Yeah, I know this is a lame request, but I've wasted far too much company time looking for the "Official Jeep Recovery Vehicle" decal / bumper sticker. My two neighbors have a Cherokee and Wrangler respectively and I have a serious hobbyhorse about getting this on the Scout for some reason... :D
Any leads?
Thanks!

Put that sticker on then the next day you go to the dude with the yj and say i need a pull, getting cocky always is funny but then the murphys law kicks in and then you know the rest :p at least in my book that is the case

As my 2 buddies found out friday on my private rockpile, a commanche with no drivers ball joints left and a 4 runner with no tie rod and no burrf of the driver side anymore. Of course i went first like nothing and the cockieness ensued, but i'm sure the coors light had nothing to do with it. :D

Oh, I'm sure :D It's a very friendly, tongue-in-cheek thing with us though. "Hey Eric, where are the other two cylinders on that Jeep?" "Hey Brandon, you can't paint the Scout and get rid of the primer and rust, it's like street cred." We're always "helping" each other work on vehicles and other crap, especially if "helping" means pointing out things that were already tried and drinking the other's beer. One in particular is in on helping with "project dump the tax refund into the Scout 2006" with me too. :cool:

I'd definately put one on there and then point it at the closest bud, but alls i am saying is for me personally every time i get cocky with my foreign friends with zuks, toys, nissmos, and that i always end up deeper in the mud or farther in the rocks than them but they pull me back if i can't winch up. I don't need many hooks but it seems like a 4 beer buzz at your buds and some friendly ribbing and next thing you know you are getting the razzing since they are not stuck and i are, but it always goes back and forth till we all die as that is the way it is here and probably everywhere else

I had mine made by a vinyl sign company locally in about 99 or 00,..I dont recall them being too expensive, I had 20 made and kept 4 and sold the rest , couldnt have been too pricey or else I would never have done it. 20 may have cost me 60.00,..I sold them for 10.00.

Too funny Bruce. I laughed out loud! :D

Who's Scout is that with such a shiny, chrome bumper? :)

I like the "Charter Member SUV Recovery Team" sticker I got from Allan Ericson several years ago. Fits an old Binder to a T, makes the point, but yet at the same time doesn't point a finger at anyone in particular.

Dave, you got off cheap. Marian bought a whole scout from Allan to get her sticker ;)

I'm sure you guys have seen the "It's a Jeep thing, you wouldn't understand" stickers before.
Well I got one for my Trooper that says "Isuzu... because I DO understand" and one for my Scout that says "I don't want to understand". I think they had "Official Jeep recovery vehicle" or something similar too. I opted for the less threatining retalitory stickers instead. Anyways I think I got them from independent4x.com but I can't seem to find them on the site right now.

Those Jeep guys can be really stupid sometimes...

First of all, did they not expect to get high centered? And look where they attached the tow strap on the bug!

Mall Cruiser Recovery Vehicle is a good one. Seems like in Lars pic, always some idiot thinks they can go anywhere since they have "4 wheel drive" :rolleyes:

Case in point: Last week I'm driving by a vacant lot that has a dug burm around it to keep folks out. There's a newer little Blazer stuck coming out, and a brand new crew cab F-250 diesel stuck going in. I stop and ask if they need help and the lady tells me to not try to come in or I'll get stuck too. I look over at the "road" going into the lot and reply that I think I can make it.

As I'm backing up to the Ford in the lot to pull it forward, another guy stops in the street to pull it back out. He claims he'll get him out. So after I watch them screw the football for a few minutes and make lots of tire smoke with his 2X Chebbie, I hook up to the front of the Ford, pull him over and have him pull the woman back over. She had her foot on the brake the whole time :rolleyes: But the ITEC motor drug her anyway :D Both said they had 4 wheel drive and I told them, "no not really" and explained why they didn't and why you don't drive over 3' hills in a stock trim vehicle.

I doubt they learned anything, and I'll probably be pulling them from a snow bank next weekend by the local ski lodge. But it will cost them $20 :p
