A little dirt doesn't hurt.



Right now, some of you are having virtual heart attacks looking at that pic. But, some of us really don't go the "I'll never allow my Jeep to get dirty" route.


/yes, have to buy a hitch rack for the bike

Re: A little dirt doesn't hurt.

Nothing wrong with getting the Jeep dirty.

But you should take better care of that bike!

Re: A little dirt doesn't hurt.

I don't mind getting the outside dirty, but the inside not so much. I'd get some wet Okole's or something for that poor interior.
Nice doggy

Re: A little dirt doesn't hurt.

I've had 20 bags of topsoil, and (3) 12' treated 4x4s in mine. I hauled lots (shingle, roofing flashing, etc) when building the shed last summer. I also have the Mopar slush mat. My interior still looks new when clean. Luckily, I recently traded my car for a Ram -- to do the dirty stuff.

That's what it's made for. No point in having a vehicle that limits your fun because it may get a bit dirty.

what has his putting his bike in the back got to do with it being sold as a used vehicle? if its damaged and scratched its going to be able to be seen by the next potential buyer and they can make the choice to purchase it or not. the damage is cosmetic and has nothing to do with the vehicles performance or maintenance. alot of people that "use" their vehicles also are the same people that are super anal on the maintenance because they have to count on that vehicle. youre statement is absurd

Re: A little dirt doesn't hurt.

Oh C'mon folks does everthing have to turn into an argument. One person doesn't agree with the other, or would do something different well ok we get it. Are we freaking adults on here try to act like it.

It's all good.

There are a few minor scratches on the plastic areas on the side. But! Beneath the protectors I have in the back, the fabric is fine. When I get it detailed, it looks amazing.

BTW... whoever does buy my Jeep will be happy. Never been in an accident, extended zero deductible Chrysler warranty and all the routine maintenance records are online. (all service done through the dealer)

One thing for sure, this thing ain't no mall cruiser. Hopefully it will be purchased by somebody who loves taking it as many places as I have.

Re: A little dirt doesn't hurt.

I might suggest the Mopar cargo mat instead of the curtain shade you are currently using!

Re: A little dirt doesn't hurt.

I have no issue with the getting dirty part , but a hitch-mounted bike rack is just soooo much easier to deal with, on and off!
