You spend more time researching and repairing the YJ then driving it.

It’s raining out and you casually look over to the passenger with a grin and put the one and only hat you have on in the Jeep.

Your tools are worth more than your Jeep.

You mod it ...because you can.

You can drop the windshield and do just for the bug… cool factor.

You can hit things with your jeep and not cause any damage to the jeep but plenty to the things you hit.

You worry about smaller cars pulling in front of you because you know you have to run them over centered so as not to flip.

Smaller cars on the street are another reason for not running a sway bar.

...when the puddles are larger inside your vehicle than the street.

...when like a sniper, you have to adjust for windage while driving.

...when you're not bias 'cause you've got something from just about every automaker on the jeep somewhere.

...when you've never had to do a 3 point turnaround.

...when you can get something out of the back without turning around in your seat.

You no longer see piles of rocks, dirt or any substances on the side of the road that you dont think of as a challange to ride over.

I LOVE MY YJ
You know you drive a yj when...

You have discovered you don't need a top, just a variety of hats.

You never have to drive on group outings because it's too windy/noisy/bumpy/exhausty.

Your true gas mileage is a closely guarded secret-- especially from your wife and/or girlfriend.

You can't explain how you can have so much fun driving so very slow.

You have to explain to people that the bottle of windex and the squeegee is needed for the inside of the windshield not the outside.

click where it says "quote", in the lower right corner of the post U want to quote, then just add your comment.



You know your driving a YJ when...


U start a thread asking how to change the serpentine belt... then U get 20 different answers about how many bolts to loosen, and they're all different.
