  • Jeep Fund

    Most of us eat, sleep and dream Jeeps however the money is never or almost never there for mods. Call me what you will or flame the crap out of me, or what ever else makes you feel better after reading this. Here is my idea; Jeeper "A" needs a new front bumper. He/she posts on here about the need for a new bumper and all that are will to give $5 or $10 reply to the same post. In theory a new part could be had for as little as half price depending on the amount "granted" by fellow Jeepers. The catch is that all parts MUST be bought at 4WDH!! No "grant" money can be any higher than $10 from any one person. The Jeeper that gets the new mod MUST return the favor by "granting" $20 to the next Jeep fund request. You can only request the "grant" money ONCE every six months. And you WOULD have to be a member of this forum!! If this could somehow be tracked on the forum, I think it would work. Now ya'll can start with the and the and this too oh, and don't forget this one

      We have some special people on here. Typing and addition is enough for them, having a complex system like that is just pushing it. Then you'd get the people who register and drop off the radar screen after they get their money.

        I think the concept is good, but you are right too many things could/would go wrong.

              I think this is called a pyramid scheme... which is illegal.

              But I like the idea anyway. Maybe we could all move to Montana together and build our own little compound, adopt socialist views, and collect guns and other weapons and dare the feds to come after us.

              Ooops... did I type that here? Sorry... wrong forum.

              Actually, on a serious note. Money is very tight for me too. But I take great pride in saving and then getting to buy the stuff that I end up with. In that this stuff is not cheap... it makes me a little more careful about what I get. Sure, I'm just as bad as anyone else who owns a jeep... I look through the 4WD catalog and want one of each thing listed. It just makes it that much more exciting when you do actually get to order something. It also encourages you to be resourceful... I could have paid several hundred dollars for a rear bumper and tire carrier... But I was able to convince a friend to help me build my own and for about a third of the price.

              Just my way of dealing with the fact that my budget is VERY jeep poor.

                    That was in no way shape or form the concept of this. It was just a random late night out loud thought.

                        Why do you guys post similar things all the time? lol what are you twins? I think a better idea would be 4wd getting together and having a nice car wash with all proceeds benefitting me...

                          Why this wouldn't work just for the fun of it:

                          1338 members in this forum.
                          Who would go first...Yellow cause it was your idea.
                          Donate $5 - $10 dollars for mods for someone else (alway glad to help fellow jeeper)
                          Lets say i am #1000 on the list...I would have to donate $4995 or $9999 before i can even see my money from the rest of the members.

                          Sounds great if you are #1 on the list!

                          Here's to you having a thought so late....

                            This is truly a briliant idea! Why didn't someone think of this before?
                            Oh wait Karl Marx did...
                            Not to dog you dude but...

                            It's an issue of social leveling outside of the economic strata. It is inherently unfair to those who need a little and overly fair to those who need a lot. Like SB pointed out if your last on the list and only need a bumper you've just paid $9K for it. The bumper actually would have only cost you $250 if youd just gone and bought it.
                            This leads to every one trying to get more of their share from the system and asking for everything they can get, instead of what they need. I certainly would pay the 9K if I was getting a set of D60 axles out of the deal. With everyone going for broke the system cannot support the cost and ultimately fails. The first few folks are happy and everyone else gets hosed.
                            Thats the primary reason communism failed. A very great economist said that "it's the great parody that the downfall of communism was that there was no money in it."
