When you bust another knuckle trying to get the damn windsheild torx bolts out and you do not hesitate to reach for your welder and tack a nut to it

You're driving down the highway and notice the velcro holding the passenger top half door is coming loose and the wind is threatening to pull it off the door. Get where you're going and re-attach it, on the way home the driver's side comes loose and you have to drive with one hand on the wheel and the other on the door flap.

Driving down a dirt road to check the condition of one of my favorite trails with my g/f, we saw that it looked reeeaaalll nice, and thought... "craig (1998 TJ) isn't working today, lets get dirty."

also. when I had my TJ a friend called from the same trail asking for a tug. When we got it to the dirt road we discovered he got stuck because his non existant manual driving skills and 33's smoked his clutch in the mud.

when you use your YJ instead of a wheelbarrow to do yard work

Put a tarp where the backseat was and filled it full of mulch (big yard + big hill = YJ fun)
