    i know you guys got some good stuff. by non-wheeler, i mean soccer moms, dumb guys, that sort of stuff.

    i can't ever remember being asked a dumb question on my rig. most of the time, people just ask how the trails are.

    I still can't get over when people look at my rig and ask...

    "Do you really take that thing off-road?"

    What is this world coming to?!?

    Re: What\'s the dumbest/silliest question a \"non-wheeler\" has asked you?

    I have been asked...
    "Is that thing 4wd...?"
    "Do you wheel it...?"
    "Don't you get mad when you break parts...?"
    "Wow, what did you hit to get all those dents...?"
    "Isn't it cold w/ no top or doors...?"
    and just last week at the gas station a guy asked me "Why did you put a Blazer body on a P/U frame?"

    Re: What\'s the dumbest/silliest question a \"non-wheeler\" has asked you?

    "What year is you're bronco?"

    "Did you cut the top off you're self?"

    And one of the best "Is that thing four wheel drive?"

    Funny thing is most of the time I get goofy stuff like that it usually comes from one of those know it all types.

    See my post from a few weeks ago about the woman who though my mud was a high dollar paint job. I also get asked "Is it four wheel drive?"

    I had a guy in the parking lot ask me why I don't lock my doors and roll up my windows.....












    He actually asked this while we were standing at my truck with the softop on and the sides rolled up /forums/images/graemlins/eek.gif /forums/images/graemlins/rolleyes.gif

    Re: What\'s the dumbest/silliest question a \"non-wheeler\" has asked you?

    If I hear "nice Bronco." or "What year is your Bronco?" one more time I will just puke! Other popular dumb a$$ question is "do you ever use the winch?" "why are your tires so big?" and after explaining what I use this rig for the #1 question (asked with a smug look on their face)

    "What kind of mileage do you get?" My answer?

    Oh, with all the mods I can get 35-40 mpg but it only runs on the blood of envormentalists!

    Oh yes, the NUMBER 1 question I forgot cause I block it out as much as possible is, "how is that bronco doing?" My good friends ask this at least every couple days. And not to bug me they just forget that badly. Its 5 feet away from them, big red and has a chevy logo on the grill and they ask hows the bronco? I always start by saying, BLAZER, and its fine. There is a late 70s bronco at school, the kid doesn't drive it in the snow or rain.... I don't want to be likened to that thank you.

    hehe I used to think the one k10 in town with 44s was a monster truck when I was little. I love the looks on little kids face when you roll around with a big ass truck. Especially in the snow, their eyes light up when you crack it and go sideways or something.
