When you upgrade the suspension and need to grind every bolt off and use a torch for almost everything. made 5 trips to lowes for nuts and bolts/grinding wheels

Lowe's = BIG MONEY and

Next time look up your local bolt/ nut company. You can always find stuff that's stronger, cheaper and actually made here in the USA. With these three reasons, I'll never buy hardware at HD or Lowe's again unless it's an absolute emergency. Sorry to inform you that most of their grade 8 hardware is overseas garbage anyway.

Sorry that came off wrong. Not trying to dog ya, just trying to help from making the same mistake I did. When I first upgraded my control arms, I ended up using hardware from Lowe's and Home Depot. One of the LCA bolts snapped right as I arrived at hidden falls. Lucky for me, I was carrying the old spares and tools so I was able to fix it on the spot and not have my weekend of wheeling ruined.

Back on topic:

When you don't even consider the fact that every ZJ you buy has a sagging headliner.

When your jeep is parked due to a list of repairs before you can drive it again. I kept ignoring things and it all piled up and bit me in the a**.

Congratulations everyone, in a little over 3 MONTHS, this thread is the no 1 non-sticky thread in post count on the ZJ forum, beating the previous count of 1,616.

The previous champion took 3 YEARS to reach its peak before being locked!

Just thought this was interesting

When there are so many quirks and interesting things about your vehicle, you never run out of stories to put in this thread.

yep my 1992 lebaron convertible ate through 3 before i sold it (at 193k)
my dads sebring on the other hand. in 60k of ownership has eaten an engine, 5 sets of tie rods. 4-5 brake calipers, a upper ball joint (broke and the wheel fell off) and something else i'm sure i've forgotten

and to keep on track. (true story lol)
when you roll up to an intersection with another ZJ to your left and another on the opposite side topped off with an XJ in front of you, as a friendly reminder they made billions of them and they never die (really i never noticed until now that i have one they're EVERYWHERE)

When your neighbor who never talks to you walks up, after getting his mail, at 8:30pm, as you're getting out of it, and says "I like your Jeep" and he's a tad jealous, despite having a much newer model.

When you swear you aren't going to spend another dime in it unless something breaks, then you buy a new lift kit and 33s.

when its 12:50 am and you just finished cleaning the ENTIRE jeep. outside, inside vac. windows, all the plastics- everything. mainly because it was a hot mess from the previous owner and i an a touch insane and must have clean cars.
like i told my neighbor who was watching me (for some reason) a clean jeep is a happy jeep, unless its muddy.
