I haven't been on here in over 2 years since I sold the ZJ. This has to be the best opinion I have ever read. Amazing. Read it 10 times and it keeps getting better.
Better one.Hey Everyone, I'm concerned my girlfriend is spending too much money on fabrics, buttons, etc trying to design the perfect dress. Since she is draining her bank account on these items, does anyone know of a supplier that sells cheaper fabrics or prints? If not, do you think she should start a new project and abandon this one for financial reasons? Thanks everyone for the help!
You brought the forum a ton of publicity, and this thread is something for all to see (at least the first post). Look around on the forum for the Commander section. The tech support on this website has saved me ALOT of money.All here a JF, firstly I apologize for the bandwidth consumption. I originally saw the link to this thread on Facebook. It cracked me up because, ladies, like it or not that is what MOST men would find ultimate nirvana. Not that we are demanding it of you or even remotely asking it. Its not reality. It was a joke and a funny post. Lighten up and get off your high horse.
I submitted it to Reddit without thinking it would get this popular. None of my submissions ever do. I was wrong. I should have taken a screen shot and posted that instead of a direct link. Sorry about that. Hopefully the forum is more stable as this type stuff usually dies down quickly.
This seems like a cool forum and I wanted to apologize as I feel I have disrupted your pretty awesome community.
Also, ironically enough, I own a Jeep Commander. Anyone have a used OEM Jeep overhead DVD console?
Again, hopefully your server does not lag anymore and next time I find a awesome post on JF, I will submit a screenshot.
My wife will gripe about me working on my Jeep or WS6 but when she need something done to her car she is all for me working on it to save some money. When she gripes about it taking longer than she wants to wait I tell her to get her arse out here and help me or shut the hell up. That usually ends the griping sessions.Let the guy spend HIS money how HE pleases. As a girlfriend, you really have no say nor do any of us. He wanted the jeep, had means to get it..got it. Probably had fun with it, broke it. It's a labor of love. Some of us enjoy wreching around on stuff. Why pay top dollar to get something fixed, when you can go buy the parts, invest a little time, and learn something in the process of the repair. I'm sure if you had a car that broke, then brought it to the repair shop and looked at the tab you'd love to have bf that could fix said car for pennies in comparison. He's gaining knowledge and pride from that "overpriced" ****can. Like stated above, why not just help him do what he wants to do. I bet he'd be overjoyed to have his gf passing him tools, or just sitting there talking to him while he works. Why be that irritating girlfriend sitting in the shop miserable when you could get your hands the slightest bit dirty and make the guy smile. No matter what, a girl who wants a serious shot with a guy never intentionally hurts his pride. Posting on a Jeep forum about his what you consider "bad" decisions isn't being helpful or supportive..and you're not going to get the answer YOU want
In terms of part-outs..They're a gamble, you may have someone come buy the whole jeep at once..But thats usually not the case. He most likely won't make back what he put into it. In a decent time frame atleast.
I completly agree. IMO th original response was irected to the everyday house wife.. My wife asks me all day long, " can I help you work on the jeep." But after 10 minutes she is saing," I'm bored, I'm going inside." She just isn't into cars/trucks. It's not her thing. This post wa directed to the eveyday house wife who doesn't like to get dirty. My advice to the BF of the OP. Dump her, because now we all will know what kinda gf you have at your place and none of us will want to come over to help you.. LOL JKThey are still keeping this in the Tech thread? Man.
You guys, you're post about women in this thread are comical, but I am pretty sure that it doesn't describe 99% of women on JF. We don't care how much money you put into your Jeep because we are doing the same thing. We roll up our sleeves, stay hard at work, and still manage to take care of the house. JF men, when you make a post, please keep the women of JF in mind. While I found the original posting funny, some of the comments afterwards are a bit crude.
