Apparently all progress and slippery slopes lead to our guns being taken away. BTW, I own two and intend to keep them.

Perhaps someone can attempt to correlate street Jeeps to the 15th, 17th, 19th, 23rd and 26th amendments. Talk about progress and slippery slopes! How many more chefs can we fit in the kitchen?

100% respected because I can see the other side also.

If anything really happens I wouldn't leave any family behind in harms way...but while I'm helping them along I will take a few pokes at you saying "I told you so".
I hope I am wrong.

I would probably consider my 5.9 to be a "Street Jeep" even with its 2.25" BB and 245/75/16s. I think wheeling is awesome but really haven't had the chance to do anything offroad. I would definitely like to do some mudding in the future though (flame away) haha. It's pretty popular here (no real rocks to crawl, sand, hills, etc.). Hopefully I'll get the chance come spring.

I think of my Jeep as the ultimate daily driver. It's kind of like a 4 wheel drive muscle car that is incredibly reliable, can fit 5 people comfortably, drive fast on the highway, has a ton of cargo space, can double as a hotel (I have slept in my Jeep to save money), dominate all the snow, ice, rain and whatever else we'll ever get here in Northeast Ohio and also go pretty much anywhere any other vehicle that isn't a dedicated offroad machine can go (even though I haven't had the chance to do this yet). I've driven it in some nasty winter weather on unplowed roads and it does awesome.

I wouldn't ever lower my Jeep or anything like that but I definitely like the fact that there is a section dedicated to making Jeeps faster and better on the road, since that's the primary use for mine.

I don't have a problem with street Jeeps. I like having a powerful DD thats actually pleasant to drive. My ZJ with a BB, armor, and 31s is a pig to drive everyday, but it'll go anywhere I ever want it to in any weather. I also have a 5.9 for DD/nice weather duty.

A serious wheeling rig can't even be used as a DD... Having a street Jeep too is almost a given.

Why ?????



Because not everyone jacks their jeep up 6 feet in the air.

Some of us use them as daily drivers, but still modify them to make them our own.


Why do some people buy a Civic and only drive it to and from work and others buy a Civic and rice the hell out of it?

As I hear it the 2016 Wrangler WILL be a street Jeep.

The solid axles are gone for fully independent suspension.
The folding windshield goes in favour of an aerodynamic curved piece of glass.
Plastic flares... gone.
External spare tire... gone.

The "new" Wrangler? will be designed for Corporate Fuel Efficiency.

My Uncles first Jeep was a Government Issued Jeep in 1944.
Back when ALL Jeeps were Government Issued.

More time will be required "in the field" when the 2nd shot heard round the world occurs.

On THAT note...I hope to see you and many others in the field

well compared to the many,,, "Jeep wave threads". I would say street jeeps are more relevant.
