Only the people who are bitching about everyone else.

Who cares what people use their Jeeps for. When i had my old YJ i had it in 4wd probably 4-5 times a week because i used to access fishing areas and to take people out that i was guiding for fly fishing trips.

Fast forward 15 years and I have since sold that Jeep, had a subaru for a while and now own a JKU. I am realistic in that my Jeep will not see offroading to often because of other commitments, hobbies, school etc...btu i can say that i will be upgrading the stuff i want to upgrade full well knowing it won't be used to it's capability.

I woudl probably say 95% of the jeeps that people off road are not on trails where the upgrades they did are needed anyways. It is pretty rare that someone is making upgrades and mods to their jeep solely based on function and not looks...

n00g7 If I stopped breaking mine cutting across the parking lot and on rocks I'd upgrade it.

True that! But now I'm feeling a little insecure about my '99 TJ with a 3 1/2" pro comp lift, 35's, and body armor! Oh well, I LOVE IT and around here I am totally unique

proride Well, I have a '13 JKU that is almost 1 year old and it only has 1,700 miles. It was my dream to get a Wrangler, but now that I have it I don't drive it. I did intend to do a lot of trails, but I find that I don't have as much time on the weekends as I had planned. My first passion is motocross, and that takes up my time with racing and riding on the weekends.

So, the wife does take it to the mall a lot. She loves the Wrangler, otherwise I probably would of got rid of it already.

But I am going to do the trails in Big Bear this weekend!!

Mine is stock right now (got it in January), I have a teraflex 2" BB and a new set of BFG mud terrains in the garage waiting to be installed. I'm getting it ready for some wheeling/camping trips after the summer. I like to offroad for 6 hours then pull off the trail and camp. The little short, hour long trips to get the rims muddy isn't my thing.

whiteyjfm Yes, your friend is a mall crawler. Sad, but they are out there. It is heart breaking to see, but I guess to each his own.

Idriveoverstuff In oc/hb people scoff at our jeep or take pics like its a themed build as a joke...

When I explain I climb water falls for breakfast they get confused... So many rubicons around here and no wheelers. It's mind blowing

RadarRob2012 Jeep has done extensive surveys on this. 70% of all Wrangler owners are women. 90% of that number never take their Jeeps off of the road. So I stand by my assertion that women but Wranglers because they are cute, and men but them for their capability. And my Jeep is not cute, it's wicked cool. Lol

Rob, you know you bought your Jeep because it's cute and can Leap tall rocks with a single bound

My Jeep isn't cute, it's bad and it can crawl the mall and rocks

The guy that had his 2012 JKUR built at the same time as mine at Dennis's shop has never taken it off road. Dennis has had it back in the shop putting more mods on it and said it will never be wheeled. I'm keeping my eye on it, someday it will be for sale and worth looking at. Full roll cage, lift, bumpers, wheels & tires, skids, etc.

happy2jeep They are cute-stock! When they are built they are HOTT! I have done most of the work on mine and I'm in that "will take my girly Jeep off road any chance I get" 10%

Here's a neat little fact for you. Jeep did a survey and found that 70% of all Wrangler owners are women. Of that number, 90% never go off road. They buy them because they are Cute.

Lol! I think were talking about the same friend! Always an excuse. I finally told him, why did you buy a jeep? You should have bought a civic.
