M_Jaco That I would drive a few miles out of my way every rainy day on the way home from work to drive 500 feet on the 1 dirt road in town
Today 06:03 PM
joeymac Nobody told me how bad the roads are in Minnesota...!!!!
And that the Jk Wrangler, 2-Door can feel every little pothole, crack and manhole cover that they put in the wheel track, and they seem to be installed 2 to 3 inches below the surface.
I new what it was getting into as this is Jeep number 2.

You can manually operate the lock. At least in 2009 JKs.

I'm constantly surprised by how we have become so used to power locks that nobody tries to manually operate the lock any more. I am constantly asked to unlock the doors from rear seat passengers, not only in the JK but almost any other car. haven't found one that cannot be unlocked from the rear (Unless it has child lock on, obviously)

And you can make a pretty good guess who the spouse is because only the right leg is tanned!

RoseBud13 Don't know if it has been said, but that moths suck and will Kamikaze you when you are driving. Especially at night when you can't see them when they fly in your eye.

What Rusty said! I have had 2 YJ's, 3 TJ's, and now my JKU. All five previous had a little tear when I let them go. But age has wisdom... I will not ever be Jeepless again! My wife and 2 daughters have made sure that dad will not get rid of "their" Jeep again!

When we got the JK, my wife looked at it and said "nice but it needs a lift"... YEESSS!! she gets it now!!!!

Schitbrick3633 If it's not strapped in, tied down, or bolted on, it can and WILL fly out when riding naked lol

BEAST33 Nobody told me how much attention I would get after putting on a 3.5 inch lift and 35 inch tires. I turn heads everywhere I go now. Its kind of amusing to see people's reaction when I pull up next to them lol

CoreySmith North east OH, nearly 100% jeep wave from Wrangler drivers. Maybe its because we don't really have much opportunity to do any real wheeling, and still have the Wrangler.....

Other Jeep-branded vehicles, no wave. But Wrangler drivers are high percentage.

Hmm...around here, the only Jeepers that wave at me are one of four:
1. Close friend of mine that also drives a Wrangler
2. Lady who drives a gecko Rubi
3. Yellow JKU that arrived in town a few months after me...guess they liked mine that much!
4. A white TJ that has been modded out and is obviously wheeled on a regular basis.

All the other Jeepers never wave. Not sure what's up with that. Oh, well. I do get a lot of waves from Harley riders, though. So...that's a plus.

bulldog777 For the previous "Door Ajar" posts, there is also one for the back that shows a jeep with the back open.

spinlock That the JK was going to be the first Wrangler road-worthy enough that all of my family prefers to take the Jeep (Not my "thing" as in the case of my previous Jeeps) on road trips when ever possible instead of our old Yukon "family mobile".

Ed Pursell ?? That somehow, talk our wives' into buying her own Jeep....My 3rd one, she has alway's done her own thing, but can't get her into the Jeep family...We have this thing which I like, her vehicle is her ride, my Jeeps are my ride and actually I like it this way because when I look at her stuff, it got the knicks, bangs, scratches, etc from her parking lot days...So, she has no access to my Jeep..Anyway, how do you get the spouse to get the "bug"? Mine might be looking soon, presently has a Pathfinder, but can't get her interested in the Jeep family...I think it's because I like it, she doesn't, almost a power thing

I looked her and said, "I think we should get a lift kit and tires for "our" jeep." Hey....a man gotta do what a man gotta do.
We solved this problem by getting my wife her own Rubicon!
