lol... I had a lady rear end me cause she couldn't stop with the snow on the ground and my jeep was fine and her cars hood was all pushed in.. I told her I didn't need to call the insurance or cops since there was no damage.. But I said we can call if u want since ur car has a lot & she was like no it's ok (since it was her fault).. But I am looking into getting a new rear bumper I want a hitch & this one has lots of rust I was thinking of getting the kind just like the one I have but with a hitch or one that has a hitch & 2 D Rings.. Any thoughts?

Yeah that's the kind I'm thinking about getting but it won't be the tube one like I have now & it won't match the front.. And I heard the tube ones r stronger & protect the Jeep more.. But I like the D Rings

When I ran my spare on the back end I was rear ended by a Dodge Ram...I got new tailgate...he got a new truck

Red sits high enough most cars will go under or directly into bumper (especially when they slam on brakes)

Here is the damage I got sitting at a light when the texting teen hit me at 35mph in a Volvo. He went under and knocked my exhaust loose and bent the cans but the Body Armor 4X4 bumper kept any body damage from happening.
