Own A Jeep, Best Own The Problems That Come With It

Catherine Bach as "Daisy Duke" on the set of CBS's "The Dukes of Hazzard."

So you've seen those vehicles called JEEP on the road? You just had to have one. Your friends have one. You remember Daisy Duke having one when you were a kid watching the Dukes of Hazzard on TV. The Army had them during World War II, The Korean War, even the Vietnam War. Again, you just had to go out and get one.

Did you foresee all the problems that would come with Jeeps? You call it a Money Pit. JEEP most say stands for, Just Empty Every Pocket. Let's not forget the socials! The ego's of those who think their rig is better. Those who feel they know it all, drove it all, seen it all, experienced it all.

What about the financial problems? Replacing axle seals, brakes, oil coolers, axle shafts, tie rods, needing to keep up with your buddy who has the latest and greatest.

But you bought it to ride in it, to drive in it, to explore in it. Have you done that? Or are you parked down at the local taco hut on Tuesday's? Doesn't matter your reason. It's what matters to you. It's yours...or as some say, it's the bank's. Even at that, who cares? It's still yours to make yours.
