That is the absolute truth! That and the need for goggles to work on anything when you are under it!

It's that stuff growing between your tub and your grounds.

True. I was talking to my mom who lives near Death Valley. I asked when she last saw a car rust, she can't remember. She still has a 79 Datsun, something that has been extinct for decades elsewhere.

You know you drive a YJ

When your mechanic says:
3 out of 6 pistons are not working
The motor mounts are wrong
The engine is hanging high
The brake lines are not attached properly

You start the engine and drive away and the jeep runs normal...

When you buy the darn thing and it sits in your driveway for a few years before you do anything to it...

You are half way through a trail and you realize you lost your wallet. Backtrack to the first obstacle only to find it laying in a puddle of water.

Stupid convenient cubby hole over in the passenger side dash. It's gotten me twice now. Someday I'll learn

The neighborhood kids ask for a ride, you get parents' buy in, make all the seatbelts work,strap them in. Drive at speed on PA's potholed/patched main roads to the playground's dirt parking lot and 'off road' there before turning around-the whole drive was 20 minutes. Back home the kids pile out laughing and shouting (cuz it was loud and the ears are still ringing) , "it was so bumpy and windy and my teeth are still rattling, but it was the BEST RIDE EVER! Can we go again?!"

Been using our YJ as my daily driver for about a week now. Had a big meeting with our company owner and our general manager today off site at a CEO meeting Club. One of those business meeting places that all the BMW and Benz drivers of the world use for CEO training and business luncheons.

I pull up to valet behind a bran new Mercedes 550. Almost every suit in the place seemed to turn and look as my dirty, Led Zeppelin blasting, yellow YJ pulls up an I climb out. Khakis and a polo shirt, laptop, an sunglasses. I proceed to explain the push button start and hidden kill switch to the valet slightly raising my voice over Black Dog as it echoed off the covered valet stab and the glass doors of the building.

As I turned to go in, I felt like Dale Jr in a Mountain Dew commercial. I open the door of the club and walk into about 11 suits. See my GM an head over. As I pass buy a guy in a very nice suit, he grabs my arm and says, "I love your jeep. Wish I still had mine." I thanked him introduced myself and it turns out he had a CJ back in the day. Now, he owns 7 Quiznos.
