I rented a liberty when I was home on leave from Iraq. Hadn't tagged or insured the XJ while I was gone. Hated it. I think the new body style Libby looks like a Dodge Nitro. In fact, I cant tell them apart sometimes. The commander looks a lot like a XJ.

for some reason most of the parking spots i find are always beside other cherokees and even weirder is that a lot of the time when im leaving the other XJ's owner is almost always putting stuff in theirs its strange some kind of mass conspiracy or something

well i dont know if my jeep feels any better parking next to worse looking jeeps. the zj i parked next to was in about just as good condition exterior wise as mine. only problem is the girl that owns that zj parks in the far corner of the parking lot and im used to parking in an area near my team members (i work in front end and she works in hardware) so i couldnt really see my jeep all night. maybe my jeep will like parking near the jag, cirrus, neon and crv i usually parked next to when i drove my sebring. if jeeps like parking next to vehicles theyre better than, then my jeep will like it's new spot alot

There are three XJs in my work parking lot every day. Mine and two others. One of the others is an exact copy of mine .... same year, model, color .... I mean they are dead on twins. I saw the other driver trying to get into mine once.... it was pretty funny.

I try to park right next to his as often as I can. They are the two oldest vehicles in the lot .... kinda cool I think.

i did that when we had a black explorer(dime a dozen). i walked up to the back of another black explorer same wheels color ect.. popped open the hatch and there is a guy putting something in the back seat looking at me.
im stunned that a guy has my rear door open and doing something in my truck then wifes says thats not ours... i apoligized and felt like a rear.
Mine was 1 car away down the row.
I can laugh about it now. i almost had my stuff from menards in the back of his truck

Back to topic.
At school i park on the end of an isle so everyone can see it.
everywhere else if there a jeep and a spot then ill park next to it.
i only consider wranglers and cherokees jeeps though
So libbys and GC's etc dont count.
And i read the patriot is supposed to be the replacement for the cherokee.

i thought thats what the liberty was? since it started in '02 and i thought it was called a cherokee in other countrys?

what about the jeep 2500(i think thats what it was) i woudlnt mind one of them if they have a solid front axle.

Sometimes I come out of class only to find ddeadserious parked next to me.





Other than that, parking at school is a royal PITA, so I cant choose to park near anyone I want anyway.
