Realized a few more:

-When you realize just how scary 75 is when you have the top off compared to top on (gotta love the i6)
-When you accidentally fix the issue that has been bothering you for a week or so, only because a new problem popped up
-When you are convinced that there is no punishment severe enough for the person who decided on how to attach the plastic flares
-When you start buying enough tools that a few companies managers are going to have a really nice Christmas
-When you nearly **** yourself when TWO (I repeat TWO) JK drivers wave on one drive

This one just happened to me... When your Jeep is vain and if you, her owner and driver, say anything bad about any part of her, Torx included, she shows you just how vindictive she can be by turning off in the middle of the street as you stop for a stoplight. F****** Jeep.

When your driving on your 40 mile commute to work at 3:50am when all of a sudden your driveshaft explodes underneath you leaving you stranded in middle of nowhere on side of hwy. Not the best pic, but ujoints failed resulting one of the yoke fasteners to break off into yoke.

When you have a perfectly good 4.0 and you swap it out for a 302 and have nothing but problems and leaks from the moment you start it.

When you have this flex with a solid rear without any suspension. And you have a custom built 4 link front and rear.

You know you drive a YJ when you're exploring and decide to hit small trees rather than backing up and going around them.

Ouch. That's more for "you know you give jeepers a bad name when…"

On topic, you know you drive a awesome yj when you are about to poop yourself on the way home and can do 80-85 with out a problem. God I love my yj. My tj which also had 4" lift and 33s was scary over 60-65.
