Re: Jeep attraction

Welcome to the brotherhood. LOL.

Yep happens all the time to me, but occasionally someone with a FJ Cruiser messes it up.

Re: Jeep attraction

except for Wrangler owners, they think the GC isn't a real Jeep but a mall crawler

Ever play leap frog? You just don't notice when the other guy passes you.

He posted the exact same thing on another forum.

I meant "pass" as in coming toward me in the oncoming lane.

Re: Jeep attraction

It is popular for wranglers to do that. I used to have a CJ and now have a JK Unlimited and the wife drives a 2011 GC. I always park next to other Jeeps when I find them. Yeah and some CJ - Wrangler owners are self appointed Jeep purists and don't like the SUV models. Its a cool brand image thing

At work for a few and look out the window to find this lol. Its a proven fact that jeep owners go to other jeeps.

Spreading love would be to always park with spaces between you and the next Jeep.

I see the clustering too. Dunno if it is based on a theory Jeep owners would never scratch the door of other Jeeps [false], or some obscure herding instinct.

I also every now and then see Jeeps parked on top of or in the middle of the biggest snow piles in the lot...

Its a Jeep thing.....

Yeah, I always get nervous when I see a bunch of Wranglers parked together and then I go into the pack wth my 20s on. I feel like they when they get back to their Jeeps they'll be like "look at this guy he thinks he has a Jeep with his 20" mall crawlers. I'll feel better when I get my 18" ATs on.

Well, it is.

Re: Jeep attraction

I was at a Marriott the other day and there were four JGSs in a row, including mine at that point.

A couple of random Jeep Wrangler owners saw us and stopped. Pretty cool.
