Think your favourite hat is secure tucked between the seat and center console, as you already had to catch it from flying off your head? Nope.
I miss my hat...

|Sierra Shark||That after you have replaced every single nut, bolt, body part, panel, engine, transmission, wheels, tires drive line, tub, frame, (every part that was made by Jeep when it was new) it's still considered a "JEEP"....|

What no one told me:
That the $40,000 Jeep was the cheap part. It's the Upgrades that cost ;-)

I actually commented to my wife during the first days of ownership that for the first time, I could see the light while sitting up like a normal person.

|UpAtReE||That when at a stop light you have to crouch down to actually see the light. Or its just that I'm tall not sure...|

I have lost more receipts, etc. Think I have them tucked away in a nook tight enough and next thing you know I am trying to catch them as they fly out over the top.
Going to buy a cargo net before next summer.

"My neighbors think I am doing something illegal (All the UPS/Fed Ex packages delivered to my door) Same with the mailman!!
I didn't know that my wife would ask me "Why did you buy the damn thing if you have to make so many modification to it?"
That was after she wouldn't talk to me for two days after I brought it home. She's an Uptown Girl.

|SmugglersBlues||I remember back in the 80s or early 90s Nissan had an ad that was "dogs love trucks!" That may be true but all six of mine love the jeep. (They just dont all get to go at the same time).|

That the old saying
"The only difference between Men And Boys
Is the TONE of our voice And THE PRICE OF OUR TOYS"

"Attitude adjustments" courtesy of Jeep drivers. Sometimes it's not what you asked for, it's how you asked for it. We've pulled people out of mud holes, pulled boats to shore, etc and my grandfather, or dad, would not take a dime. Simply told them to help somebody else when the time came. With attitudes like those mentioned above......hmmm....."how long did you say you wanted to be here?".
For that kind of money though, I might hang around those areas for some "mod money".(for bad attitude folks)

|2008jkcop||Yep. In the snow around here we have a lot of folks from all over stay in the cabins on the side of mtns. They think that "all wheel and 4 wheel drive " mean they can drive the mountain roads. I have fun pulling them out and even giving them rides. I have even went to the store for some folks. Never once have I asked for payment. But almost everyone offers something. But one time I had a guy from PA. He was a real jerk. I had just pulled to mini vans out and he had to stop and wait. He got pissed. He was in Suburban. When he tried to take off, he slid in the ditch. I drove on up the mtn. When I came back he stopped me and "told" to pull him out. I was low on fuel and needed to refuel before I did. I was nice and tried to wxplain it but he just startedto fuss. I left and came back. He asked me to pull him again. I said $400. By the end of the day he paid.|

|Mikel01||My "little" jeep pulled out a 3500 dulley and his 30 foot Donzi from the boat ramp. A guy with a thick NY/NJ accent walked over to me and said "hey you, unhook your boat and pull my stuff out of the water" now being a good southern boy, I said why sure...for $200.00 he said what I think was fuggeda bout it. I launched my boat and said in passing "tides comming in". With 200.00 in hand I locked the rear diff and pulled him out. If he was well mannered as we are, there would be no charge. There is still a wide gulf between us and them. Jeeps are MISSION CAPABLE.|

|Nikao||That modding a Jeep is possibly even more mind consuming than modding a Harley.|

|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|
|10-22-2014 07:03 PM|
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.
