You know every bolt, it's size and difficulty to get out.

Your co workers and family aren't surprized anymore when you swap axles, engines or transmission on a sunny afternoon.

Your mod timelines for things are measured in beer. "This is a 3 beer job, that is a 12 pack job"....

You refuse to take money for helping another YJer, stating, "I won't take money, but will shake your hand".

When you take the family daily driver car on a rainy day, you keep flipping high-beam instead of the wiper (happen to me when i take my wife's Toyota)

when you take the family car you constantly reach for an invisible clutch pedal

When you have to give a co-worker a ride because her Chevy is in the shop and she complains after getting her car back that she still waves to Jeeps out of habit but now they just look at her funny

*True Story*

When the wife who once said "do you really think you need to buy that Jeep?" ends up driving it more than you do.
(yet another true story)

your girlfriend starts supprising you with her problem solving ability, when you both work on the heep.


Your girlfriend says with a smile (and I quote) "shouldn't you be working on the hubs?"
The perfect woman??? Why, yes she is!

you don't bother to pull over for a leak, you just whiz through the rust-hole in the floor pan.

All of the ones posted above are funny, but true.
Last 3 years, every birthday and Christmas, GF got me a Quadratec gift certificate. Gotta love a girl like that!

you find a a tube of "quick steel" wedged in between the seat and console and start to have nightmares of what the PO had used this for ...

later you find your seat frame is held in by it and your seat sliders are none existant due to rust ...

When you drive to work everything is great, but on the way home see your temperture gauge says you are overheating, so you pull over to check it out to only find the coolent has disappeared and your raditor is bone dry...

You get worried cause when you walk out of the auto parts store your Jeep isn't leaking anymore...

when you risk your life by waving to other jeeps, if you hit a bump with one hand on the wheel your going to crash and die

Three: A large beach towel serves as a blanket for the female passengers if they're cold riding in a door-less and window-less Jeep!
^^ So true...
