O/T - It really pisses me off...

I know there are worse things in the world to complain about, but I went to visit an old buddy today. He was checking out my Jeep, and then happened to go, "Oh, what happened there? Hit a tree on a trail?" He was referring to the nice sized dent on my passenger side rocker panel. After closer examination, it turns out it wasn't a tree at all, but somebody's nice little white car. The least they could of done was let me know they f-ing hit me. I just thought I would rant a little bit about this. This isn't the first time this has happened. It's the inconsiderate ass' of the world that ruin it for the rest of us. Anyway, that's my rant, it'd be worse, but then LEVE would harp on me...J/K [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img] And might I add, I would love to catch someone hitting my Jeep and attempting to drive off. They'd had a 35x1250x15 on their hood faster than they could say BFG.

oh but tires just don't do enough damage, plant that bumper into a window or two to get your point across! it does suck when people don't have the balls to fess up to minor stuff like that. So it goes tho, what do you do???

Re: O/T - It really pisses me off...

That's odd Jammy. The folks around go out of their way to *NOT* park or otherwise come close to my trash [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

Now, those DA yuppies that cut me off trying to "get in front" of me are another thing! I plan to stencil "*YOUR* my Crumple Zone" on both bumpers very soon. They won't be able to say they weren't warned! [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img]

Re: O/T - It really pisses me off...

I had a truck primed and ready for paint once and came out of a supermarket to find a little kid bouncing a shopping cart off of with his dad watching. I tell the guy to keep his kid away from my truck and he shrugs it off so I bounce the cart of his truck. He didn't dig it.

Re: O/T - It really pisses me off...

1/8" rear corner gaurs, 3/16 box tube bumpers, 1/4" rocker gaurds, 33/12.50s, 3/16" wall tube fenders..

When I come out of the supermarket and see some white paint skuffed onto my rocker gaurds I just laugh...

If anything else, my jeep is just about invincible in a super market parking lot..


Not only that... but with the way my rollcage is setup, if I were to get "T" boned in an intersection, there'd be over 3/4 of an inch of steel between me and the other car...

Re: O/T - It really pisses me off...

well after i read jammys post these where my thoughts....

if i hit jammys jeep, and saw how big it was.. would i want to say " sorry" in fear of being killed by the driver..

how did another vehicle hit the side of your jeep, it must have been a van, cars are too short....

u need some rocker protection....

they probably did more damage too there vehicle than yours...

but in all seriouslyness that does suck thats happened to me.. and i did have the feeling of finding them and giving them there just deserve.... hahah

Re: O/T - It really pisses me off...

I'm there with ya. My driver seems to get more abuse than the CJ. The passenger side has so many dinks its beginning to look like some wierd form of braille writing. I can't even figure out where they keep coming from.

I was really POed when I had just had it painted and the next week I found a shopping cart bashed into the side taking the paint down to the metal and leaving a quarter size indention.

I've been saying for years that people just don't want to be ARA (Accountable or Responsible for their Actions).

Re: O/T - It really pisses me off...

I had a brand new truck a couple years ago and watched an imbicile open the door to his rusty, dented, useless piece of junk Monte Carlo and slam it into the side of my truck. I asked him for his insurance company policy number and he acted like there was nothing wrong with what he did and walked into the store. He was awfly surprised when he came out to a Police Officer waiting. The moron actually did $540.00 damage to my truck with a door. He didn't have insurance and I am still waiting for the money, but the look on his face was almost worth it.....

Re: O/T - It really pisses me off...

I just got my Cherokee back from the body shop with a new tailgate & My home made Bumper (2- 2 1/2 X5 in tubes welded togeather) That was painted to look like the Cherokee & some punk kid came around a corner to fast & didnt stop his escort in time ,,, I was waitng on traffic coming across a single lane bridge & he hit us doing 25 or 30 & the bumper saved the new tailgate from any damage & it ate the frontend off that escort ,,, Plus the cop gave him a test & he was [img]images/graemlins/AR15firing.gif[/img] DWI ... Didnt scratch the bumper .. [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
