The Jeep Website - You gotta see this

Posted by Jean Wnuk on Thu, Jan 29, 2009 @ 09:21 AM

Visit today. You gotta see this. The animation and copy is hilarious. I especially can relate to the description they wrote regarding the build-in backseat babysitter. Pretty funny.

Those Grand Cherokee Jeeps just keep getting cushier and cushier. I may have to get one in another 10 years when I want a Jeep for comfort instead of just for fun.

Word Clouds. The modern version of poetry?

Posted by Jean Wnuk on Tue, Jan 27, 2009 @ 08:57 PM

Today I'm blogging about something completely unrelated to my business and yet something I spend almost an hour on today. It's called and basically it does in 10 seconds what my awesome graphic designer took 3 hours to do.

Last year we compiled a whole bunch of words related to the off-road world and turned them into a funky tee-shirt -- our "Off-Road Words" shirt.

Today, I popped those same words into and got this:

Go Topless Day May 9th 2009

Posted by Jean Wnuk on Tue, Jan 27, 2009 @ 03:51 PM

This post is to help me keep a running list of how many of you will be showing up in LANCASTER, MA for our GO Topless Day on May 9th, 2009. Last year the weather sucked - it was cold, damp and rainy, but we had over 75 Jeeps there and over 150 people show up. We ate warm chili, admired the Jeeps, played in the mud a bit in the back fields and gave away some decent raffle prizes. Our current location can support about another 100+ Jeeps. Who's in? If it is on your schedule, let me know where you are coming from and how many of you are coming. Want to make sure we are PREpared!

What Jeep Jamboree are you going to in 2009?

Posted by Jean Wnuk on Tue, Jan 20, 2009 @ 09:50 PM

I think we'll be heading out to the Northeast based Jeep Jams this year. We are a sponsor again and we had such a great time last year on the Rubicon that we will do it again, but closer. Given that there probably won't be a Camp Jeep this year (nothing confirmed, just a prediction given the state of affairs at Chrsyler), let's support the great folks at JJUSA!

Handmade Jeep Christmas Ornament

Posted by Jean Wnuk on Fri, Jan 09, 2009 @ 10:17 AM

When I posted an article in December about our "Charlie Brown Christmas Tree", our customer Ivo, in Belgium took action. He's probably never seen the Charlie Brown Christmas Special (watch my favorite scene below), but he saw our sad tree and tried to cheer it up.


Did he ever! Last week we got the nicest Christmas tree ornament we've ever seen. Check it out. He made it himself.

And now our Christmas Tree is Happy.


Na, that's not it. Actually, here it is:

Thank you Ivo and Mike for your kind well wishes.

Go Topless Days Abound

Posted by Jean Wnuk on Wed, Jan 07, 2009 @ 09:56 PM

This year there appears to be 3 "Official Go Topless Days". (one has nothing to do with Jeeps, so let's get that one out of the way first, so you guys can concentrate when I get to OUR All Things Jeep Go Topless Day! )

1. NATIONAL GOTOPLESS PROTEST DAY is Sunday, March 9th and is a nationwide event in favor of men AND women being able to be topless in public places (that allow it, of course.) is the website that talks about it. While I won't be marching at this one, I am completely in favor of it.  Why shouldn't women and men have the same tan lines when they leave the beach at the end of the day?

2. Next, the hardcore Jeepers at wanna prove that they can have a grand time freezing their butts off, and are hosting a Go Topless Day on Feb. 3rd. (It should be about 2 degrees here that day, so I am definitely not going topless. I'll admit, I am definitely *NOT* a hardcore Jeeper. Here's the thread on this one: is a great resource for any Jeeper. I send people there all the time when they ask me some esoteric question about the finer points of their particular vehicle. It's a great community and there's a whole range of sane and crazies over there. ;)

3. And finally, my favorite day

Worldwide Go Topless Day - May 9th (maybe it will be a little warmer) sponsored by us. Last year we had almost 5000 Jeep owners worldwide participating. There were events all over the world and locally we had an event and managed to cut the top off an XJ without bleeding.


This year will be bigger and better. We have Go Topless Day T-shirts already for sale and contests, prizes, local events and all will be posted ongoingly here and on our Go Topless Info Page.

So put it on the calendar. If you don't have one yet, I recommend these.
