It means I don't have to drive my Mustang or motorcycle in the snow.

It means another supply of unending projects I'm gonna spend money and time on that I don't really have, but I wouldn't want it any other way.

Last summer while beach cruising in my ( women and children cover your ears ) Ford Escape, I came upon a forty foot high dune from it's shallow angle land side. The top was flat for 25 yards or so and as I approached the far side, seeing nothing but sky, I pulled off the track and stopped to scout ahead. Reaching the edge I looked down at a slope which, by my estimation, started out at about 45 degrees and achieved almost 60 degrees as it reached the top. At this time a couple in a CJ7 appeared coming down the beach. The jeep was dressed in nothing more than graceful age and a set of 33x10.50x15s. They turned at the bottom and with the classic chug of an AMC six effortlessly surmounted the forbidding slope. They passed me with a friendly wave and went on inland.

( Yes, now I'm sniffing after every CJ7 in range like a drunk high school football player at a cheerleader's slumber party. ) It's entirely possible the little Ford would have got me back up that dune, and that the only real obstacle was my lack of confidence in it's computer controlled semi-off road ability. But that's my point, a Jeep doesn't just take you places other cars won't go, it makes you want to go there.

It has a plow on it. It means I don't have to shovel my driveway.

What does your Jeep mean to you?

It means it's my one remaining hobby that gets my worn out old arse to the high sierra lake to go fishing with out having to walk. It also gets me to the Rubicon and back... most of the time...

Mine means the world to me. Simply because it defines me. My friends with their overly jacked up Chevy's and Fords all call me Comanche as a nickname and when I drive down the street everyone knows that its me, simply because they know my Jeep. It also means hard work and dedication because I haven't given up on it and never will. Its proven to many people that with a good forum like here and Comancheclub and some common sense, you don't have to take a vehicle to mechanic or spend big bucks on a brand new truck to have a nice vehicle. Just takes some time and love.

I graduated from high school in 1974 and spent the subsequent years buying $100 cars that I had to work on, usually shortly after I brought them home, because that's all I could afford. My friends had nicer vehicles and I was envious. I didn't covet a Jeep back then, but my 77 CJ-7 takes me back to when I used to work on my car more than I wanted because I had to. Now, I choose to, and enjoy the knowledge that I acquired from back then. I can fix things on my Jeep that I'd be afraid to touch on our new Buick. Independance, frugality, youthfulness, freedom and the wind in my hair. What's not to love? Oh, yah, it's paid for.
