What gets me is there are some people out there who are worried about scratching up their Jeep, even if they're out trail riding. :shock: Took a guy with a '09 stock JK like that on a trail ride. He constantly kept asking, "I won't scratch my Jeep, will I?" I justed wanted to take my key and put a nice scratch down the side of it and say, "Happy now?" It's a Jeep, c'mon!



maybe he just got it and wants it to look nice or he just likes taking care of his things


the thing is, he KNEW there would be obstacles that might scratch his Jeep. this happen like 2yrs ago... it was a fun drive though!
:JEEPIN:

For one i might let it slide is your still paying on it or if its your grandmas :)
For two, if you buy a jeep or lets say 4x4 and lift it to drive on the road, well thats sad and stop trying to make up for something else :ROTFL:

Plus have anyone ever heard of a paint job, touch up paint, waxes, etc..... :ROTFL:

Yes it was in General, Basically if you want any vehicle to be perfect, dont drive it (even on the road) and put it in a bubble. :mrgreen:

Here's my philosophy: I have a nice vehicle (04 Renegade) and a daily (Ranger). The Renegade gets driven approximately 2 times per week to keep the mileage down. The Ranger gets driven through trees and slings rocks . :)

Too nice to be wheeled? In some aspects of my mind yes.

I will take it mudding, through construction sites :shock:, and hit puddles all day long. But I'll be danged if you see it parked within 5 spaces of another vehicle in a parking lot. I have never taking it trail riding...yet. But if there were a 3 foot gap between tree branches, heck no. I don't drive it to school because 1. It's 36 miles round trip and 2. I park at a university parking garage.

I know it's not a $20,000 rig but It's my pride & joy. I put it to use, but don't abuse it. :2cents:

It's like this...you buy a $100 pair of shoes. Walk on the concrete, asphalt, and grass, but don't jump in the mud puddles.

If I spend $100 on dress shoes, I won't jump in any mud puddles while wearing them... however if I spend $100 on hunting boots, I will not shy away from a trail that has mud on it. My Jeep is made to hit the trails and look good doing it. It'll take a couple days before I wash my weekend's mud off. I'll wear that mud to work with the pride of a weekend spend having fun!

A jeep that doesn't get muddy from time to time is like a new toy that is never taken out of the box. It may hold a higher market resale value but have zero value in treasured memories.

This may be an old thread, but I just found it so here's my say.
I put no, Jeeps are meant to be wheeled, that being said I can understand if its brand new and you want to keep it somewhat pretty for awhile, but after a certain number of years it is expected to have some damage.
I say that, but every time I get back, I rush to try to wax out the pinstripes before my wife see them at their worst :oops: . She doesn't exactly agree with me on my Jeep philosophy. It is less than a year old. So I can see why people with new jeeps are a little nervous. They may just fear their wife.LOL.
