I followed your point with interest until you got to the part about education; then you lost me.

Plan for the rear wiper nozzle is to put it in the wheel well so the Jeep can pee on other vehicles to establish dominance.

Too many teeth and not enough hacked together three wheelers to take them seriously.

Several years ago while stopped at a stoplight in my TJ, I felt a bump from the car that was behind me. I got out and looked and didn't see anything. The lady rolled down her window and hollered "I didn't hit your little car" (she was in a Cadillac). I later got a Beaver step and use it from time to time in both Jeeps.

Last summer when I stripped down the TJ prior to it going to a restoration shop for a full paint job (including removing the PO's snorkel) when I removed the rear tire carrier there was a small crease line at the bottom edge of the carrier. Needless to say I was not pleased, even though when I got it back the crease was gone.

I got a good lesson about 15 years ago when I was rear ended hard while I was in my 2000 Ram 2500. The vehicle in front of me stopped suddenly and I was able to stop from hitting him, but the guy behind me wasn't. I had a frame equalizing hitch in the receiver which I had nicknamed a serious hunk of iron. It took out his grill, bent his bumper and broke a couple of headlights. We exchanged contact info, but did not call the cops. The damage to my truck was a bent holder for the Pollack 7 pin trailer connector (factory installed) which was broken. It cost me $12 to replace the connector. It took a few minutes to straighten out the holder and $2 for black spray paint to paint the holder. I never sent the guy a bill, as he had more than enough to cover.

Anything sticking out beyond the spare tire will protect the tailgate in all but a real serious hit.

I also have a secondary use for the Beaver Step - it's great for connecting chains to when pulling stump and posts out with the TJ.

I had one not too long abo in a white Silverado come off the exit go through both lanes and driver's side tires hit the inside median before he looked up from his cell phone. Guess he just said a couple "Hail Mary's" and went back to his phone while he was merging into traffic?

Thank you for being so gracious Mrs. Reynolds.

Lots of damage to my Chrysler 200, none to her Mercury MK something.
I'm in Houston. What is ice?

Actually, the gas station incident happened on Obama's watch.

This has got to be the most insane comment in this whole thread. Sadly, I don't think he's kidding. These are the people that scare me; not illegal immigrants.

I could make several comments, but I now know better than to foray into the political domain on this forum. Look mods, I’m turning over a new leaf.

If anybody does have a spike made for a rear, or front, receiver, make sure its barbed so you can drag home your spoil of war.

After you’ve impaled your bounty and gave burial rites, take caution not to exceed the towing capacity of your Wrangler.

I come here for Jeep tips, not DIYs on trailer hitch battering rams and quick-draw gun rigs. Trump has us all riled up (including me) - let's try to keep it calm.

BTW, the Tundra driver that I backed into was civil and understanding. I appreciated his demeanor - let's try to emulate it.

You got that right.
Everything is Trumps fault, really!!!
No accountability for themselves, blame somebody else,,,,, right.
I'm 65 years old, and I'll be planted in the ground before this country recovers from all the damage that Obummer/socialist a'hole did, if it ever does!!!

My ancestors first hit these shores in 1603.
A bigger wave of them came over between 1660 and 1663. They traded in human flesh and killed the indigenous people they found here.
They didn't apply for a green card. I'm thinking that the Esopus and Shawnee considered them "illegal" because they kidnapped my ggggggggggg-grandparents and tried to burn them alive.

Just sayin.

You’re ancestors were settlers not immigrants and did what pretty much everyone else in the world was doing. Doesn’t make it right, but you certainly owe no debt for their behavior.

Well, I'm happy for ya.
They were settlers, not immigrants, totally different situation.
Would have been pretty hard to get a green card in 1660 wouldn't it

Mine came from Scotland as immigrants, in 1918, with a sponsor, went through Ellis Island, and took tests to become citizens of this great country.
They got jobs and contributed to the country, not freeloaded like the current trend!
They didn't crash the f'ing border, rape rob and commit felonies and evade taxes like the "immigrants", and I use that term loosely today!
They did not expect anything for free, nor did they get anything for free. They worked HARD for what they got.
I remember the story Dad told me about WWII. My uncle was the oldest brother, but as a high school football star, had injured his knee so when WWII broke out, the Army would not take him. At dinner that night, Dads Mom and Dad told him that he has to go down and enlist to defend this great country that allowed them to come here to better themselves.

Not much of that happening anymore!!!!
I miss my Dad, and grandparents, but in reality, I'm glad they're not seeing the destruction the last POTUS did to our country.

Just sayin
