My sister got a 93 on her ASVAB. I for one am incredibly glad that she went navy and fixes the missile systems rather than being some meat shield infantry.

I have an incredible amount of respect for every branch but I am definitely glad that I don't have a loved one in the marines.

Simular concept as a Navy bar, all over V.B., no lawsuits.

Do they kick out others?

The only real Military bar i've been in, he was Navy and welcomed all Vets.

OT: Got some oil and filter, change it out tomorrow in prep from topless day. CB should be here Friday, throw that on the night before!

Lawsuits? Not a chance but loss of respect and business from members of the other 4 branches of military? Absolutely possible, sure it's his business but it doesn't change the fact it's bad business practice.

How do you figure? Last I checked people are sue happy. Any type of possible discrimination now a days will get everyone butt hurt. Then again, that would depend on his discount being "policy," as in denying the discount because they were in the Army not USMC not just a "he mentioned he was in the marines, so was I so I threw him a discount" type of thing.

He isn't refusing service just doesn't offer a discount.

hence why I said refusing the discount to certain people, and not to others. Does he to Navy? Since the MC is part of the Navy.

Just throwin out a thought he COULD get sued....not saying he will. I rather not see him get sued, but people love to do it when they get the chance.

The term "Death Wobble" has become part of your vocabulary.

When you've slung mud accidentally peppering an open top 4x4 that's in range. (Bonus points if you you do this with an I6.)

When you wheel with other Jeeps that will break their stuff trying because it's not fair that your ZJ can get over an obstacle they have trouble with

****For long term lifted ZJ owners only**** others beware, you may find this OFFENSIVE!

When these 12 steps of lifting a ZJ make complete sense to you:
1. Install BB or F>R Swap
2. Get bigger tires
3. Spend more money solving rubbing, alignment, axle centering and wobble issues than you did on the lift originally
4. Give in to realizing that all the guys here were telling you the truth to the best of their ability and experience
5. Buy a real lift - but now you're spending "wiser" so you know that magically you'll get to 6" (who needs extended brakelines anyway?)
6. Repeat step #3, 4 and 5 until you give up on something lower or buy/ build what you need for 6"+
7. Buy more tires as you need them by now
8. Discover you do need a HPD30 and 8.8 (this can actually happen at any time along the way - even on pavement)
9. Deal with all the broken parts, modifications or upgrades you may need
10. Finally celebrate knowing you did things your way, ignoring all the priceless advice you got along the way
11. Pay off the thousands you owe for taking the cheap lift path only to find it really did cost more than doing it right the first time
12a. Boost your ego throwing out insults knowing that you skipped many of these steps, or went through #6 only once
12b. Sit on here laughing, commenting and poking fun at other guys as they make the same friggin mistakes your dumb a$$ did along the way - at least now you know better

You know you drive a zj when you notice every zj you pass. And when you notice a zj in the car lot down the road from your work you stop to check it out even tho you know your not gonna buy it.

When you know exactly how many there are in the school parking lot (2 a white one and a green one) and then you see one on big chrome rims and you shake your head and say why would he do that to a jeep
