I don't get it! Its a Jeep - it was built to be scratched - to boldly go where no one has gone before! Through forests, up and down streams, over boulders and mountain tops. What do people think the high ground clearance and roll cage are for?

thats daft! a car was NOT built to be scratched!

its designed to carry passengers safely over different terrains!
Thats waht the roll cage and high ground clearance are for!

Just because it is needed for this does not mean you have to sacrifice pride in your belongings!

Why was a jeep built to be scrtched?
It was built to go over rugged terrain.
Thats like me saying little cars ment for cities are made to be crashed cos they drive them around other cars a lot.

We have a Jeep and have never encountered any hatred.

I've had 3 4x4's now.
The reason I own them is because I simply can't get in & out of lower vehicles.
Only last month though I was being questioned on why I have a 4x4 ( at a working trials comp) & I ended up towing one of the competitors out of the mud. So I do use it "properly" as & when I need to.

I wondered if any of you lot who drive them have problems too,you know the look like you have the plague just because your driving one,Would be very interesting in hearing your views for or even why people hate them,cheers all,xxxxxxx

alexandra and Hevvur:

And so say two representatives from the nation who gave the world the LandRover?

And small cars in big cities are not built to be crashed. The go to pieces when they do.

General Purpose vehicles (GP) - thats what Jeep "stands for - are built to withstand rougher treatment and scratches are a consequense of that treatment. The roll cage is to protect rhe driver and passengers, but also to allow the vehicle to be uprighted with minimal damage.

Maybe other people don't hate Jeep owners, but find them ridiculous.

As do all cars!

Only if you allow it to get scratched! thats like saying family cars are built to get dents in doors as when they park in car parks some idiot always whacks your car!

Maybe other people don't hate Jeep owners, but find them ridiculous.

Erm whoa tigger! calm down! if anything were built to withstand SCRATCHS it would have scratch resistant paint!

Now that's what I call a REAL 4 x 4 along with the Range Rovers, you actually see them out in the countryside doing their jobs! Half of the lookalikes on the road would get stuck in the mud quicker than my astra estate! Funnilly enough, I'll never forget we were at a horse show once and it poured all day as it does at horse shows, and because the cars had been parked in the field all day, most of them couldn't move. However, at the time we had a 6 series BMW, and guess what we towed out of the field????? You got it!!!!
