I still love all this attention that my Jeep seems to generate

it was an unanticipated aspect of jeep ownership.

The number of unsolicited positive comments I get since the lift and tires went on is amazing. I get more comments on this vehicle than any other that I have owned.

The latest from the coffee shop this morning:
Stranger: “That looks like a serious, go anywhere, anytime Jeep.”
Me (casually looking toward the jeep): “Yes. Yes it is.”

My favorite was the time at the ATM when I hopped out of the jeep and a hot soccer mom immediately approached me and asked in a friendly voice: “How many inches do you have?” Then, when I looked to see that she too had jumped out of a stock jeep similar to mine, I responded with confidence : “3.5 inches”


Though I don't own one presently, I used to own several different motorcycles over the years and the number of other motorcyclists that waive at each other in passing is only exceeded by the sheer number of jeepers doing the same thing.

I don't get any comments. I let my wife drive just one fucking time and she gets all the compliments. Maybe it is the 7 day no shave, tats and the don't fuck with me look I have.

That's what a DILF is supposed to look like.

Maryland might be part of the problem. Aside from the mall crawlin' soccer mom types, most Jeep owners wave and talk to each other here. Heck, I went to Best Buy yesterday to pick up a new external DVD drive and a guy in a nice Super Crew about broke neck with repeated neck whips looking at the Jeep as I was pulling out and driving away. I got a wave from a Daystar rep driving a F150 in the same lot. I think geography plays a part in that enthusiasm and sense of community.

Challenge accepted. Not commenting.

























Oh, alright. That's a really slick Willys (no pun intended). Always have wanted either a panel or a truck. One day maybe.

My wife drove mine one day to get some food. So she orders the food and before she drives off she hears over the speaker "Hey dude, come here you need to check out the hot chick driving the lifted Jeep." So she pulls up to the window and says "You really need to learn to not key the mike when your talking about hot chicks in lifted Jeeps." Both of the young enough to be her kids turned beet red...

And the thoughts I get everytime a girl in a bikini does the Jeep wave to my wife....

For me, the best is when some kid sees my Jeep and I hear them tell their dad "Look at the cool Jeep, dad!"

Or the ones that are so mesmerized they forget where they're walking.

Had somthing like that happen the other day ..

I was driving behind a later model Corvette ..passed this lady and her kid walking on the sidewalk..


The mom was like "look, look son, look at the nice car.." as the vette drove by

he looked and did not react

I drove by

he came to a dead stop and started shouting "Wow mom... look.. wow"

That's my favorite - the kids' reactions. I have three young sons myself and they just love the jeep.

Well, I'm already married to a MIlF (refer to quantity of kids), so n no need to go off the farm.

That, and I pitched the AEV lift so some soccer mom's hubby got an enthusiastic spousal approval on a lift. Hopefully that's a better option than cheating wife.

Oh, i try to wave back at any kids. My youngest still goes bonkers every time he sees a vehicle with a spare on the back - yes, sadly that includes RAV4's.

That and I'm a techie at heart and would not pass up an opportunity to see how you implemented something on your jeep, or which brand you went with for this or that.

LOL... not for me. That is a topic in and of itself. WHat I am speaking of goes beyond waving. Like I said, I rode on two wheels for years and jeepers seem to out-wave even motorcyclists. no need to expand on that. For the record, yes, I wave whether I have two or five wheels.

There are an ocean of BMWs, Lexus, exoctics and other makes around here so I suppose the jeeps stand out more than in other towns. That and mini vans, camrys, accords etc. There is an auto museum nearby so there are always hot cars of various kinds trolling around in this area. Oh and we have a but load of blinged out hummers running around here too so a muddy, rock-contacting jeep stands out.

when I come out of the hardware store my (read: not even that highly modified) jeep is just as likely to have a small crowd around it as the red Italian sports car that might be parked next to it.
