I love my jeep to death. It's my daily driver. It's 2WD and it makes me sad :/
I'd love to take it wheeling but obviously thats not a possibility. And I want to make it nice and beefy looking but considering I'm only 16 and it's my first car, I don't make enough income and I don't have the knowledge to do these things :/

However, It's my first car. So i can't complain.

Why not?

Yes, a two-wheel drive vehicle will get stuck much sooner than a four-wheel drive, but nothing says you can't do any off-roading without a four-wheel drive. Just pick easier trails.

Helluva car for a 16 years old, by the by... Lucky you!

Thank you sir

I do plan to test the capabilities after I put a couple of paychecks into it.

I dont think the word Jeeper applies to me. Ive modified it moderately/a lot but not in the off-road direction. Its only 2wd and its always been kept in too nice of condition to start throwing it around trails. When I first got it I didnt care, but now I can still see the damage. Pisses me off everyday, but thats most likely due to my personality. 3 out of the four times I took it off road, it got stuck. Blame 2wd, street tires, or offroad inexperience, but that was enough for me. Now its strictly street, and it does a good job at it. I love my Jeep to death, but I dont think of myself as a Jeeper.

I know real Jeeps are 4wd, but there isnt much to choose from being a Mopar guy looking for something cheap with power and rwd. 2wd XJs were a decent fit for their time and my situation. But Id like to find an area to live where the outdoors are enjoyable (read: its fricken hot outside in south Fl) and go crazy building a 4wd Jeep.

Getting stuck is a learning experience. It happens to everyone for the worse or better. Shake it off and keep goin

People who say 2WD' Jeeps aren't real Jeeps, need to take a look at Jeepspeed trucks.
What is important is how you use a vehicle and if you enjoy it.
Build a 2WD up for strength and traction, ie: HD shocks, good springs, strong dependable engine, locker and good tires.
With enough traction and torque, you'll be suprised how far you can go and how much fun you can have. I live in south Louisana and I see more 4x4 GC's than I see 4x4 XJ's. Unless you get down in the mud, 4wd is not really needed.
Have fun with it!

If you own a Jeep, and have witnessed how cool they are, then congratulations, YOU'RE A JEEPER!

A "Jeeper" does what ever the hell it is they need to do. If your treat her right she'll do anything you want her to. Just have fun. Do everything with it. Get a couple scratches, get some mud on it, have fun with it. Take pride in saying that you have a JEEP!

It doesn't have to be tricked out or used off road... it's still a Jeep and if you dig it, who cares what other people think? Welcome to the club!
