I'm sure we all get the regular "nice Jeep" call, and I, too, just smile and say thanks unless asked about it.

What used to really suck was when my nephews and niece (kids of my former Army brother) used to ask to ride in my "HUMM-V".

My personal favorite event was one morning on the way to work a few months ago in the big red box (97SW). A 3/4-year old kid on the side of the road waiting for a bus with his mom and siblings goes absolutely batshit, bouncing up and down waving, screaming "fire truck! fire truck!". At the time, I'd wished I'd had an air horn, as a wave back seemed inadequate.

Saw a green SW heading north on the Merrit Parkway on Thursday around 7pm while we were heading south from Stowe to NJ in the 'burban. I cannot remember the exit but I don't think we were far from the Sakorsky Bridge. Nice looking truck from the split second view of it, 3 lights on the front bumper/guard, slight lift, guessing 285's tires.

I'm in Chisinau, Moldova at a NATO exercise this week. Austrian water purification team brought their beautiful 2009 130, and Serbs brought their 110 CSW (white one). Also a Moldovan (I think) 110 2 door.

Does anybody know what windows are in the rear of the two door? I have looked around for a while now but don't feel that I have found the right ones. I have heard "African Spec" but can't find anything by that name.

Yeah ECR is where I saw them called African spec. Those sliders would be really nice for airflow. That green truck is great.

ALR5080 and ALR5081 for the sliding side windows.

Every time we have needed them they have been a bitch to locate.
