Don't Overdo

Putting a roll cage on your jeep impresses the ladies.

Painting a roll pattern on your jeep, not so much.

3 When I see vehicles (more often 4wd pickamups than Jeeps) with the show bars which are blatently not structural, I find it hard to resist evil thoughts about rollovers.

4 A roll pattern is painted on rockets and test missiles, often in large black and white quadrants, so that any roll rate can be measured during flight. Something like the shuttle doesn't need it because it's wildly asymmetrical, but a rocket like the Saturn V, while not completely symmetrical, was close enough to need the visual clues provided by the roll pattern during flight.

5 Only in a Jeep!Few words where ever more true.I've owned both a 78 Wagoneer and a 46 Willies and I can honestly say that they where both totally BAD ASS!
Oh,and painting a roll pattern on yer Jeep could come in handy if you plan on rolling it!?

6 Oh, it's that 2 X 2 checker-board thing. Got it.

Yeah, that would look fuckin' ridiculous on a Jeep.

7 I've always wanted to get one of those upside-down stickers for my Jeep's windshield that says "If you can read this, roll me over!"

8 Is that why they had the checkerboard pattern on the firewalls of Golden Age hotrods?
