You maybe right in California you see them everyday

Where you live and how you use the vehicle is a big part of it.

If you are down south or out west it makes more sense than if you are in the midwest. I'm in the burbs of Chicago.....not a lot of use for lockers here.

We have tons of Rubicons between Baltimore/Washington. Plenty of rich soccer moms.
