After hurricane Ike, going out driving and not stopping for a flooded street, like the guy in the Ford truck, water splashing up over the hood, wife yelling "it's coming in", me replying "lift your feet", wife yelling "it's gonna stall" me replying'" it's made for this stuff". What a hoot. I had a blast. She had wet feet.
you're in a stock ZJ filled with friends out in some fields then suddenly realize you're doing 60 towards a small (~5-8ft drop) cliff and can only shout "This is going to hurt but there is no other option at the moment!" and floor it. The screaming and weightlessness and one idiot passenger in the back thinking they're too good for a seatbelt ending up in the back along with various cellphones and stuff was priceless. Somehow zero damage to the Jeep. That's where we called it a day though.
Meant to post that in embarrassing wheeling stories but I suppose it fits in here. Lol oops.
Picture this..... Middle of winter.... 3 vehicles, 2 won't start. The remaining 1 is a CJ-7 that has only half doors and no top, rigged for summer driving... You need to get to the store for some supplies.... You look at the girlfriend, shrug your shoulders, tell her to bundle up real good... Next thing you feel is the palm of her hand stinging the side of your face....She has tears running down her face.....She manages to blurt out, you love that Jeep more than me....Only a woman would figure out how to make it about herself in the middle of winter, when you need supplies, and the only vehicle that would start is a summer rigged CJ-7....I reply, well honey, at this point yes I do love that Jeep more than you. It has always started when I needed it, it has always gotten me out of more jams than I care to count on both hands and feet, and it has never slapped me because it felt I loved you more than it...Awkward moment about to hit....Girlfriend replies, well, do you love the Jeep more than me.....Silence...
That awkward moment when a friend of a friend says "your jeeps a piece of crap dude" and all of a sudden you have a murder trial to sort out.........
I find that usually its people who dont have cars who say those things...One time i had a friend laugh and say "you wish you could afford a truck and thats why you called your jeep the truck." i then informed him that i actually could have bought a nicer truck than most high schoolers for the same price as my jeep...

that awkward moment when your cousin is in the back seat on a narrow trail and forgets your in a 2wd, then complains about the speed you are going to make it out of the trails, the height the back end is bouncing and the speed of the pine needles slapping his face.
