^ That is the problem with Jeeps. They're glamour vehicles now. It's ridiculous. A Jeep is an uncomfortable, messy, durable 4x4. Not a soccer mom-mobile or a mall crawler. Save that for the GMCs.

Totally agree. My husband drives his chevy silverado and gets in my jeep and complains and asks me if I have to hit every bump. But to me, I like to make my jeeps different so they can't say that's such a "girly" jeep or they can't say that my jeep is my husbands. No it's my jeep and yes I am a girl.

Hey hey hey. I drive a gmc lol. Not all the new ones are glamour either. I saw my brother catch air in his 08 chasing let's just say "something", just the other day. His is point a to b, but does its share of rough terrain, and irrigator winching.

same thing with BMW now they aim at the target audience.
my old girl is a real DRIVERS car, no cupholders, no computers to stop for you turn on your wipers and wipe your butt. stiff clutch hard suspension and a work out but ya know what even being 25 years old and just a "regular" 6 series she will smoke half the m3's through the twisties because i can drive!! and there is a bimmer wave too but same problem only guys that wave back are the E30 crowd (boxy 3 series through 91) and the e36 and 46 sometimes (3 and 5 series through 96-7)

Of course, 90% of Jeeps here, even lifted ones, are daily drivers with no thought of offroading, and they rarely own a Jeep for the sake of owning a Jeep. Sad stuff.
I think that's something to be said about where we live. I noticed IMMEDIATELY after moving here the lifted-to-the-sky f-950 quadruple super-turbo diesels that are used as dailys. I see the same ones make the same commutes to the base I work on. Not a farm. Not a quarry. A paved road, plenty of parking having military base. People in dfw love lifted anythings with big knobby tires. I almost die everytime I see one of these trucks and notice there's no front driveshaft or diff. That's a glamour truck. And the same logic applies to Jeeps. Though I get waves from most modded (more than just dealer mods) JKs, but seemingly no one else

I asked him if he was a jeep guy and he said yea, so I asked him if he takes it out on the trail, even tho it is stock, also asked him if he rides with the top down. Anyways long story short, he bought one simply b/c he's always wanted one and will never ride with the top off or take it off roading
When you know your ZJ is built enough to spank someone's Wrangler but they won't take your trail invite. You then publicly insinuate said party is a poser who drives a pavement pounding queen (careful though some people get pretty upset especially on the PPQ thing.)

Note: Doesn't always get them on the trail but they must feel like crap inside. Double points when your other non-offroading coworkers start picking on them too.

Had a buy with a very pretty lifted dodge ram diesel. He used to brag about blowing black smoke when passing people and how where he is from they call that the Kentucky handshake. Long story short a buddy of mine gets hella stuck in some mud in his wj, I call up the dude with the truck and he declines the rescue cause he just washed it and didn't wanna get it dirty.

Took us close to 5 hours and a random stranger (in a kj of all things) to get my bud out. Some friend, eh?

He wasn't a bad dude, just didn't get in with offroading culture. People just like wearing the costume. Ever try picking a fight with a dude wearing a ufc shirt? It's the same concept.

It's like Halloween year round for them, and they get to drive around dressed as their heros - that guy that bought a jeep for a couple hundred bucks and added about $10000 to make it a wheeling monster
