Jeep people; who aren\'t

Had a conversation at work the other day that dumbfounded me. This dude at work has a nice TJ. Clean as Martha Stewarts cell. We start BSing about who will ship parts to Europe and he says he's spent somewhere in the neighborhood of $8k from Quadratec and had no problems. That's all well and good (they aren't a "bad" company) I decide to inquire about what he's done to his rig. He spits out alot of top shelf upgrades and the first thing I think is he bought a nice Jeep. As we talk I realize that he actually put a good amount of planning and thought into a rig that would KICK A$$ to wheel. So then I ask where he goes wheeling at around here (off roading is illegal in Germany). He says to me "I don't. I don't want to F__ up my Jeep".
I was almost offended. I told him I'd take him to a quarry I know of with some light stuff but he declined. Told me he can get the front wheels off the ground from a stop sign though. Some peoples kids.....

Re: Jeep people; who aren\'t

Whatever blows his hair back.....

at least it wasnt a ricer.

Take him in your rig, through some light stuff, he'll see that it really isnt THAT bad on the vehicle as long as you stay sensible, and dont try to do crazy things, and if its built, then it can probably take a lot.

Re: Jeep people; who aren\'t

Guess it's a show TJ.

People invest in things that have no value to others. To them are those other people simply breaking good stuff?

Fun is what you make it.

Randy--You send me a centerforce clutch and I'll export some of the finest beer Germany/Europe has to offer right to your door step. I recomend Heineken NON-export. Only available in Holland but oh so worth it!

Re: Jeep people; who aren\'t

I agree with the "take him wheeling in your jeep" comment. Get his feet wet, and let hiim get the itch. Either he will want to do it own his own or it wasn't meant to be.

Different people share their "jeep love" in different ways.

And yup......... at least it ain't no little lowered ricer. You gotta at least give him that.

Re: Jeep people; who aren\'t

Yup, take him wheeling. It still suprises me how much wheeling is addictive. I have on more than one occasion been wheeling with a couple of first timers (they were just riding a-long, these are non truck owners) And off the top of my head I can think of at least 3 people who went off and got a Jeep. At the end of the summer, I went out with a kid in a stock TJ... Totally bone stock. (I was way impressed) Anyway the kid had such a good time he decided to build his jeep. Within 3 months his jeep is build 5in total lift 33" MTR's and a few dents and scratches. He couldn't be happier about it, and I would wheel with him any day. It is fun to see someone go from total newbe..... to them pulling you out of the mud.
Take this guy out with you in your Jeep. If there is even just a little bit of jeep owner down deep in him. He will be with you on your next trail ride.

Re: Jeep people; who aren\'t

1. Keep 'em out! [img]images/graemlins/thud.gif[/img]
2. There's more room for you on the trails,
3. Later, there's more pristine parts!
4. It's a win-win situation!
