We all have some stories as to why we love our Jeep. There's endless build threads and questions about all the strange problems that come up, but I figured to hear about what these old Jeeps really do.
My old CJ-7 just keeps on going. I'm not exactly a kid with all daddy's money to build a crazy off road rig, but my old Q-trac is my daily driver and I have plenty of stories. Drives my friends crazy when my old heap of Jeep starts up dead cold at twenty below, or when they get stuck in the ditch in the snow on the icy days. Worst that happened to me, I tipped the old thing over, but I tipped it back up and drove home. The old starter jammed and ripped all its own teeth off, but I replaced it right there in the adult shop parking lot in a matter of about half an hour. They get stuck in the mud in the fairground parking lot, and I'm the one to tow them out, and they still ask why I drive a Jeep. The old engine just won't die, no matter how broke I am, and despite the faulty gas guage, there always seems to be just that last little bit of fumes to get me to the Tesoro.
