True on that. I have found a lint roller works pretty well though. I won't roll my clothes, but I'll spend an hour rolling my seats

TheyCallMeSnow Somethings I have realized in 2 years of Jeep Ownership

1. My girlfriend loves my jeep
2. My mom hates it because its to big.
3. My girlfriends mom hates it because its to big
4. The first three I listed are a huge plus. (no moms in the jeep, someone will understand me)
5. My Dad sort of has the Jeep thing
6. My school hates it when I pull in with a muddy Jeep
7. People give some strange pissed off looks when a clump of mud hits their nice fancy car.
8. Im on Wrangler Forum to much during school.
9. Im supposed to be doing a 12 page english paper right now
10. People wave.

DurbJKU Cleaning is a b!tch! There is more crevices and hard to get to spots then I have ever seen. I get done spending 2 hours washing, drying and detailing it, than I pull the top off, f_ing DIRTY under the top! Ahhh!

xzy In six months I've learned...

1) There are a lot of impatient drivers...... behind me.

2) Most guys wave.

3) I spend too much time staring at my Jeep.

You could get your own stainless jeep cup and just have them pour you a small.

DurbJKU 73. If I didn't have a garage jeep ownership would be a lot harder. Its on my garage with the top down. Lol.

its been 25 yeas since I have owned a Jeep, last one was a 1980 CJ7, so these are the things I get to look forward to.
Today has been really nice so far..can't wait for the weekend! I will be waving wildly at all White/black Rubicons this weekend!!!!

I understand that he has given up his black hole research, and is now spending most of his time trying to figure out the relationship between jeep windshields and small rocks.
This is FUNNY!!!!

EricShanaFG 1. Rain or Sunshine still no windows. Keep the drain plugs out at work because it will rain and flood very easily.
2. The floor panels get really hot in traffic with no carpet. Need to get it lined.
3. The slowest I have ever driven. A good thing, many speeding tickets later.
4. Ride the slow lane going up large hills or get it regeared. Wallet is already empty.
5. Kids love the top down even when it is raining.
6. Can't hear anything going down the road. Radio low and just enjoying the ride.
7. I enjoy looking at WF to much and I have started to learn how to work on my own vehicle.
8. Easy to park. Except in parking garages. They scare me. I haven't found out exact height yet.
9. Bring sunblock for the ride home.
10. Keep a sweatshirt in the back. You never know when it will be cold in Hawaii.

GSDgirl 1. I really have Just Emptied Every Pocket

2. I am looking forward to ripping out the carpet

3. I can't wait to take the doors off

4. Tuffy Tailgate enclosure was my best purchase so far

5. I get a bit upset when I don't get the wave in return

6. I am really disappointed in myself when I don't wave back in time

7. 50 degrees really isn't cold enough to put the windows back in

8. I should have bought one sooner

Errrr this is how I feel at this point! Good thing there is an abundant aftermarket for the Jeep! Definitely my favorite vehicle I've owned. I was always into going fast...now I really don't mind going slow and am loving the fact that the Jeep can go almost anywhere!

kjwhite622 No matter what, your tires are never big enough, nor is any speed bump to large to ignore.

One of these days a nice bump is going to rip that cup open and send coffee everywhere.
Who the hell gets a small Timmy's anyways
