The Japanese have a term for the pleasing decay of objects: “Wabi-sabi.”
Ultimately, wabi sabi is about imperfection, impermanence, and incompleteness…which sounds a lot like buying and driving a Jeep. Always searching for that next big modification. Waiting for the moment something breaks on the trail when you’re having a little too much fun.
Unlike most cars, Jeep drivers understand their ride will never be the same as it was sitting new on the showroom floor. It gets those “character marks” from rocks, trees, and whatever else we can figure to put it through, over, or into. Jeep Waves are no exception, they only get better with time.
How has “Wabi-sabi” affected your Jeep?
