Default Friday poll - Worst 40 quote

Which is the most despised phrase in our 4wd community? Just for fun - not trying to pick on anyone.

I voted "nice jeep" but the one I really hate is "triple locked" when referring to an 80 series with lockers. The transfer case is not a locker

Yeah, Nice jeep is dumb.

My two biggest are

T4R. Hate that. What are you, 13?

and the one that makes me feel like dope-slapping someone is, "Whats the best, cheapest....." Seriously? You can have best, and you can have cheapest, but you cannot have both. Quit whining that quality costs money.

I actually don't like "RIG". I have no idea why, but it makes me unreasonably angry. Haha. It doesn't drill for oil, and I didn't stitch it together with coat hangers.

I always thought "hundy" sounded stupid but you can call your truck anything you want.

A while back when I drove my 40 to work I overheard a kid say to his dad, "Did you see that cool old army Jeep out back?"

I am familiar with the sailing term and origin of "she" for describing the ship. All have their place. Describing a rig, truck, Jeep, Hundy, or any vehicle is not one of them. There are some ladies who would take offense to such things......

Was asked the "what year is your FJ" question about the 40 yesterday. Told the guy it is an FJ40 and that it's a '77. At least he said it was "nice" which is another dumb descriptor.
