I could see the Jeep wave when Jeeps were a small group. In my neighborhood there are about as many or maybe more Jeeps than pickups. Then they are mostly mall crawlers. One local group goes "off road" meaning maintained gravel roads. I don't feel the connection with them. I'm not trying to be Jeepier than thou, but after attending a couple gatherings I found we had little in common and less to talk about.
I'm not criticizing anyone. I'm all for everyone doing what makes them happy, including me.
