You carry an extra gallon of water around, and it's not for the engine or you. But instead it's because you know your front brakes will seize again and this time you want to be ready.

I got a 91 and it's got a clock and the lights behind the wheel. I just assumed it was stock. Huh, Go figure it's a jeep thing...

When you spend 2 weeks researching the best way to fix your jeep and the best parts available to do the job right. Only to be told by a Hundai mechanic that you are wrong.... I guess in Korea jeeps are built differently.

Wave as you pass me :D

The problems of owning 2 Jeeps ... I never know which one to work on or which YJ gets the next mod ...

Educate me, good sir...

Where does one acquire such awesomeness in the form of an altitude meter... and does it work? If not, how does said person get it to work?

it's a novelty clock sold to aircraft nuts (they're kind of like Jeep nuts with bigger wallets). But it looked cool. I would like to get a 50s vintage Heuer rally timer, but they are a bit too pricey.

Real altimeters are available (http://www.chiefaircraft.com/aircraf...ltimeters.html) but it's a lot cheaper to get a Casio multifunction watch.

I thought it was common knowledge, you don't buy a YJ because you're broke... You go broke because you bought a YJ!

You know you drive a YJ when your wife starts referring to your Jeep as her sister-wife (because you spend so much time with it).

this is gonna be a long one, but im just outlining my thoughts as they happened today..

you know you drive a yj when you go to your grandmas house where you keep your rx7 because you cant afford to insure a jeep and another car. it was your first 'dream car', and you ACTUALLY found one and bought it! and you were soo happy, and you still love it to death. and while you sit in it, letting it warm up, you remember how much you miss seeing 90 mph, let alone freakin, 62 mph in the yj? haha. but as you sit in your damn drift machine, hearing that rotary engine idling away as strong as it ever did, you think about that time when you rode in your friends jeep for the first time, and loved it! you think about that time when your brain said (verbatim) "damnit ive always wanted one, F*CK it, im finding one!" then you start thinking about that first time you took your yj out and were so suprised at how well it performed crawling down the trail you used to walk to the party spot by the river. your nonjeeper friends mention the 45 degree hills, little piles of rocks, and the 'fact' that its not safe. the 'fact' that youre gonna roll over. then you laugh and remember their shocked, jealous faces when you were driving IN the river, with a stock jeep (and another stocker was with you having a blast as well) you sigh, you smile ..and then you get out of one moneypit, into another, and drive your topless, doorless jeep home. and you smile the WHOLE time

I know the feeling. I too have the same issue, but when you take your non-wheelin' friends out on a trail, topless and doorless and everything gets muddy, but the whites of both your smiles, you know why you own a YJ!
