...when you're driving home from work, blasting the stereo, and "Gasolina" by Daddy Yankee comes on, and you think to yourself, "Damn, this song is strangely appropriate for a Jeep."

I don't know if this one is on here yet,t-

You know you drive a YJ when you can recognize another set of square headlights coming the opposite direction a mile away

This is sooo true.
On my way home from work of a morning I can recognize a YJ about 1/4 mile in the distance.

dude i need one. my horn is GAY! its not even stock i think. the PO put it on. when i drive and someone cuts out in front of me. i dont even honk. even when it says "honk for huskies"(my skool mascot.) on a car.... well one day at skool i honked the horn just a bit to show my friend how gay my horn was. then all of a sudden. like a mob of girls came running to the jeep just to honk it.

You Know You Drive a Yj.. when someone honks urs horn too much.. so u just pop the horn button off and they said... wat the hell? and ur like....yes i can do that.

Now im tryin to decide if i want to change the horn. its a chick magnet. literally. haha.

Hey man your floors are going to fall out (if they haven't already) because the carpeting sucks up water like a sponge. Just keep an eye on that and make sure to dry it out.

Yeah I have the same deal, except the PO installed an ahooga horn in mine. It sucked whenever I had to use it if I got cut off because "AHOOGA" just isn't angry. I have installed air horns in addition.

I on the other hand have an awesome horn: a set of Wolo direct drive air horns and a high/low pair of vintage Cadillac horns.

You know you drive a YJ when a woman on her cell phone, driving in the left lane in a FWD SUV-thing will merge into your lane, without signaling or consulting her mirrors, with you next to her (not in her blind spot, BTW). You try honking your horn only to realize that the horn has not worked, and will not work until you can afford a REAL horn. You are being tailgated all this time by an angry man in a minivan, also on the phone, who is not paying attention. You cannot slow down, you cannot honk, you certainly can't outrun the SUV-thing or the minivan. You can't even get out of your own way. SO, in weighing your options, you realize that the safest thing to do is get your timing right, jump a curb and stop in someone's lawn. Just as you are about to make this fun fantasy become a reality, the woman in the SUV-esque vehicle realizes that she was about to merge into the side of your steel-and-canvas deathtrap, swerves back into her lane, and slows down so she can start flipping you off and screaming, as if my lack of horn somehow caused her to nearly merge into the side of my vehicle while talking on her cell phone (illegal in my county) while changing lanes without signaling. She then manages to get next to you at the next stop light, and rolls down her window to yell some more, at which point the police officer -who was 2 cars behind you during this escapade- arrives and pulls her over, citing her for the aforementioned moving violations, as well as failure to wear a seatbelt. Yeah, and I thought my Jeep was a deathtrap. It's only as safe as the person behind the wheel wants it to be.

BTW, that actually happened yesterday while I was on my way to work. I need to get my horn fixed. I never realized that the horn is the most vital piece of safety equipment on my Jeep. With the ratings the IIHS gave this thing back in '87, I need all the safety features I can get.
