When you cruise in comfort?
When you drive up on a curb and open your cargo hatch and can't close it.

your girlfriend insists you don't drive a "real" jeep because it isn't a Wrangler.

You've gotten that quizzical look for:

Sinking money into a car with 200K on the odometer...

Insisting that the engine can make it to 300K...

Claiming your ZJ will be more off-road capable than so-and-so's FJ when your build is done...

When you automatically change the CPS when it decides not to start one morning before checking spark/fuel/etc and you have at least 2 spares with you at all times

When everyone else is sweating and complaining of the heat on a summer day on the trails and you are sitting in comfy AC

When you mark your territory by leaving tire marks pulling into your parking spot

...when you tell your wrangler buddy's that "I have the first 4link front and rear Jeep, and I have a v8"
