Full coverage on the Fusion because it's financed, liability on the rest, because all of that's worth very little. As undersigned drivers on my grandma's policy, my dad and I are able to get by. (We all live in the same house)

In Texas, there's like 36% uninsured, and a really high accident rate, with a ridiculously high fatality rate, so insurance is super expensive down here.

By the by, any provider will do full coverage on just about anything down here, regardless of age. Just, older vehicles will likely be totaled by insurance, instead of repaired. Once a car's 25, though, it qualifies for classic insurance, though most classic insurers won't cover a car that's under 4 grand.

You know you drive a ZJ when you're filling out information on it to get an insurance quote and you waffle around on the "is the vehicle modified" checkbox, because you're not sure if a budget boost really counts.
I grew up in New Mexico, I feel ya on the insurance thing there. I lived Jus outside an Indian reservation so the uninsured is high as hell too! Uninsured motorist is required by law!

And a BB don't count, its more like an option.....its "oversized offroad tires!" When your on Kbb!

You are aware uninsured motorist is if you let an uninsured motorist drive your vehicle and they have an accident? Ask me how I know. Found out the hard way. Lol. I got hit by an unisured motorist.

Out there was to cover you from an uninsured motorist, as long as you have permission to drive someone's car their insurance will cover you. You don't need to be on a policy.

N.M. is all kinds of whack.

That is, unless said uninsured person lives in your household.

Here in utah the law requires the car itself to be insured. Not the driver of the car. Here uninsured coverage most definately protects you if an uninsured driver hits you (also found out from experience)

Here in Texas the car and the driver both have to be covered. That is, if you have 3 drivers and one car, your policy is higher than 1 driver, one car, but if you have 1 driver and 3 cars, the policy is, again, higher. So imagine 3 drivers, 4 cars. Plus Texas' premiums.

And it's strange that it should be that way. I can only drive one car at a time, and I'm paying for insurance; you'd think the insurance would follow me, but no, it only counts for cars I've insured, and only if one of the insured drivers on the policy is driving it. It's a damn conspiracy.

Here in Montana... We have no insurance laws. We don't even have running water, indoor plumbing, or that new-fangled electricity stuff I hear tell of! I don't even understand what I'm doing with this black box thingy!

in MD, each vehicle has to be insured. and in order for someone to "legally" drive the vehicle, the insurance company has to be notified that said person is driving that vehicle. not really enforced though lol

You know you drive a ZJ when you can't afford to do anything but compare your state's insurance laws with others.

Hey, I bought a 3/4" & 13/16" 1/2" drive sockets & a 5" 1/2" drive extension Wednesday night. Now I just have to find my torque wrench again so I can re-torque my lug nuts....

Was only $15 at Northern Tool though. And its right in the middle of my "pay days". I get my pay stub on Wednesdays but my direct deposit doesn't go through until Thursdays.

You know you drive a ZJ when you imagine all the stuff you're gonna do to it when money comes around, to keep you from setting yourself on fire working on your other car, stuck between that car and teh ZJ.

Changed the 240's fuel injectors today. That car runs so much better now, but it was a pain changing them because the 240 sits behind the ZJ on my driveway. Two cars in a row does not a lot of room make.
