    Ever heard of the "FUH2" website. People post pics of themselves flipping off H2s. Apparently some people can't believe other people would drive such gas guzzlers while american soldiers are out fighting for things H2 owners "take for granted"... Most likely started by a prius owner.... Wonder if it's trickling down to us H3 owners...

    Makes me really want a "my hummer ran over your prius" bumper sticker...

    I never get the bird. Only Jeeps wanting to mess with me. I find it humorous!!

    I had a 2013 lifted 4DR Wrangler try to keep up with me on the freeway the other day in my H3 Alpha. At first when he saw me coming up behind him he got over in front of me to keep me from passing, and I was laughing to myself because he had no clue I had a V8. Well I started to push 80, 85, behind him and he finally got over and I just blasted past him with a nice rumble of a V8. Later on down the road I exited the freeway and of coarse by now he's seen the ARB Front Bumper, Winch, Large tires, and then from the rear the Bilstein 5100's and the G2 Aluminum Diff Cover/Guard, well I looked over as he finally caught up to me and I actually got a wave and a thumbs up!!

    Guess I caught him by surprise that some people actually mod, lift, and wheel their H3's!!! I have plenty of Jeep's "try" to mess with me but once they either hear the V8 or I blast past their 65MPH top speed mall crawler rigs I leave them wondering with a puzzled look which is so priceless.

    I still own 2 Jeeps an 05 Wrangler Unlimited and an 04 Grand Cherokee AWD with the 4.7L V8 and while their good vehicles for the most part it's the new wave of Jeep owners I can't stand. Ever since the JK came out the mentality of a Jeep owner has changed so much. It used to be all about modifying your rigs, and wheeling. Now it's how many accessories do you have, clean it up for a trip to the mall, and lets slap a huge stupid nickname on the hood to fit in with all the other people.... I was an Organizer of a Jeep Club, but once those people started joining and taking over vs the hardcore wheelers I resigned, and I have since not rejoined a Jeep Club.. I wheel with friends and I am not picky or stuck up when it comes to brands of 4x4's. I wave at Jeeps, Hummers, Blazers, Toyota's, Mitsubishi's, Suzuki's, or any modified 4x4 that some one actually wheels. Some people wave some people don't, but I have yet to get a bird shot at me lol.

    I have had a ton of jeep waves lately but the other day some bitch in a bone stock fj cruiser flipped me off. I didnt cut her off or anything I could think of that warranted a flip off. Not sure what her problem was because every time I passed her or she passed me I got the finger each time.

    Lol. I think it may be because mine is bone stock. No lift or anything they try to "mess" with me. However, Now that you mention it Best4X4, I had a 2 door wrangler attempt to jump me off the line at a light. He got ahead before I put my foot into it. My little I5 passed him right up. And I also agree, I don't mind any rig that's modified to wheel, But for the most part here, I've noticed, the Jeeps and FJ's are mall cruisers. I don't rock crawl, But i'm a big fan of getting muddy and dirty!

    there was ribbing about my driving a Hummer in my SAR group; until I pointed this out: whenever we're transporting people, my H3 always fills first....


    oh, and the other part of that scientific study, the Toyota FJ always fills last if at all....

    I've had it happen here in Austin a time or two. I've also been blatantly boxed out in traffic, etc. I have pretty mild driving habits and a really stress-free commute to and from work so I just relax, get where I'm going when I get there and let other people get all worked up over nothing if they so choose. Whatever makes people feel better about themselves - if flipping off, cutting off or boxing out a random person in an H3 is how people get their kicks, whatever. I find if I want space in traffic and someone doesn't want to let me have it for no good reason (changing lanes, etc), I just slowly take the space and people readily give it up when the alternative is testing the basic law of physics which states that two objects cannot occupy the same space at the same time. The off-roaders in my area seem to have the same mutual respect for the H3 as I do for their rigs.
    Current: '14 Jeep Wrangler Unlimited Rubicon. to build thread!

    Sold: '07 H3 Lux w/ a ton of stuff done to it. It's in the garage still if you want to see what was done.

    Despite how yuppie this area is and the various econoboxes that like to tailgate me, reactions to the H3T have been very good. I haven't had any issues getting into busy traffic, merging, etc. Lots of stares, people following me to get a closer look, I even overheard a group of people talking about how cool it was at the bank last week (they were right next to me but didn't realize I was the owner until I went to leave, very funny reactions).

    I get the looks and obvious conversations directed towards the rig, my wife says I'm full of crap LOL! But she's coming around. My new line as it becomes more & more obvious and I catch individuals checking it out, and either ogling, or coming to terms with how b!tchin it is, is "aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaand FAN!" Then I look at my wife and smile like a priest who just managed to pull off 200 baptisms in 30 min(impressive amount of splashing btw, let alone upper body strength, regardless of how buoyant his fat converts are, and am sure the priest moonlights as an auctioneer) dunno why that analogy kept embellishing in my head this morning. It's early, but it's hittin my funny spot. Sooo much digressing. FANS! Gotta love em!
