Ha ha that is histarical! I remember on my 81 Camaro you had to open a little "door" on the back *** of the car which revealed the gas tank and the keyhole to open the trunk

You open the hood of your truck and hate how it wont open all the way and rest against the top of the windshield.

YJ You Know

You know you love the YJ when you see other YJs on the road early in the season with their doors and tops removed and it conjures up the thought that summer is almost here!!!

When you see another YJ with their top off in february, and use that as justification to your wife to remove yours. "But honey, the other YJ guys are doing it!"

And when you feel smugly superior (in your winter parka) to the TJ guys who are still using their heaters and tops.

Or when you have the windows off, but then you see a yj pass you with everything off and you have the feeling that you have been beaten.

Autozone knows you have a Jeep, so they call you for Ford parts interchange when the computers are down.

Your anti-theft is parking in 4-Lo so you can catch thieves on foot.

Tops don't last any longer than tires.

The road noise of your tires sets off car alarms.

Your friends started parking in their garages, because you are always eyeing parts.

You know what a bumperette is and don't like it one bit.

You are concerned because rising steel costs ups your "Jeep Payment"

You bought a torx tool that you attempted to use once, and now you'll never need it again. AND, now you're out of cutting wheels.

You've tried to figure out a cheaper way to get manual hubs on a D30.

You found the cheapest way was to put in a 44 or bigger.

You understand what flipping a D300 means.

You've had to choose between a cooler and a back seat.

Swaybars are optimal for weight reduction.

Taking every spare moment to check on her in the garage, you can't help but try those frozen bolts one more time...you don't even notice your dirty knees anymore...until you catch someone staring in the grocery store and you quickly try to wisk off the grime...

When every time you hear the sound of something hitting the road while driving, or someone running over something while you're driving, you have to make that mental inventory of everything in the car, every bolt that you "think" you tightened all the way, and every tool you "might" have left lodged somewhere in the undercarriage...

I can't drive home from work without whipping my head around trying to figure out what just fell out of, or off of, my jeep...
