I don't know if it's been said, but, when you have no idea what the top speed is because the fastest you've seen and are willing to do is 70mph

I'm joking, but I haven't driven that fast in my jeep yet. I've probably went about 65 and I forgot I was driving the jeep, no problems at all.

I'm not about it being scary, I live right in the central valley in Cali and it gets windy, I used to drive a corolla sport and wouldn't even mind hitting 110mph with the jeep, I love the slow pace.

Depends on the ride, of course I'll take the TJ over any other vehicle, but feeling a 5.7 hemi v8, just steeping all the way down, hitting 100+mph and hearing the roar of a monster of an engine is an adrenaline rush just like hitting mud, or a nice trail.

Well there are always exceptions. Wish I saw those enough to believe otherwise but unfortunately most of the ones I see around this town are buttoned up with the AC blowing. You know, the same types driven by people that don't wave. Peace be with you.

I gave a ride with the top off and the girlfriend asked "why are the doors still on?"

Worthy.

(btw, one of the doors was stuck, hence both doors stayed on...)

When ur at the local tire shop and a random guy pulls up, says "is this ur jeep?" "why yes it is" "I'm looking to buy a jeep and I really like urs so I have a few questions"

Then we talked for 20 mins about jeeps, and I made a new friend today cuz of the jeep! He left when I left. So he came to the shop just cuz he saw my jeep. I thought it was hilarious

The love of a good woman far outweighs that of a Jeep, or any other vehicle for that matter. I would rather have her and a rusted out Pinto, than no one and the nicest Jeep on the planet.

Understandable, I would probably (in my 18yr pov) not sell the jeep we would just buy another vehicle for cruising. But that's now who knows what il. Do when I find the right girl
