When your wife bought a YJ(because she's always wanted a Wrangler) and wants you to take her wheeling in it.

So you take her for some very light wheeling in it and after 10 minutes you look over and she's holding her 38 DDs in place by crossing her arms.

You look at her(and play dumb) and say "What's the matter?"
...and she replies "Turn around. My boobs are killing me already! This thing's going to be a mall crawler. If we're going wheeling, it's gonna be in Weezy(my ZJ)!!!"

Once we hit the pavement again, she finally released her boobs' death-grip, and said "OMFG, I'm buying a 'Mall Rated' sticker for this thing as soon as we get home!"

And all you can do is grin while you are driving back home in her "Stagecoach"(my nickname for it, 'cause it sure rides like one.... ), and think about how she just slammed the rig she's wanted all her life, AND, complimented YOUR rig, all in the same breath.

OMG, I love my ZJ!!!!

Side note: Wheeling in a super short wheel base with a 5 speed SUCKS, BTW...

When you want more power from your 4.0 and many TJ/YJ owners would love this kind of torque. (lol, 2.5)

When you drive your jeep back INTO alignment

Kid you not, had mild wheel wobble around 45 when I started my 600-odd mile trip, then getting off the interstate at our destination, the speed limit was 45. No shakes. Checked my alignment when we stopped, and it was as close to perfect as I could humanly measure I love my ZJ!

I did and deleted my post out of respect for the mods and the forum in general.

Done this, drove into a mud pit, come out with my steering wheel bent sideways. Go through another one a few days later, it goes straigt.

So today, I realized something that blew my mind. Jeep Patriots are real jeeps! they have similar ground clearance to our Grands when they're stock!
Grand Cherokee ground clearance: 8.2 in.
Jeep Patriot ground clearance: 8.1 in.

My hope in Jeep has been restored.

OT. When you avoid driving your zj, as much as you possibly can. 'Cause it made you a poor person and you can't afford to drive it.

Well I'll be damned. Now I feel a little better about considering one. They still just look so squatty and close to the ground...
