I'm more likely to park next to a built XJ, wait for the owner to come out and talk to them about the mods they have.
Stock rigs of anykind don't move me, I KNOW mine is better, and the stocker owner doesn't care about what I have done to mine.

I always try and park next to another Jeep, just for comparison. It's ridiculous how much just 3in looks next to a stocker.
