    So I coined this phrase a while back when i got my jeep wrangler. I was wondering if anyone else had heard of this and/or used another term to describe it.

    The Jeep Factor - Definition - the hotness factor of any guy driving a jeep wrangler automatically increases between 20-50% while he is in it. Meaning a guy who you normally wouldn't find attractive can get attention from you if he is in a jeep. This also applies to motorcycles (at least crotch rockets) and pick up trucks.

    I agree re: the Jeep Wrangler. I've always thought it would be a good idea to pass a law making it illegal for woman and unattractive guys to drive Wranglers.

    And yes, it would be my definition of unattractive.

    If he's driving a Jeep Rubicon, increase the hot factor an extra 10%!

    Carrying a football or basketball around with you after a game/play is even better than driving around in a jeep. Big women don't carry around footballs.

    I walked into a local gay bar the other night with my football and I swear, everyone was smiling at me...nice.

    Damn too bad those Wranglers are getting a best of like 15/20 MPG; I've been considering purchase of one but suppose I'll avoid because of mileage until way later when it can be a "weekend" vehicle.

    On the other hand, as a "married" man I had not considered the fringe benefits...hmmmmicon_idea.gificon_cool.gif

    My Wrangler has been reduced to just about a weekend car. I take the bus during the week now. It's actually kind of nice that way because when I do drive it on the weekends, it's way more enjoyable. It helps me fight off the trade down demons that made me trade in my first Wrangler.

    I think it's just the openness.

    When i lived in the south (well northern virginia which is not really the south, just technically), i believed in the jeep factor. now for me it's definitely the motorcycle factor. it doesn't hurt that unless you're really out of shape a good motorcycle jacket will make you look 10x hotter.

    in addition to motorcycles, for me the hotness of a guy increases at least 20% when he's reading a smart magazine: harper's monthly, the believer, monocle, etc. i can't explain it. i guess it's a good as carrying around a basketball for some of the other guys on here.

    I have been saying this about jeeps for years!!!

    I also have a similar belief that most guys look a few degrees hotter when they are wearing a baseball cap.

    Sometimes I have to drive my wife's Jeep Cherokee Laredo, and I always feel like a dork in it, even though that kick-ass 190HP I-6 will lay rubber.
