The Jeep Mystique, pretty simple. It was the first and still is the best.
And folks are in awe of it. Jealous because their ride will never take them where a jeep can. And it's the "been there/done that" look of a jeep and their owners.
OK except for the blingers and Barbies*.
*My sister Barb excluded. She drives a TJ, and it ain't no Barbie Jeep, though she is a drop dead Barbie looker.
Her Jeep is usually filthy and is towing a motocross bike/trailer.

Daughter went to take it out once and came back with dirty water all over it and a big smile. She said she was sorry but when she saw the puddle she had to drive through it. I smiled and said I would be worried if she didn't drive through the puddle.|

|StreetsideStig||I think it goes all the way back to WWII. Sure, there's a Series I Land Rover culture, but there isn't the same appreciation for the Japanese or German or Russion 4x4s of WWII. When I think of WWII vehicles, I think of P-51 Mustangs, Sherman Tanks, and Jeeps.|

|bfortunata||I normally drive srt8 magnum which is stealthy and doesn't get much comment, but when i got a 97 jeep wrangler to drive for the winter to save my mag from the salt I get comments every where I go. Women tell me they wish they had one instead of their mini van or suv, men all want to ride in it when we go out for lunch. When it's parked in front everyone asks about when they come in the office. Go figure the appeal of a 4wd tent on wheels! I've had 4wd pathfinders, blazers, suburbans which never got noticed in my experience the only thing that comes close to the jeep in automotive desire is a classic muscle car convertible. It's the combination of top down, go anywhere, American style that makes every one imagine themselves behind the wheel, automotive freedom!|

|DerekM||I work in an office where everyone drives hybrids and civics. I get a comment at least once a week about how cool my Jeep is. Why does everyone always want to drive it! Except my wife, she hates that I spend so much time with it.|

I like to think everybody looks and says "man that dude is so cool"
but most likely it's "dude put your doors back on. Nobody wants to see your big gut"

I don't know about anybody else but whenever I pull in somewhere, people always stare at my Jeep and everybody I know is like "I want to drive your Jeep" or "I want to ride in your Jeep" People just like Jeeps. I don't know why, maybe it's because you can have a wide variety of configurations from tearing across the sand dunes in a desert to sitting up to your windows in mud. There is a "mystique" about them.
On a side note-I was at work the other day waiting tables and a guy comes in and out of the hundreds of vehicles outside and all the people inside, he is like "is that your Jeep outside?" It's not like it was close to the front door or anything. He just knew it was mine. It still flabbergasts me. The guy said that I just "looked like I drove a Jeep" I don't even know what that means?! haha I am hoping it is a good thing

When we started seeing alot of Jeep knock-offs like the suzuki sidekick, etc (198?) we coined a term for them to help out or ignorant friends. We call 'em "Cheeps"
So my son grew up thinking that there are Jeeps and Cheeps. Proud of that boy.

Right after I got my Jeep, I yanked the Doors and top off and went to my Grandmothers house. My mom and my 2 nieces were there (their dad has a "hummer h3").
My oldest Niece (2 at the time) told me I had a pretty hummer, to which I corrected her saying "this is a Jeep, and its much better than your daddy's hummer."
I was hoping that'd get back to him, but he never admitted it.
