Never owned a TJ have you ? Mine had an AC that would freeze your face off, and a heater piped in straight from the pits of hell. I wish my ZJ had half the heater my TJ did.

Then I just fix my ZJ and wait until the next chance to go play.

so true. With the top and doors off and my tj heater blasting dragons breathe from the floor, I'd stay pretty toasty. Now with the soft top on it was just unbearable haha. My zjs is nothing my tjs was.

The sad thing though is that most ZJ people don't have a clue about the wave or anything of that sort. Only twice have I ever gotten the wave from another ZJ driver

I'm going to reward myself with a new vehicle when I get a new job with my newly earned BS in EET. The JKU is the way I'm leaning.

you know you drive a ZJ when you are pround not to be (just another) wrangler on the road. there are so many... it gets obnoxious after a while. dont get me wrong they are awesome jeeps! but not the only ones that exist. thats why i took my badgeing off just to mess with people.... "thats not a jeep! is it?"

I think people make too much of a competition of it. I look at it like this. If it's a Jeep product, and we meet on the road, if you're taller I wave first, if I'm taller I expect you to wave first. Chain of command here people. I was the same way with my Rubicon. I waved at anything Jeep most of the time, especially if it was taller than mine. The aforementioned rules can be skued a little if the lower vehicle has a winch on the front. As I proved again this weekend, winch's can be priceless........and my brother said his LJ had never been stuck hehehe
