5 Problems Only Jeep Wrangler Owners Understand
The Jeep Wrangler is one of the most unique vehicles you can buy today. In a sea of crossover SUVs and sedans, it maintains the unique design–on top of incredible durability–that helped it acquire a base of admirers and buyers over the past two decades.
Whether you own a Jeep Wrangler or are simply looking for more information about the vehicle, here are five problems (that aren’t really problems) you won’t understand until you own a Wrangler.
1. Everyone Wants a Ride
Let’s face it, if you own a Jeep Wrangler and your friends are all driving bland sedans, they’re going to want to ride with you when the opportunity presents itself. The problem is, you’ve got limited seating in a standard XJ–and even if it looks like rain everyone wants you to leave the top at home.
2. Waving to Fellow Wrangler Owners
While the camaraderie between Wrangler owners is great–and the friendly, outgoing community is priceless–sometimes the waving can become a chore. Commuters with Wranglers know this all too well. You may go 10 miles without seeing a fellow Wrangler, but there are also times that you may see 5 in just a single mile. And if you don’t wave or see one too late, you may feel guilty!
3. The Desire to Go Offroad (All the Time)
If you’ve ever sat in heavy traffic wishing there were an instant bypass, it only gets worse as a Jeep Wrangler owner. You see ways your Jeep could escape the traffic jam and get you to work or back home faster. That temptation could lead to trouble when you barrel through someone’s field.
4. Too Many Accessories and Possible Modifications
Lifts, tires, tops, headlights, seatcovers–there’s always one more thing you need to make your Wrangler awesome. But all of those accessories and modifications add up. Wrangler owners often complain about having too many options when it comes to these things.
5. Wrangler Owners Are Cool
Listen, nobody passes by a Wrangler driver–or any Jeep driver for that matter–and thinks they’re uncool for driving a Jeep. The Wrangler is the ultimate cool vehicle. It’s not a muscle car or exotic sports car, but it speaks to people. The positive attention is just another perk of owning a Wrangler. (Just let people know it’s not cool to touch it!)
