When your friends all fight each other to see who gets to ride in the Jeep. And you're sitting there thinking... "You know... I could have 3 reliable running cars right now if I play my cards right..." haha, naw, just kidding. 2 civics and an exploder ain't worth all the money and blood and cussing I put into this thing.

You hear about a Jeep for sale. You hear it's really nice. You hear it's $1000 and you start drooling. You hear it has more than $1000 worth of winch on it and your heart starts beating faster.

...then you hear it's a Cherokee.

When you are so used to repairs being so difficult that brute force is needed, that it escapes you that sometimes all you need to do is put down the wrench and spray some lube, and you problem magically fixes itself...

When you realize that all manuals neglect to mention the most important part of a repair... The Blood Sacrifice.

No need. The blood draws itself through battered fingers.

The very first repair I did was my clutch. Busted my knuckles twice n while taking off the flywheel bolts the socket slipped and the breaker bar busted me right in the nose. That was quite the rush. I should have taken that as a sign... To wear a full face helmet when working in it.

Sent from my phone because I'm doing something "more important"

-Mag mini flashlights hidden around the cabin act as primary lighting
-Parts drop off while driving, horrifying passengers, while you just shrug and go "eh"
-Everyone else calls your rig "rusty" - you see rust as "patina"

For whatever reason, I had about 4 bolts, some washers, and some nuts rolling around the pan of our YJ. I think they were extras from the rock slider project. I didn't think much of it until a coworker jumped in the back seat as 3 of us went to lunch. He yelled over the wind and rattle, "what are these for" with a look of concern. I replied, "seat belts" then laughed as he tugged at the belt to ensure it was connected.

Just learned another one, when you discover that rolling down the window on your driver's side full door causes it to pull the door bar and open the door... When you are getting on the interstate. Gotta say love my YJ, but oh do I hate the doors. If it wasn't for the fact that that is where the JP logo goes they would NOT be going back on.
