Interior Scenting

Do you guys use all the same kind of air fresheners, or do you mix and match? All of mine are Spring Breeze now but I am thinking of either something more edgy or mix-and-matching my own custom blend.

Usually after a trip to Taco Bell loading up on the bean burritos I can add enough of my own custom blended scent to discourage the FSJ groupies.
I assume that is what you are after.

Mine smells mosly of GoJo, WD-40, and grease right now. There is also an underlying hint of mold and mustiness. And sometimes burnt wires and over-rich exhaust.

I have a buddy at the Jeep dealer who managed to horde the new Jeep smell of various vintages over the years. Once a month he comes to the house and restores the 88 with the new car scent from an actual 1988 Grand Wagoneer! He has to be careful, he put 1986 smell in a 1989 and when the owner noticed the difference in the aroma, he went nuts! My buddy lost money on that job.

On the contrary! It shows that I am using it EXACTLY as it should be! The smell is guaranteed to raise ur testosterone!
besides, if the jeep didnt like the smell, it would stop needing so much work!

For "edgy" you can't beat the old school pine tree fresheners. Though a bit on the strong smell side they'll knock the edge off raccoon farts. Personally I use Dominican cigar smoke.

I prefer pipe tobacco, my good man. Plus, my Cherry Oak pipe has an intricate brass inlay of a TF727, which perfectly complements the frame of my monocle.

I've seen pictures of Vacaisle's interior. He just keeps pine tree branches and needles in there.

He gets the scent and looks outdoorsy at the same time.

"scent...or stench?" , It is all in the nose of the beholder.

my 77 had some unbelieveable old vinyl smell that was so much to my liking, I really had a problem selling the thing. I still talk to the current owner about it. It's like an olfactory pleasure dome in there.

That bacon guy would actually look really good in a '60s Wagoneer parked in front of some wacky place on Route 66. Very cool!

I would love to some day have my Jeep fixed up to the point of having to decide what kind of interior scent I'd like.

I fell asleep watching the matrix reloaded. What a dull movie. The 15 minute tribal, raver, sex, dance party scene is hilarious.

Anyways, I missed this. My secret is used mcdonalds napkins soaked in oil and old, wet packing blankets. I find that the smell of oil keeps me ready for whatever the next big disaster with the truck will be.
