To me, they have it ass backwards...
(or is that back-asswards? )

Barbie had a big lift, giant tires that stuck out of the fender wells, a light bar and glue on fender flairs...
AND,
Everything was made out of plastic!

I have a 'Real' Jeep...
It goes off road. It gets 'Wet'. It keeps up with every one of the 'Big' jeeps on the trail, only I do it for a lot less money...
And generally have a lot more fun because if I bang this one up, I haven't lost my lifes savings...

It doesn't have a big lift, big tires, big roll cage, big light bar.

It serves me, I don't serve it.
Rattle can paint, lots of home made parts,
AND,
It waits patiently for me to go out and drive it...

------------

Besides, the only place I've seen the flashy paint, huge lifts, giant tires and dozens of lights is in the mall parking lot,....
*Maybe* (and that's a BIG maybe!) they go splash through a mud hole once in a while out behind Wally-World...
But I've never seen them actually 'Off Road'...

When I see them out with us, hanging on to some ridge top by their toenails with a big stupid grin on their faces,
(Instead of realizing there entire lifes work and savings is about 3 inches from rolling down a hill!)
THEN I pay attention to what they have to say!

When they can keep up, they are 'Equals' and I listen to them...
