I'm going to do my diff fluids today as well as my front pinion seal. We're supposed to get dumped on with snow starting at about 1ish CST. I'm not looking forward to doing this today but if I don't do it today, I probably won't do it till the snow melts.

when you cant sleep the night before, then pull a 9hr shift, pick up a trailer and drive 3 hrs just to pick up your jeep cause you got a good deal.(total hrs without sleep: 40 looking at your jeep for the first time priceless)

when all you can think about at work the next week is how your father gets to put the axles on your jeep while you have to work

When you're planning out your spring 2012 to work on your ZJ and buying parts now with snow still on the ground. I've been making a list of friends I can ask if they wouldn't mind me using their driveway a couple weekends a month, I'll bring the beer .

When you know how to perfectly adjust the climate control in the dark because the dash lights have been burnt out forever.

And if you can actually talk to your wife about her shoes because you are so used to looking at her feet from under the jeep.

And if your kids taunt their friends by telling them that your jeep would smoke their parents camaro while still being able to go offroading.

If your kids like your zj because it is more comfortable than your lifted xj was.

If you were excited to get your 5.9 zj because it gets better gas mileage than your lifted xj did.

If you have to explain to anyone why you would want to replace your 249 with a 242 or 231, and all the different ways to do it.

When you have a pile of new parts for your 3 different Jeep models in the basement and have to keep running upstairs to get on the computer to find out which ones fit your ZJ.
