    How often does this happen to you? Happens to me at least twice a day. I need to find a windshield banner that says "NOT A JEEP".

    Don't sweat it. They're probably just trying to be friendly so you'll return the favor when they're broken down and/or stuck on the trail.

    I try to make it a habit to point and smile at their teeny tiny axles. They think I'm expressing interest in, or appreciation for, their rig - and I get a bit of enjoyment out of it as well. Everybody wins :D

    It's a Jeep thing. You wouldn't understand !

    I wave at old jeeps(or they wave at me 1st), like WWII resto's, flat fenders, high hood, ect, I pretty much stop at CJ5's.

    Man you guys need to seek help to figure out why you have this hatred of Jeeps. Why? ANY 4x4 is a good 4x4 for our industry. This industry is dieing whether you like to believe it or not. Moab, the Rubicon will be gone in our life times. There is simply to much political correct pressure on state legislatures to close these areas. We need all the help and support we can get. I dont get hating something or someone that hasnt done anything to you in the first place.

    Nope. I can't go for the any 4x4 rational. Jeeps are one thing. H2s are something else all together. They create more hatred of SUVs than they can possibly be worth.

    Well that's NOT a real 4x4.. Bummer H2's are expensive suburbans. When do you ever see a suburban on the trail? Im talking TJ, XJ, WJ's that kind of thing.

    That will just make it worse. They will see JEEP and not read the NOT A part. Mostly I get waves from guys with total pavement pounder, stock wranglers. Guys with the built up jeeps know what a cruiser is. And they just wish they were as cool as us.

    I usually wave back, and will occasionally wave at nicely set up jeeps. Last night as I was changing a condensor (damn points) in a parking lot and a guy from a local jeep club in a lifted cherokee on swampers asked me if I was all set then invited me to go on a run with them sometime. They aren't all bad, actually most of them probably aren't.
