I took my neighbor and his kids out in the Jeep to let them swim in a lake out by the house. We had to track through some pretty deep mud and squeeze between some pretty close trees. The kids were in the back and I heard them say the following:
1.) WOW! This thing is indestructible.
2.) Jeeps are better than Hummers (This one really made me smile)
3.) Dad will you but me a Jeep for my fist car?
4.) (after almost getting stuck) That was fun! Can we do it again!
5.) I overheard some kind of comment comparing a Jeep to the bat-mobile or the bat-mobile should of been a Jeep.
I know they are kids (10 and 7) but still made me smile especially #2! I promise none of these comments were provoked by me.
My daughter - just turned two - LOVES riding in my TJ, especially with the top off! She looks out the wimdow at it and yells, "Daddy we go Jeep? S'a Jeep, Daddy! JEEEP!"
Thats her seat in the back. She enjoys the challenge of climbing into it all the way from the ground with no help. She doesnt know it yet, but on her 16th birthday, its hers!
If you can't find it, grind it!
My 12 year old son sees Jeeps and waves (sometimes before I do), notices when other Jeepers DON'T wave, and has told me on numerous occasions " yeah, that might be a cool looking (Hummer, F250, Dodge, etc...) but your Jeep is BEAST, Dad!"
I was on a camp ground few weeks ago. On the same camp ground also a family with a Land Rover 110. Their kids spotted my TJ and came for a closer look, and one of the kids said: "this is so much cooler than my dad's car"
Not sure if he also told his dad, would have want to see his face lol
