If you havn't learned this valuable lesson in life yet, then you are still having problems dealing with women.
Ah, It doesn't matter how nice the girl is... It's always the guys' fault, even if she doesn't say it is... AH! girls suck... but sometimes that's not a bad thing... well, you know...

Yes, I demand pics too!

Yea, I didnt think there would be this much response. Yea, it is a double edged sword. First, its awesome that shes ok and the jeep isnt messed up that bad but at the same time, I can let her drive it again, shes not that great, and if anyone is on here for the right reasons, they will understand how big of a deal it is when all the money and hard work you put into an obsession is almost trashed. How many people has this happened to, their G/f's or wife's trashing their Jeep? How many let theirs drive theirs still?

I let mine drive my '01 everywhere... she scares the crap out of me, but never an accident yet. Knock on wood.

She would not get to drive if she was ever at fault though. It is a double edges sword, but you also have to have a spine.

I had a similar thread earlier. Best advice I got was to lift it high, put tons of offroading stuff into it that makes it a harder DD, and women typically don't like that. Especially if you have to hop up to get into it.

Just because she's your girlfriend doesn't mean you HAVE to let her drive your car. Go tell her to buy her OWN car. Heh.

My ex drove my Jeep a couple times (twice I think), only when I was teaching her how to drive stick though.

Would you stop driving yourself if you rear ended someone? If yes, sure don't let her drive anymore.

Accidents happen for a variety of reasons, nobody was injured - the best outcome of any accident (imho).
