Form over function?

I really enjoy utilizing my Jeep, taking it off road and testing it's limits.

I'm not as concerned that my paint is perfect, although I do appreciate a good looking vehicle.

It's close, but for me it's function over form.

How about you?

For me, it depends on the Jeep.

Im not gonna beat on a new JK, like I would an older XJ or YJ.

My XJ right now is function(even though its broke). My CJ will be both with ARBs, and good paint.

I wheel My Jeep and it is also a DD. I would NOT have a Jeep, if I didn't wheel. Wheeling causes damage and dirt. Proper function helps avoid, walking 30 miles out of the back country. I think a thick covering of dirt and a few dents, looks better on a Jeep than shiney paint, anyway.

If it aint dirty, it aint a JEEP, it's just a SUV.
