Jeep in DC

My first car was an '87 Grand Wagoneer. It sucked down gas, pumped out smoke, ran on 5 cylinders, had bald tires, rust and smelt like gasoline. I loved it like I love having hands. Unfortunately, college drained the wallet and we had to part.

Fast forward 10 years and I'm now in DC looking for a car with high bumpers, a good turning radius for parking and big tires and a nice suspension for potholes. Enter my new Wrangler JK Sahara Unlimited. If my Wagoneer were to have a bastard child with a supermodel, then have that child train with a gang of ninjas and pirates then you'd have my Jeep. I worry not when I parallel park it. I worry not when I hit a pothole. I worry not when I curb a wheel. I worry not when I go camping. I worry not in snow, ice rain, mud or sand. I smile every time I approach and see my beautiful Jeep waiting for me.

I LOVE my Jeep. Now, can someone tell me how to get this thing to accelerate when I'm at highway speeds??

Haha, I feel like your post needs to become some sort of Jeeping mantra or something of the sort. Glad to have you here.

I've also heard:
- "if you want it to move faster, drop it out of a plane"
- "stick your head out the window and it'll feel faster"
- "set your clock back 30 minutes before you arrive and you'll have arrived more quickly"
- "learn from NASCAR, draft a student driver"
- "it's a Jeep, just add more duct tape"
...and, my favorite...
- "more cowbell"

more cowbell always worked for me...

hello! from a fellow DC Jeeper, over in NE. Leaving soon though... -_- but hopefully we'll be able to meet up for some beers or something before I leave. A whole DMV meet and greet or something
