Re: Jeep People are top notch
Have to share a eye-opening story:
Out wheeling with a couple of buddies in my jeep. One of them, Jim, owns a couple of Toyota Landcruisers (Fj??) and we are always ribbing each other about my Jeep and his Fj.
So, Jim sees a trail, and from the back seat of my Jeep, Jim says "go over there, your Jeep 'might' be able to make it", I took the trail, dropped in a rut and snapped the driveshaft [img]images/graemlins/cussing.gif[/img].. He had fun with that [img]images/graemlins/blush.gif[/img]. I unlocked the rear hubs and rolled it back down the hill (He started to drool when he saw what Warn full-floaters can do). Jim stared freaking out saying what can we do now., untill he saw me pull out my tool box [img]images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]
So far in the distance, we see a Jeep, a nice trail rig all set up coming our way. Jim walks away, saying "I don't want to associated with you when they drive by and laugh at you" I said, "I don't know about Fj owners, but the Jeep will stop, ask what I broke, see if they have anything with them to replace/fix/fab something, and if they can't help, they will stay and chat and share their beer if they have some.

"In your dreams, that doesn't look like Mother Theresa pulling up" - Jim said
Needless to say, the Jeep stopped, the passanger was upset becouse he kept an extra driveshaft in HIS jeep, they offered U-Joints, bolts etc, though to no avail. So they sat with us as I removed the driveshaft and shared thier Wild Turkey with my 2 buddies [img]images/graemlins/laugh.gif[/img].
Later over the campfire I heard Jim say : "How much did Scott pay for his jeep? Do you remember where he got it..."
And yes, I would stop for a Fj. [img]images/graemlins/deal.gif[/img]
