Mall crawler here and proud of it. Just because our Jeep says that it is trail rated on the badge doesn't mean we HAVE to. In fact, I would be willing to bet that the majority of Jeep owners do not take theirs off-road.

Rosie will never get her tires dirty from going off-road for the 10 years or so that we will own her.

We bought ours for towing behind a motorhome when I retire.

While I do not have any plans for serious off roading, that does not mean it may not see a logging road or trail once or so in it's lifetime.

Not sure, what does that qualify me as?

Maybe not a "mall crawler" here... more of a snow-wheeler and convertible lover. Jeep is the only 4x4 convertible I like.

Finally got it...

I gotta keep my Jeep in top shape so I can get to the mall when the zombies attack en mass. I'd be bummed if I broke an axle in the woods the day before the apocalypse... LOL

I don't think those guys are really categorized as mall crawlers.

I bought my Jeep for the "because I can" features.

Why did you take your top off?.....because I can.
Why did you take your doors off? ......because I can.
Why did you go down this path/road/trail?.....because I can.
Why do you want a lift and bigger tires?....because I can.
Why are you staring at my breasts?.....oops, sorry, that one's not Jeep related.
I just like to have options.

Your daughter has good tastes.

Our Rosie is short for Rosie the Riveter, the famous name that symbolized the factory working women during WWII when the Jeep was first introduced.

I saw a 2012 MW2 edition at a restaraunt last night. I watched it througout the night to see who would get in it. He even had a witty claymore hitch cover.

Of course, it was the guy with a cane, and every bit of 400 lbs. I hope he wheels, but I couldn't help but think of the "Mall of Duty" badge.

I wish more people just loved Jeeps for being Jeeps.

The styling is cool.

Being a convertible rocks.

Being nimble is amazing (as in tight turning radius - not sports car through twisties)

I like the Zombie link

Being easy to modify and personalize for anyone. If you doubt this one, check out other vehicles and see whats there. go fast stuff (if you willing to tear apart a new car and possibly void the warranty) or simple generic made for every car past on crap. Jeep stuff is custom made to fit for each model. Usually looks tasteful when done.

What other vehicle has a concealed carry underseat box designed specifically for it?

It maybe the Barbie toy to accessorize for grown boys, but it still is damn fun.

I have yet to drive another vehicle that can put a smile on my face when I get behind the wheel without breaking any laws. The others all made me want to hit 150 mph, or see how fast I can take corners...

Different strokes, but I have no desire to mangle my Jeep. It's primarily a mall crawler but heading to Moab in a few weeks to do some of the (hopefully) no damage to the Jeep trails (does that make me a mall slut?). I bought it to get into the back country for photography but it's also my primary daily driver. My only problem with the pure mall crawlers is that most don't wave.

Mine was a Mall Crawler from where I bought it to when It got to my house, and all the previous 115k miles. Perfectly clean 05 Rubicon, the lady that used to own it would probably have a stroke if she saw it now .
Its now a towed to trail, wheeler. Still drive on the road some, but it's 80% trail 20% road.
