Others are scared to drive your jeep because of said quirks.

Your wife refuses to ride in it because she doesn't like the idea of tying a rope around her waist to raise up the stool she needs to get in with.

..You have like 5-7 keys in your car key ring instead of just one..

And if you borrow the car to your friend, you'll have to show where all those keys go.

.....you suddenly have some cash to spend so you go and test drive a 2005 Rubicon and aren't very impressed. So you decide instead to spend a few grand this summer truly building up your YJ to the way you've always wanted.

You cringe when you hear your son come in (the house) and ask, "Where's dad?" because you know the next thing will be:
Come listen to...
Come look at...
Its doing...

But really, this project jeep has been fun to work on...all 78 weekends and counting.

...5 seconds after leaving for work you let out a massive "DOH!" when you realize you forgot to pull the drain plugs the night before when it started raining.

When you are driving along in your beaten, battered, covered in mud YJ and see a yuppie in a new Range Rover, FJ, or Hummer and feel sorry for him.
