I get asked by family and friends, who were expecting me to driving a Bronco by now, “Does the Jeep even have a removeable roof?”

🙄

Gotta give Ford one thing; they sure can’t build a vehicle right, but damn - they know how to market the hell out of it.

On El Camino Del Diablo for hours, haven’t seen another person all day, in the distance, a U.S. Border patrol agent in a truck headed towards me pulls to shoulder and lowers his window as I approach

Him: “Why’d you get a yellow one?”

I’d Rather Talk Jeep’s!
My own mother asked and said this a few days ago:
“why did you get such big tires? I don’t see any of the other Jeep’s with big tires like that. You aren’t going off-road with it, are you?”

🤦🏼🤣🤣

She did compliment me. Hey, what’s going on with your order?
If you mean my Wrangler, WTFK.

Original last day to drop was Monday, 9/06, Labor Day. Setup flight for Friday the 10th, then late last week they sent an email moving the date out another week.

I guess they like the sound of 13 weeks better.

Still hoping it drops Tuesday, but doubtful. Gonna cost me $200 to adjust the tickets. Gonna request reimbursement from FCA. Let's see how that plays out. 🤔🙄

Someone asked me why the power window controls were on the center dash console.

I told them it was so I could still roll the windows down even when the doors are off.

There were a good 30 seconds where they couldn't figure out if I was serious or not. 😆

Dumb questions don't bother me. It's either an excuse to ramble enthusiastically about my Jeep or an opening for me to let loose with a truly terrible joke. Either way, win!

Why would she even ask that?
Seems weird and random unless it was followed with a compliment about how great it looked.
They are forced to make small talk and engage the customers (more so if you become a regular). So they ask and talk about the most random things.

You can't really blame non-Wrangler owners for asking seemingly "dumb" questions...they don't own one, so it only makes sense. I don't own a Ferrari, so I'd probably ask equally stupid questions about that car too. What's far worse (and funnier), is when Wrangler owners ask dumb questions about vehicles they already own.

Case in point...I almost always drive my 2-door JL in safari mode, and I've had three other soft-top JL owners ask me what sort of "aftermarket top" I have. I always kindly and respectfully advise that they have the same tops and can configure them the same way, but it sure is fun to watch the dumbfounded surprise on their faces. No malice though...still glad to help them understand and enjoy their vehicles, but like really? After investing $40K-$60K in an awesome Jeep, isn't it important, necessary, and perhaps interesting to read the manual?!?!?

....only to have the barista ask me when I got to the window if my 4xe had a steering wheel cover on it.

How could she see the steering wheel way over in the carpark?

What? Read the manual? Only as a last resort after f....ing around, screwing things up,trying stupid stuff and scratching my head because I can’t figure it out!

I like for people to ask questions. It shows they are interested.
