not sure if this ones been covered but.... when you hear all the vic horror stories and and smile because you kept the handy storage spot instead(which btw is my personal favorite feature that they put in 2wd models) when doing the 4wd conversion. Im so glad I decided to leave it instead of pulling a vic from the jy like I was going to.

When the jeeps not register, your license is suspended, it's not even at your house, and you continue to order parts for it

When you cash out your wifes 401k to get bumpers, LA suspension, roof rack with tire carrier, and so on after months of convincing her we NEED them. $'s on the way, but won't last long I'm sure.

I've gotta show her this so she knows I'm not the only one. I'll keep the jeep forever, but I may have to live in it when it's time to retire. Well worth it IMO.

How about you keep asking the secretary at your work to trade her niner for your 98 5.2 lmtd cuz she doesnt even realize what shes driving. I love my black jeep but i think i could give it up for a platinum niner!

OT: when you think your jeep feels fast, then your friends dad takes you for a ride in his 07 wk SRT8. my ZJ feels like it has the power of a honda now

And then you go 192 mph on a brand new CBR 1000rr and realize that going "fast" in a Jeep is just stupid.

I'd rather have the srt because at least in that you have a better chance of surviving a crash
