I usually get some respect from other Jeepers, even lifted TJs and JKs. I try to throw up the wave to every lifted Jeep I see. I don't wave to every Jeep simply because there are too many that are driven by people who don't use them recreationally and don't care about other Jeeps, if they even notice them.

Living in nd I wave to everyone. Mainly because I can drive 70 miles to Fargo and meet 6 cars, and know half of them lol. I know the motorcycle wave of pointing at the ground beside you, but what's the jeep wave? It should be holding up my leatherman lol.

Whenever you park it, it leaks oil and when you check the oil it's still full.

when you see a spot on the ground wherever you park and worry that there is a leak every time.

Ha! That's me! I was out of town a couple weeks ago and someone parked in my spot at work and at my apt and left a small spot of oil. I was sure mine was leaking something again! Nope, still (mostly) dry. It has just started seeping oil from the head gasket on the passenger side though...

When you know your overall mechanical skills and knowledge have easily tripled since the time you bought your ZJ.

Your right turn single works perfectly, but your left turn single works on it's own terms...

when you get into a new car and it has so many power and computer assistance systems you actually drive it worse than your analog 17 year old ZJ.
