When you start banging your head against the steering wheel cuz she doesn't want to start. Give it a min. Talking sweet to her then shazam she starts right up.

when you know you have to swap your AT's onto the replacement that has normal street tires, after you find yourself in a tire smoking drift, in a corner you used to be able to take at higher speed with no issue......
Looked cool though....... :-)

Can a bald tire make a jeep shake like a poodle trying to **** a peach pit?

Money doesn't buy happiness, but it buys a Jeep. And I ain't ever seen a sad person in a Jeep!!

Two trips from Virginia to Pennsylvania they borrowed it for the, "room it has," aside from using their newer vehicles or a rental, my butt was puckered both trips thinking of the worst.

1996 ZJ - That 2nd Oxygen sensor, yeah some serious butt connectors and heat shrink there, how is that for off road modification! - Still stock.

Lmao my moms the same! Ill warn her of a new noise and not to worry and she just says ya I know, you will fix it NEXT weekend. My mother in law drove my pickup once and was freaked out and added no wonder you never have money with that gas milage! I hide stuff from my step dad though cause he will make me fix it before I leave his house. Then I owe him for the parts, when it was supposed to be a five min stop.

Edit: mother in law also thinks I can fix anything on her car because I have two ZJs in the driveway. Lol
