Funny JK owners....

Me n the wife had a good laugh on our way to church this morning. We have a local orv park and we get caravans come in every so often, which is awesome. But this morning the caravan we get to see is about 5-6 jk's all of then are completely stock exept for one that was very well built. I am pretty sure a few had street tires. Its just funny to see, because they all prob got a good laugh out of the rest of the orv park.

Id rather see a bone stock JK in the dirt somewhere offroad, than ANOTHER brand new rubi, built to the HILT, that doesnt have a scratch and will never, ever, see trails...

I had a guy come running up to me one day this summer in a parking lot, I had the doors and top off and he wanted to know where I got "those awesome mirror mounts" that mount on the windshield hinge... He had a JK...

Jeepican, People like you make the offroading world suck sometimes. Who cares if it was a stock JK? At least it is getting used. Why make fun of them?

I don't care if someone takes a AWD Kia to the trails. The fact that people use what they have is awesome in my book.

I gladly pick my JK over my CJ7 offroad any day of the week. Take a look at my sig, I have built and wheeled many Jeeps. My current JK Rubi wins hands down off road. No question about it. Sure I could dump more and more $$ into the CJ to make it more modern (and loose the coolness factor in my book) and it could keep up off road but I'd rather have the best of both worlds.

To each his own.

Good posts, John and Adam.

I don't care for the snobby CJ attitudes, either. The "I win" threads, like this one, almost embarrass me.

I have a CJ because it's part of my history that I don't want to forget. Some of my fondest memories have happened in a CJ. I like having a vehicle that I can actually work on myself, and I like bouncing around in a 30 year old ride because it makes me appreciate how far vehicle technology has come over the years. If I want to ride in comfort, I take my new Tundra pickup.

The same type of in-fighting happens in the hunting world. Archers badmouth muzzleloader hunters, muzzleloaders badmouth rifle hunters, and so on. Ultimately, this type of short-sighted behavior will ruin it for all hunters.

Unite and celebrate diversity.

Geeez.... i wasn't taking shots at JK's .... i actually like them. I just cringe at the fact that someone would take a brand new completely stock jk out on the trails. I could buy several cj's for that. I never said they were incapable or that nobody should own them. It's just that every weekend i look for the caravans lined up at the hotels and gas stations on the weekends. I typically see very nice rigs. From Suzukis, to Jeeps (all), and several other models. 95% of the time every rig i see at least has a winch or some larger tires. But every now and then i get to see a group with completely stock jeeps. And i just thought it was funny. Apparently i was wrong and refrain from making future comments about it. And its people like you guys who ruin the good ole fun that has been around since the beginning of time. I assume you never poke fun at your buddy who roots for the other team? Grow a sense of humor and lighten up..............it's your type of uptight attitudes that ruin good fun for everyone else.

I know someone who loves JK's and really likes to bad mouth my CJ. Always talking about how inferior the CJ is. I guess this goes both ways. Maybe he swings both ways, who knows?

Stay thirsty my friends

You mentioned in your first post that you were headed to church, yesterday. Perhaps these verses will help you:

Philippians 2:4 ESV "Let each of you look not only to his own interests, but also to the interests of others."

James 3:13-18 ESV "Who is wise and understanding among you? By his good conduct let him show his works in the meekness of wisdom. But if you have bitter jealousy and selfish ambition in your hearts, do not boast and be false to the truth. This is not the wisdom that comes down from above, but is earthly, unspiritual, demonic. For where jealousy and selfish ambition exist, there will be disorder and every vile practice. But the wisdom from above is first pure, then peaceable, gentle, open to reason, full of mercy and good fruits, impartial and sincere. ..."

Seriously..... keep that in PM or the politics and religion debates..... I was not vulgar or calling these people bad or anything of the nature. It was all in good fun. You and Adam turned it into an ordeal and debate.

Hey at least they were getting out on the trail (and thus supporting our hobby)-

But sometimes you just have to laugh. Last time out on the trail we passed a stuck bone stock FJ Cruiser, all shiny and blue. We stopped to ask if he needed help, he declined saying he had called for a tow rig and they were on the way. He was hardly stuck and only in about 8" or so of mud. We offered to yank him out but he was afraid of body dammage and said he would wait. We drove past him with ease and we joked together over the CB about how we bet he wished he had bought a Jeep. Find out later from the ORV park owner (who he had called for a tow, that the FJ owner had to pay for) that the FJ owner didn't know how to put his vehicle in 4WD, and when they pulled him out he promptly got stuck again so they looked into it, guy was in FWD (front wheel drive) and not 4WD!
Too funny- if you want to use your new vehicle off road, at least read the owners manual!

Cheers!

My point exactly..... i wasn't trying to discourage them from getting on the trails..... its just funny. It's like the guy showing up on his moped at a biker rally. You joke around with the new guy.... but turn around and help him when he's stuck. I know it could have been their first time and now they will probably be hooked and join in the disease. But its still funny and all in good fun. As the Joker said "Why so serious?"
