Jeeps have drivers?

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/shocked.gif[/img] I was noticing on the thread that began with "Gun Cleaning" that a remark was made which needlessly impugned a Jeep owner's status as a genuine member of the non-yuppie off-road Jeep community. I KNOW,....it's tough to NOT want to run somebody down when you think they are being a smart guy, or like I do sometimes when I think I smell a (shudder) K-l-i-n-t-o-n-o-i-d L-i-b-e-r-a-l. Running someone down, however, on the basis of his equipment, is a risky venture because you can't always know the facts. Jeepchick and I ALMOST bought her a new YJ in '96, and had we done so, by now it would have been a WORTHY JEEP, with a 242 case and just the right mods. We would have felt VERY hurt if someone had mistakenly assumed we were yuppies. After all, anyone can forsake the Klintunoid democrap party on a moments notice and vote for freedom and morality in November. It's a lot harder to swap your Jeep for something different, especially if it's paid for.[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]

Re: Jeeps have drivers?

Jeez Dave, I've been driving an 88 Cherokee for a few years now and no one has mis-took me for a yuppie either. Can't be from the lack of paint, the permanantly mud encrusted aluminum wheels, the rear end forever loaded with axles, trannies, sacks of grain,hunting and fishing gear, ect...must be the NRA sticker in the window! :-)

A Yj isn't a jeep until its been modified... Personally I call 'em Chryslers... Almost got into a fight one time by calling 'em that.. oh well...

Re: Jeeps have drivers?

NO, you typed that just a lil bit wrong, A JEEP isn't a jeep, until it's been modified.
Doesn't matter if it's a CJ,YJ, TJ, XJ, ZJ, or even a flat fender.
Ok, maybe not the flat fender, but everyone else.
And on top of that, you have to get it dirty too, otherwise, it's a Car, w/ horrible aerodynamics

to hell with it, lets go wheelin'

Re: Jeeps have drivers?

I dont know exactly why everyone bashes YJs so much. Have you ever seen a YJ with no sway bars and trac bars articulate? Mine maxes out the shocks and brakelines, and I haven't even loosened the spring clamps! I've got some 4" extended brake lines to put on, then I'll pull off the shocks and loosen the clamps and show you a YJ with a stock suspension twisting it up!

Re: Jeeps have drivers?

I am the proud owner of a YJ. It looks like it fell out of the ugly tree and hit every branch on the way down. The front end is trashed, no radio, no top, and to top it all off...its a beatufiul shade of camoulfage! Its survived a two year backyard storage, a rearend collision with a semi, an engine fire and last but not least, me driving it! If anyone tries to tell me the YJ is a soft jeep I usually just rear-end 'em. It won't hurt me, my hood already looks like its been stored on a driving range. (if anyone takes this as a serious flame, relax, they're all jeeps )

MudFlap 87 YJ POS!!
