You know you dive a YJ when you go to put your seat belt on only to realize the whole assembly pulled out of the pillar.

Also when somebody says that's a nice gear whine from your 350 but it's really the BA10/5 behind your 258.

I must Concur. I must also say its a little nerve racking knowing how easy a door can be taken if you forget to lock up.

You know you drive a YJ when....

Your kids riding in the back seat and want to wear a helmut to keep from knocking their heads on the roll bar supports.

HAH! So true.!

Thanks for your service!


You know you drive a Yj because it always breaks when you're broke.

you say "i wish i had your rig" but deep down inside you know you wouldn't trade your rig for anything, and if you do you immediately regret it.
