cdeslandes That so much mud would fall off the Jeep that pretty soon my driveway will be a dirt track!


That it's like a big erector set, everything is bolted to something else and can be unbolted and tampered with.

Holy shit, I did this lately and thought I was nuts!

tsnell Nobody told me I would need to admit I have a Jeep problem, join support groups and get on the internet and read about them for hours & hours. Not to mention taking a brand new vehicle the places I have taken it.

take her for a drive with no doors or top. just be careful, you may not be allowed to drive it after

Sougent I've learned that the 2014 Jeep that I just bought feels too modern and "fancy", and has too many plastic bits.

And that I'm very tempted to rip out all the fluff in the interior, permanently take off the doors and top, then drive it through a dense, uncleared forest to give it a banged up look.

But, the sensible part of me will likely prevent that. For now.

Can't wait for the newness to wear off.

Paul_G That me and wife could agree on same vehicle. I said I wanted a jeep and she said ok. When we found the 12 Rubicon with 2.5 lift and 35's on it I liked it right away and later she admitted 'I hope he likes it' and I admitted 'I hope she doesn't think it's too big (tall)'.

The fact she would like playing in the mud and climbing stuff. 12 hours after we bought it I was playing around on open roads and would go over curbs to get to a parking lot. I would just get a stare. I took her muddling and climbing through trails and now she looks at big dirt mounds on constructions sites and asks me if I think we can climb it.

Didn't know the jeep would give my wife tendonitis from pulling herself up the grab handles or from closing the tailgate.

That my wife, bless her soul, said that the jeep makes her feel like a 'cool chic'. (Can't wait to get her to drive it around topless/doorless)

I took her on a 7 country tour of Europe on a motorcycle last summer. She was hooked. Now she is planning a trip to take the jeep so we can take the dogs with us. (At least she knows how to pack light now from riding)

DavidN No one told me the damn thing would autonomously, and without any help from the navigator, head straight for every mud puddle it encountered.
weird how it does that.

RodtheRebel I finally have the motivation I need to go back to school and use my GI Bill. The money I get from my GI Bill goes straight to mods (and a couple of new guns).

Johnny Vintage That the ECO light is a scam.

That the seat height adjuster handle scratches the shit out of the leather.

That the door strikers are too small in diameter and you have to wrap electrician's tape around them to stop the clunk on a $45,000.00 vehicle.

That something this expensive does not have a back up camera.

That a vehicle in this day and age does not have gas struts to hold up the hood or a light.

Correction. At the time GPs were manufactured by Ford AND Willy, Chrysler's predecessor. Also, GP did not stand for general purpose. G stood for government and P was a symbol for an 80" wheel base. In the late 1930s, there were many types of vehicles, bombers, boats, trucks, etc, all named Jeep after the cartoon Eugene. Some even had the character painted on the side. When the first "jeep" was introduced the publicist said "you can call it a jeep"

He may have been trying to say G.P. But I guess we'll never know

Seriously? You've never owned a motorcycle? Or a Corvette? Even Mazda Miata drivers have the wave.
