Ykydayjw bragging about how reliable your yj has been( of course after a plethora of minor repairs) to your date, you get back into it after a movie, and it makes a strange grinding and hissing sound when you turn it over. It's never made that sound until now!

When you take the seats out to wash the mud out of the inside and see so many stress cracks its amazing the seat didn't go through the floor

You're driving down the freeway with your head hanging out the window trying to see if your tires are balanced.

When the aftermarket alarm wiring PO decided to install is hanging in a mess in front of your break pedal, and you are afraid there is not enough booze in the world to get you through that mess.

You figure a bikini top and windjammer will be enough to keep the water out in a thunder storm just to turn a corner and have a waterfall come between the door and the roll bar and soak you
