Are there any Black (African-American's... not Jeep Color) owner's here?

I just ordered my JK in Blue... (because I don't see that color around as much)... and when I told a few people about it... they referred to it as a good ol' boy's car... or california surfer type car...

I noticed while I drive around that I don't see many Black owners.. (not black as in car color.... but by now I think you've gotten that). And wondered if it was different from state to state. I live in Grayson, Georgia.... and have yet to see another Black Wrangler owner...

Just curious for curious sake.

Interesting question. As a matter of fact I have seen two here in Carson City Nevada. Frankly it doesn't matter the color even if your green as long as your in a ride you like and having a good time. Heck, I'll wheel with just about anyone, any color as that doesn't dictate, action and attitude does.

As a side note there may be more color and less redneck in the dub crowd as the new 4 doors seem to be popular with them.

Now that (to me) would be an oddity a white, redneck guy driving a Jeep with 40" dubs.

Funny image.

As a black jeeper myself... I've tried waving at every jeep that goes bye... I used to think I was being snubbed till I've read many thread on how everyone feels snubbed... (Chip on shoulder removed).

I haven't gone into downtown atlanta in some time... maybe that would make a difference....

I'll also ride with anyone... ... well anyone that doesn't mind a rookie.

As a Canadian, I really couldn't care any less what color your skin is that you are born with. Anyone with the sense to buy and modify a Jeep for offroading is cool in my books!

BTW: This isn't really JK-technical - so its bein' moved!

For what its worth. My neighbor ,three doors down is black. He has a nice YJ. He doesnt wheel it much but it is set up for wheeling if he wanted. Are Jeeps supposed to be a white guy thing or something? Because I can "Bust that Myth" in my neighborhood alone. Yes I am watching MYTHBUSTERS

I've wheeled with a guy who has a LJ on 35's. He's black and wheels.

Guess he's rare?

Who gives a flying **** if there are other black wrangler owners, or other white wrangler owners or other green wrangler owners...

The answer to your question is yes other people own wranglers...

Why should it matter if I'm black and own a wrangler?

I wouldnt notice if they were anyway. Besides, where I live if you dont drive a hummer or escalade or some soccer mom SUV, you are a redneck. Any mud would constitute redneckism too.

Bring that JK out to Beasley Knob on the 21st. we are trying to get a run going in the WHeelin Neighborhood USA east

I really want to see one live in action.

Unless of course IDENCUSTOM means anything to do with Nextel. We Cingular folks dont play well with PTT guys

I would 100% agree with you. All the jeepers I've met are very down to earth, but the marority are almost all white. Its easier to say "ahhh who cares" when your in the majority.
