And another one, when you are arguing with one of your buddies about Jeeps vs. cars and you point out that back in WWII one solitary Jeep that was taken out for a joy ride caused the surrendering of an entire German Panzer division.
You know you own a YJ when a normal conversation sounds more like a yelling match.
Mine is not only soft top ... but full soft doors also. Soooo... after a hard or long rain I have to stand back when I open the doors for the splash of water being held by the lower seals from NONE of the top seals stopping anything.
.... you've got a natural heater from the holes in the shifter boots. This weekend scored one from ebay for cheap! Now finding time to install it
.... when a phone conversation requires stereo ear buds and holding the wired microphone cupped in my hand. Still not easy!
.... when you fall asleep under it from a long night of wrenching and welding. Wake up and it's turning daylight. True story in my driveway when I first got it. She was a total mess .. I was determined to get her driveable!!
I've sooo many cars, trucks, motorcycles and hot rods. This little YJ has turned into my favorite.
1991 Jeep Wrangler YJ, <-- My Jeep is a pickpocket!!
1984 Mustang GT Top 5-Speed <-- Running soon hopefully
2003 Honda Shadow Spirit 750, 1994 Suzuki Katana 600, 1980 Yamaha XS650 <-- Ripped apart and under the knife .. Chopped, bobbed & mono shocked. I got too many toy$$$!!!
When your gauges don't work, you just hit them. If that doesn't work you hit them harder, if that doesn't work you forget it, decide to fix it later, and then on your next drive just hit them again. Eventually, they work all on their own.
LMFAO!!! I'm a YJ and TJ owner. And I do this to both!
