Those are cool, but still not a jeep.

Obviously women drive ZJs too, but I agree with the other poster, there is something very manly about a nicely put together ZJ.

I often pull up at stoplights next to officer worker type guys, clean shirts and hands in their BMWs or Mercedes' convertibles who seem to be enjoying their "manly" 100k midlife crisis cars and look down at them and just smile. Their look back is often a look of disappointment in themselves, kind of as if they realize that no matter how hard they try, they will never experience the true satisfaction of life as a 21 year old with greasy hands in a beefed up Jeep

Oh wait a second... pics of said ZJ with said ZJ driver or it didn't happen!!

Back on topic:

You know you drive a ZJ when for some strange reason you think it would be cool to get a "Soccer Dad" sticker to put on the rear window

At least it would be justified being as I'm (cough, cough...) "slightly modified."
