While in the woods you can feel your floor rise and fall as the branches and bushes push it up.

you stand in your driveway, look past your gleaming red 2009 sports sedan and admire your 14 year old YJ covered in 2 inches of mud and get that "warm feelin inside"

Stripped torx

You derive some sort of warped pleasure when you see the deep pangs of anxiety rushing through every fiber of your buddy's being when he strips his first torx bolt(s).

Because deep down inside, you know it's the perfect time for you to show off your skills at quickly and easily removing all kinds of stripped/broken internal torx bolts. So, when he turns to you and enthusiastically exclaims "U `da MAN!" you know, beyond any shadow of a doubt, you've become a real YJ owner.

P.S. The coolest part is knowing he'll be the one buying the brews for the next work project.

your re-enlisting in the army for 6 more years so you can use the bonus money to pay off its debt and continue on with the rest of its repairs and "enhancements"


also, (to thoes of you in the military) you can't wait to go home on leave to drive your jeep


p.s. to all you yj owners, enjoy your wheeling extra for me. I'm in Iraq for the next 7-8 months, and miss my jeep dearly...

when you sit in a parking lot and look at all the cars and think "yeah, i can take the axle from that one, the steering box from this one here, prob the leaf springs from the other one...."

my dad just laughs at me when i start saying it out loud

When you go to make a simple repair like changing the fuel filter and need both standard and metric wrenches.

when you've had 2 months of constant expensive problems, then the piece of **** AX5 starts heading south to imminent rebuild or junk.

You know you own a YJ when:

Random electrical stuff like the radio, parking brake light, and blinker arrows quit working for no apparent reason, then start working again days later also for no apparent reason. And you're just exited that they're working again....

The sound of any random car horn makes you wonder if it's meant for you and if it means that something has fallen off in the road... but you just keep driving....

You get really disgruntled on the highway when someone cuts you off, not because they might have caused an accident, but because you finally got up to speed....
