you know you drive a YJ when, going to school you use your DD and all along the way you wish you were driving your YJ, until you remember you can go in the left lane and actually hit 80mph, and your happy. then you see another jeep topless and wish you had your YJ, you dont care about the left lane 80mph.

happend today, it is about 55 outside, still would rather drive the YJ

[QUOTE=94yjsahara;12173917]when people trying to lift the passenger seat to get in the back always hit the seat tilt lever first.


when your sideview mirrors have to be straightened almost before every drive

when you constantly get fingered by the low ricers in front of you at the stoplight thinking you are highbeaming them, laugh, then actually high beam them

when your tires squeal going around most corners and u-turns sound like you're being very aggresive but really are not

When the UPS driver pulls up and is on a first name basis. Then your wife says "What are changing now, You said it was just Right".

Happened to me a few days ago. Got pulled over for a rolling stop. The officer asked if I knew why he pulled me over. I told him that I rolled through the down hill stop sign because it was easier than coming to a complete stop and shifting into first. He laughed and let me go with a warning.

when the only thing stopping that sucker on 33s is the 2 front brakes so you have to start braking the length of a football field so it will not roll pass the stop light/sign. found out 3wks ago i had no back brakes since i had it.need to fix that asap

When your at the dmv and trying to renew your license plate sticker and they ask for an odometer reading and you say oh that? And your reply is do you really need that it hasn't worked in months? ? And the lady just shakes her head and says just guess please.

When you find out who owns the yellow TJ at your high school.
At traffic light.
Me: You're the one that drives that?
Yellow TJ: You drive that? What is it? (Looks at side of my jeep and sees the Sahara sticker) A Sahara, thats a piece of crap!
Me: He doesn't know about the YJ magic.

I'm thinking:
1. You don't carburetor.
2. My engine is bigger.
3. My engine sounds like a diesel.
4. Upon start up you don't have a small black cloud shoot out the exhaust.
5. You don't take yours off road.
6. You have a smooth ride.
7. For some reason my stock 89 rides higher than your TJ.
8. Your in a TJ Sport.
9. When all clean my YJ looks so much better than your TJ.
10. Do you even know what a TJ is?

11. The guy in the west bound turn lane WAVED at ME because he did not see you.
