Well, last night I was watching 4x4TV or was it the Discovery Channel special on Extreme 4x4 machines... don't recall which, at anyrate. Sitting there watching and a they show a jeep climing up some rocks, I had my Little girl in my lap and as of latley she's been learning more and more new words, well, i pointed at the screen and said "Jeep".. she pointed at the screen, and said "jeep" and then looked at me, after that each time they showed a new one, she pointed at the screen and said "Jeep"
That was one of my son's first words also. He's 9 now and we all play the Jeep game. We get to call Jeeps and keep score, 5 points for a CJ/TJ/YJ, 2 points for Cherokees/Grands and 1 point for a Liberty. All others are bragging rights.
Definitly good memories.
Ditto on driving the wife nuts. Me and our daughter always holler when we see a CJ or older Jeep, REAL JEEP!, but newer than a CJ, FAKE JEEP!. Just some ribbing to ya'll that drive anything newer than a CJ, cause most any Jeep vehicles are great rides. 'Old' round lights are better than squares. Just kidding!
'82 CJ7, 258 CID, (MC2100 & HEI upgrades), T5, D300, Flowmaster muff., & 265/15's, (soon to be 33x12.50x15's on the ground)
First, your girl's going to make some Jeep guy very happy man someday.
Second, I had a dog when I was growing up. As with any dog, he loved going for rides in a car. When asked "Wanna go for a Jeep ride!!??" he'd jump around and wait by the garage door. He didn't do that for any other... If you said "Want to go for a car ride?" nope... had to be a Jeep.
He loved sitting in the back seat of our CJ sniffing the breeze as it passed by. After all, he didn't have to stretch to stick his head out the window, it was just on HUGE window all around him..
