Thank you!

Okay,

Question 1- is McCracken's first name Phil.

#2- We wheel with Jeeps all the time. When and where did you submit your invitation? And for what trail(s). Please.

#3- Are you the weiner mobile guy?

OK, let me start off by saying that I can sympathize with all of you as I wheel with a Jeep Liberty. So I know how you can get harassed both on the trail and on the web. I also must admit that I didn't realize that people actually wheeled with the H2.

I first came across this video on the premiere Jeep Liberty Owners forum (http://www.lostkjs.com/forum/phpBB2/). I viewed the video and was a little annoyed at first by the attitude shown in the video, but also impressed with the wheeling shots of the H2. I then followed the link at the end of the video and came to this site. I've spent the last hour or so reading all of the posts here and I have come to understand the ideas behind this video. The problem is, this video is spreading like rapid fire and is going to be the first glimpse of the H2 wheeling community for many, many people; most of whom probably will not bother to come to this site and read this thread in its entirety. Instead they might think that the video represents the attitude of the H2 wheeling community, which it clearly does not (for most of you at least ... I have suspicions about one or two who shall remain nameless, but every group has its 10%).

So, for your community, this video may be a double edged sword. It will hopefully open more eyes to the capabilities and wheeling community of the H2, but it could also stir up allot of bad energy if it's taken in the wrong way (which is easy to do).

<step up on soap box>Personally, my one objection to it are the shots of Hitler and Hussein. This, to me, shows a blatant disrespect to all our Armed Forces who have given life and limb to remove these dictators from power. It was in bad taste, and I am not a person who is easily offended; parody and satire are fine, but this went to far IMHO.</soapbox off>

Anyway, for me at least, my eyes have been opened and I hope I get the chance to wheel with some of you soon (I'm near Pittsburgh, Pa)... Maybe I can make the Aug. 20th Paragon run, I've been itching to get back there, my last time there I was still bone stock.

Thanks for reading,

Hoss

you want my email addy ? well just pm me for it

pirate cralwer 07-25-2005 01:45 AM

Hey h2co, just log on and post up or read when the next git together is, wheelin is about treading lightly and having fun.

h2co-pilot 07-25-2005 01:46 AM

Who's Addy? What the hell is going on here?

Can't you guys get a representitive or Jeep Embassador or something, this is getting really old having to explain and console every one of you.

DennisAJC 07-25-2005 01:50 AM

So tired of explaining along with my fellow H2ers, I'll just cut and paste my response.

I will respond to you the way some Jeepers have talked to us over the years.


NO, NO, NO, I will NOT be educated! I'm closing my ears to you and assess the Jeep the way I see fit.


-The Liberty, TJ,YJ ALL share the same parts and frame as indicated in the video.

-Jeep is German owned.

-Countries like Iraq use Jeep.

-You all work at Burger Joints.

-Stay at the Mall and Bling your ride, that's what Jeeps are for.

Some of these are not true mind you, but the general public doesn't know that. They'll believe what I tell them because I can. I can spread misinformation about the Jeep as good or better than you guys can about the H2.


The video is designed to make you feel and react the way we've felt and reacted over the years being H2 owners.


I'm glad you enjoyed my video.


MORE TO COME.....

timgco 07-25-2005 01:51 AM

WOW- I was out of State since Wed. and just read this entire thread. OMG, ILMAO!

But, I have come to a couple of conclusions:
1) Nice vid Dennis.
2) We got a couple of new Jeeper's on our site that are cool. Welcome guys.
3) The rest of the NEWB's are----

SOFA KING WE TODD DID!

great post hoss, {nice user name btw} so many of the guy's here got there belts alittle to tight, and yea some of the posts on other boards go to far, you have ignore the bs in them, to me I would love to see a h2 and a h3 get some real mud on them and maybe a few bumps along the way, a little rubbin never hurt anyone.

PARAGON 07-25-2005 01:53 AM

Get the **** off of the our soldiers ****. I served this county in the United States Marine Corps. I have had about my fill of sidesteppers trying to use this as their own cross to bear just because they got their panties in a wad over something. Get the hell over it. The person who made the video is not an American. He did not go to american schools and did not serve in any of our Armed Forces. You tweedle-dums are making more out of the pictures he used becuase you should know better and should understand their meaning in the context of the video. None of you who have even mentioned Hitler in a Jeep has even had the balls to say what your problem with it is. You side-step it and push it off on our poor soldiers "over their" fighting. Screw that. Those sumbitches don't want to hear your whining and don't want you using them as your little pattycakes for hedging your weakened egos. ****, I imagine a bunch of them have seen the video and have laughed their ass off at it.

I know my 78 year old neighbor who served in WWII as a grunt sure did.

Tell you what, you go whine and bitch over in your little forums and leave it at that otherwise it will just get worse. We are grownups, we even have driver's licenses and were able to buy our trucks and can take responsibility for our actions and don't need idiots who can't speak the English language or even worry with accurate details preaching to us what we should be doing, thinking or saying.

all this video is going to do is create more hate and discontent amoung the every, Its bad enough as it is.

hopefully this post won't get deleted but will serve as a reminder not to look down on others.

To all the other REAL H2 owners enjoy your beasts and tread lightly and safely.

Too bad you can't count. But it's no big surprise.

If you're from Pirate them you're probably one of the many asshats that gets tiny wood from looking at pics & vids of the misfortune of others.

Who are the "every"?

2). Ummmm.....
3). Errrrr...
4). The H2 guys that wheel have been shunned and made fun off on the web since 2002. It's 2005 guys (that's 3 years for the Jeepers ) personally I gave up trying to be a part of general wheeling sites in 2003.
5). Errr.
2). 3). and 5). clears it all up for me. I was so confused by that language thing. Thanks Alec.

Who the hell are you talking too. Do you realize you are still on the computer, on the internet? Is addy your imaginary friend?

Hello addy? How are you doing this fine evening? Nice to meet you too.

I'm glad you said "probably" cause that means that there is a chance that i'm not a asshat, go back and read my other postings that you have skipped over, and also other users postings as well.

oh well enough of this, hopefully some of you will be out on the trails, I look forward to it.

The invited still stands, and hopefully the next vid will be one without the bs in it.

RasterMaster 07-25-2005 02:21 AM

Damn! I think I need to watch that video...again! Dennis, please make the next installment to be even more hilariously in bad taste so we can have another 50 trolls in 2 days.

The entertainment value alone has been priceless!
