Somebody recognizes your truck and is kind enough to strike up a conversation about it, just take it as complement and go on with your day. I love talking about WilderNests in parking lots. Half the people have no idea what they are, much less exact terms. "Hey, isn't that one of those Westfalias or something?" "Yup, it's a WilderNest!"

I'm starting to not like "off roading." I don't think my truck has ever been off road, in fact I plan to explore some new Forrest Service roads this Saturday...

I'd rather go Jeepin' than off roading. heck I'd rather go Jeepin' than do a lot of things, for that matter.

The one that pissed me off most is "nice Jeep".

I just drove the 40 from CB to Tucson (yes, 16 hours and temps of 108...no A/C, No radio, No cruise control) and it was GREAT. Saw one other 40 northbound on I-25 south of ABQ and they gave me the high sign. One guy at a gas stop in T or C offered to trade his two grandsons for the 40....must have been a bad camping trip....

Most cool was two young kids at a burger stop...the said "Nice Ride"...best comment they could have made! T

I only had two dates ever know the difference between my FJ40 and a Jeep. One owned a mild CJ5 and was very impressed with the 40 the other just knew it was a Cruiser. Neither outlasted my relationship with the 40
