I do as much work as I'm able. I also pay someone to do what I can't do. I don't think that means I'm not a "Jeeper". I would do the sleeve and gusset upgrade on my front D44 but I don't feel my welding skills are quite up to that task yet.

Yes I do all my own maintenance and some custom fab work but I have my limits.

I've also come to a point in my life that I can afford to pay someone to do it if I want. Now I love tools and getting my hands dirty. I'm a maker. But not everyone is and on the flipside, not everyone is in the position to simply pay someone to do it. So it goes both ways.

Chrysler has gotten paid so they could care less what people do with the product at that point. "Jeeper" is a term that applies to a select group. Out of all the Jeeps sold, I would hazard a guess that that term applies to about 5 percent over all. Even less when you're talking Jeep owners on an online Jeep forum.

Hey at least they're in a Jeep.

Ive been working on cars for nearly 20 years. my father taught me when i was young. So ive never taken anything to the shop inless it was under warranty(why pay for it when someone else can right) I love my ZJ and i love when people drive around and tell me how it needs all this work. Only thing in it is a driver seat and the rest is gutted. I wish some peoples parents taught them how to change their own oil because most of todays generation is useless they drive them till they die and whine because it isnt working. Im glad theirs others who feel that working on your own rigs is the way to do it
