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

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

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.

|j_strength||I was at the car wash washing it with no doors on and some guy says, "why did you take the doors off?" I replied quickly without thinking and said, "because I can." Then I added, "and for fun." He walked off with a confusing smile on his face.|

Mom was driving my TJ the other day, I was coaching her through driving and telling her about how it handles and various "Jeep things"
Then another TJ passes and waves (I'm instinctively already waving) She looks at me and bursts out laughing
I tell her "and that's one of the best parts"
She said "I think I'm beginning to understand why you love this so much"

Pulled up to a gas station and walked inside to pay for gas.
Cashier: "Is that your loud-a@@ jeep out there??"
Me: "Loud? I don't have any exhaust on it or anything"
cashier: "No it sounds like its broken!" (referring to my automatic locker making some fuss)
Me: "OH.... No it's not broken at all. You wouldnt understand!"

There was a track in the lawn at work where some car had tried to get up a shallow bank and had to back down.
A friend saw my muddy Jeep in the parking lot asked if it was me. He asked why i was laughing. I had to explain that the tracks were too close together to be an LJ, too skinny to match my tires, that I wouldn't have had to back out, and that driving up a shallow bank wasn't even kind of interesting...

|SweetRed99||When the doors come off my neighbors always ask... "Aren't you scared to drive on the highway?" I just laugh and think if they only knew|
