A Jeep Thing Is Now Just Ducky

If you've ever heard someone say "It's a jeep thing, you wouldn't understand," they're probably right. Jeep is its own culture, and if you don't get it, well, you're not alone. It's a phrase that's been around for years and  is often used by Jeep enthusiasts to describe the unique bond that they share.

Sure, other car enthusiasts have their own cultures and ways of doing things, but Jeepers are in a class all their own. They're a passionate bunch who love nothing more than spending time off-road, getting dirty, and pushing their vehicles to the limit.

A recent article from autoblog.com talks about a gigantic 61 foot tall inflatable duck that towered over the 2022 Detroit Auto Show.  What does a giant inflatable duck have to do with a Jeep?

According to the article " Why a duck? Because it commemorates a recent trend in the Jeep community called "ducking," in which Jeep owners hand out rubber ducks to compliment one another's rides."


So, if you see a Jeep with a rubber duck on it, don't be alarmed. It's just a friendly way for other jeep owners to show appreciation for their fellow Jeep enthusiasts. What about you? Are you looking to get into the Jeep culture? Or are you needing another car?

Benefits Of A Truck With Features Of An SUV

Trucks have been synonymous with the American way of life for generations. They've been used to haul everything from livestock, lumber, material and everything in between. The trend for years has been to transform them from rugged reliable work vehicles into luxury machines. Some have even come to think of them as big SUVs. It's no wonder that pick-up trucks are some of the most popular vehicles in America.

Luxury With Function

One of the hottest features to hit the market is automated and multi-function tailgates. Ram took the lead in 2019 and introduced their Multi-Function Tailgate. This available feature allows you to open and close their tailgate with the push of a button. The Multi-Function Tailgate also features a 60/40 split door that can be opened to about 90 degrees, making it easier to load and unload cargo.

Safety That Won't Bruise Your Ego

The Multi-Function Tailgate has been a huge success due to its many features and benefits. The automated opening and closing is a big time saver, and the split door design is extremely helpful when loading and unloading cargo. What you might not realize however is its safety benefits.
