|42yrs First Jeep||While stopping to get lunch yesterday I came out to a newer JK parked behind me. I got closer and the lady jumps out and says are those LCD lights and where did you get them? I said yes and Quadratech. She said I gotta get some of them and drove off.|

I did this the other night at my Daughters winter concert at school. My ex-wifes boyfriend(who drives an old corolla...lol) said" your gonna get stuck on that". I just looked at him, laughed and said "It's a Jeep dummy".

My 75 year old neighbour took one look at mine when i got it home for the first time last week and asked
"Why you purchased that ugly little thing"
Jeeps dont have quite the same heritage here in the UK
He cant understand why i keep buying non fuel efficient vehicles - i also have a Jeep SRT8 and F150 Supercharged all doing less than 15 mpg when fuel costs $10.40 a gallon
I tell him i need to do these sort of things in case i drop down dead next week

So I parked up on a snow pile at school. As I'm walking to the school some girls are walking to the parking lot.
"Did you do that on purpose?"
"Why would you do that?"
Uh...because I can
"Oh. I like your car!"
What I say: thanks
What I'm thinking: ITS NOT A CAR!! >

stopped at a gas station the gas station attendant had to see what pump i was on and saw my LJ all he said was I love you jeep and would love to own one someday then we got in this long discussion about how much jeeps have changed from when he sold them in the 90s then he told me he wants a 99 Purple tj.
Then i was walking out of the hardware store and some guy was touching my jeep and looking at the fenders as soon as he seen me he walked away really fast

|BLK00TJ||My co-worker told me today that my Jeep is definitely not a mall crawler and looks well used as it should be.|

When I go to the mall (hey my Jeep is my DD...don't hate) I like parking on the upper levels, nobody ever goes there. To get up, there's a tight helix of painted concrete you have to go up (about 40 feet)
Well the security guard stopped me when I got up and told me to slow down, he could hear my tires squealing the whole way. I laugh and say I was going just a few MPH, hardly the 20 most people do. He says bull shit. I tell him "it's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand" and slowly turn into a parking spot at full lock, making sure the tires squeal some more for him
He gives me a blank stare and drives off

|TCiriello||Going through the drive through at dunks a teenage girl working the window told me she liked the color of my car. I asked her if she could even see what color it was under the mud and she said it was a nice blue...... got my coffee and left. I have a neon green TJ!|

Wife's boss to her. "Why do you drive that thing?" (He's a BMW owner)
Wife to boss. "I drive a Jeep because of my Father and my Brother. They drove Jeeps in foreign countries, bleeding and dying with their brothers in arms, protecting your freedom and giving you the right to be an asshole."
End of conversation...

When your tj is apart of your identity,
"You know that ___ guy?"
"The one with the jeep"
"Oohhhh yeah I know him"

Just bought my '01 TJ in August with 150k, and all my coworkers are like "I usually get rid of a car after 150k miles" and "all engines are the same, doesn't matter if it's a jeep it will start falling apart soon" and every day I get asked "how's the jeep."
Granted, the clutch went out after a few weeks, I just changed the valve gasket, thermostat, ... but it's awesome, and as for mileage if you take care of a vehicle they will last for millions of miles. My parents have a '99 Nissan Altima with 270k miles. Matter of pride for me.
Wife drove some kids she was babysitting and they couldn't figure out how to roll the window down (manual crank), called it "beat up." I think it's rather nice for 150k and 12 years, wouldn't trade it for a JK.
