When you still dream about the problems and fun of your wrecked jeep and constantly tell everyone what your going to do with your next one even though its been over a year.

When you are uncomfortable riding in the passenger seat with someone because your used to always driving.

When you back down on a dare because "My jeep is too top heavy for that".

When your jeep never shakes when a chick is riding with you. And your so happy that it behaved that on the way home you drive stupid because your used to the shaking.
When you pass a cop with his lights on for some reason and before you realize why you run over the huge tree laying accross the road.

I can go on and on.


Not just shaking but making noises lol. My belt was giving me horrible noises but when i went to lunch with this chick from work it didnt make a single noise to lunch and back to work... Thank god lol

Right! Some guy was like what is this 6 years old? Hah try 15.

You know damn well you drive a jeep when someone says how clean it is and offers to buy it. All you can do is laugh and say " hell no!".

I smoke people in my 5.9 every chance I can, although I get more light to light action from the local soccer moms in X5's and ML500's trying to race ahead and cut me off than I do from the ricer kids, at least they're smart enough to realize the burble from the exhaust, hood vents and 5.9 badges = an *** whoopin!

When you pull over during a death wobble experience and the car behind you turns around to tell you that you have a serious issue and you tell them, trust me... i know...

(happened 2 days ago to me upon bringing newly lifted jeep home)

AH ALSO ANOTHER --

When you know you're about to get death wobble and start giggling at your friends faces when they think the Jeep is gonna explode. ROFL THEIR FACES... PRICELESS....

(also true story)
