Heh, I never noticed that before!

I guess it's just because Jeep is so awesome that it pulls all their business towards Jeep. However, since we're all determined to 1) Keep our Jeeps running as long as physically possible so we can 2) Sink as many cool and stupidly expensive parts into them as possible.
