This was last winter. We got like 2 ft of snow in Philly. Neighbors were all trying to dig thier cars out of the snow, as i was driving down the street most people stopped and were giving me dirty looks(city people). So I pulled into my driveway like this. They were pissed.lol
You must have felt cold not cool with no doors. Haha
lets see....that time when we where out on the trail and it was flooded (very muddy) and i was the middle vehicle and the trucks with their 3"+ lifts and M/T's barely made it through and me and my stock jeep with street tires did not get stuck, and the water was probably up to my headlights.
other times when my wj is covered in mud and people be looking...haha
I felt cool few years back coming home one night during a heavy storm. There was a section of roadway that was flooded about 2 feet deep. A couple had driven into it not being able to see it with the poor visibility. The engine was hydro locked. They asked me to get them out. The front of the car was underwater. Unable to hook up the tow strap, I pushed them out bumper to bumper. Once they were out, I hooked up the tow strap and towed them home which was nearby. I drove back past the flooded area and there was another vehicle that hit the exact spot and had also hydro locked. At that point another motorist and I called police to block off the roadway and helped to divert traffic to prevent more people from hydro locking or crashing into the other stranded vehicles.
I refused any compensation from the couple I towed out, but I got 40 bucks shoved in my pocket anyway
As someone else already said - every time I drive it. I've had 4X4 somethings most of my life. No one ever gave me a second glance when I drove a truck through deep snow or water. I recently bought a 1990 wrangler, that is kind of a beater, but it sits tall and looks great from 10 feet away (looks great to me even close up, in spite of the things wrong with it...but that's probably the new parent thing).
We had a really nice day a week or so ago and I was out cruising around. I was stopped at a stoplight and a couple of families were crossing the street. Two of the little girls in the group (probably 8 years old or so) looked at my jeep and both of them gave me the thumbs up sign. It's the little things that make an old married man like me happy these days.
When it snowed pretty bad down here last winter, I was approaching a bridge on a 4-lane road and only one lane on each side was cleared, meaning traffic was heavy and slow in the clear lane. I crossed through the snow and ice side, then looked back and some goober in an Explorer had tried to follow me and spun out
The best for me, we just finished eating and were fixing to get in the Jeep and I saw a little boy, maybe 7 or 8, was staring at the Jeep and told his dad "look daddy at how awesome and big that Jeep, you should get one like that". I started laughing as they started getting into their H2

Pulling into a parking lot once, a young kid was walking with his dad, and. I heard him say "monster truck" as he was looking at my Jeep.
And one time we had a really windy snowstorm, so there were huge drifts everywhere. Me and some buddies were driving around, everytime we saw someone stuck we would get out and push them out, and then plow through the deepest spot in the drift where they were just stuck

It was a warm summer day when I was driving slowly through a parking lot looking for a parking space... no doors, no top, big lift, big tires... Beach Boys singing Little Deuce Coupe just loud enough. Guy about my age sitting in his minivan looked at my Jeep, me driving it, and back at the Jeep, while grinning and shaking his head. Jeep envy, right there.
Crossing an intersection last summer, a little kid and his mom were in an older Suzuki Samuri just staring at me as I went across. Gave them the "Jeep Wave" and it looked like that kid's smile was wrapped clear behind his ears as he was waving back. Mom was pretty happy too ;-). You could just see how thrilled they were that a "real jeep" had waved at them.
With a great Jeep comes an empty wallet.
I felt pretty cool when I pulled a Mac Truck and trailer out of a granite quarry at midnight during a blizzard with my YJ. I did it while naked with one tow strap and visibility was low. I was alone. My Jeep shuttered and shook, but she kept going until the Mac truck crested the ridge of the quarry and suddenly the tow strap snapped sending the truck and trailer plunging back into the quarry. Just then A band of angels appeared and caught the truck just before it hit the bottom; and they brought it up and gently rested it on the frozen and frost bitten ground near my Jeep. The sky lit up with fireworks and the angels sang. And I hollered at the top of my lungs out of joy as my chest hair blew in the wind. After giving each angel a high five, (the next more epic than the last) I opened the doors to the trailer, my muscles flexing and twitching as the frozen bolt and hinges gave way. I broke the door off the trailer, and 100 needy Guatemalan children rushed out of the back. I directed them to my jeep where there was enough clothes to keep all of the children warm. As soon as I was satisfied that each child was warm enough, I reached into the glove box and pulled out enough food to fill them all with 3000 pounds of food left over.
Yah. I felt pretty cool...
Everyone IS out to get you, if you just believe in yourself and try hard enough!
Just last weekend a couple friends and I were driving in some big bark piles and when my friend got stuck in his land rover up to the axles i just hooks up a tow strap and pulled him half way out until my bumper got bent (stock Bumper).
When we were wheeling, an my friend has a Z71 on 35's gets stuck so I bog the worst part of the hole, get around him an watch him hook up the tow rope while I pull him through mud that he was stuck in.
I drive a ZJ on 4.5 RC with 33's
It's a jeep thing
