He thinks he's too good to wave at a lifted grand Cherokee, yet no one blinks at lifted wranglers and I get 10+ verbal compliments every day, and probably 100 stares plus my v8 exhaust growl makes his sound like a kitten. So ya, I know I drive a zj when I feel like a boss no matter what fellow poser wrangler drivers think.
was driving my moms patriot earlier and saw a big lifted wrangler. i waved at him and he gave me the finger

In my experience, most think they are better than you. Not saying that's all of them. But it's pretty sad.

I used to wave at people in lifted Wranglers till one guy threw a drink at my zj and said something along the lines of "get a real Jeep". Bet he wasn't expecting me to chase his *** down and make him wash it all off either.
Aside from the other modded zj in town, I've been waved at two times. Once from a guy in a zebra painted cj and another from a rhino lined xj

Had one do something similar to me. He threw a beverage out the window and it cracked my windshield and an unmarked caught the entire thing and made him replace it.

A friend of mine with a lifted wrangler (the only one who's nice to me) told me once to get a real jeep. Anytime anyone says that I say real jeeps have v8s

When you know the difference between a VC and a VIC... and you know that both of yours are bad.

Your driveway has 3 different spots on it.

One from antifreeze, one oil, and youre not sure what the 3rd is.

Like that old joke: "You know what is the difference between good friend and a best friend? Good friend will bail you out of jail. Best friend will be sitting next to you in the cell laughing and saying THIS WAS AWESOME, DUDE!"
Well, ZJ is like best friend. Toyota land cruiser, might be your good friend, but ZJ will be your best friend. And what best friends do? They troll each other. So I'm ready for tons of trolling. I love my charger A LOT, but I don't want to do anything with it, I want to keep it as it is, all stock, everything. I am afraid what if I break something? But my ZJ made me want to start fixing it, make me want to get dirty, get tons of tools and parts and start spending weekends with it. Don't know how? Well get on it and do it! No other cars did this to me. ZJ has tons of charisma, but definitely a male. He is like your male friend you can do stuff with you'd never do around women
A friend will help you move.

A best friend will help you move...a body.

OT: you know you drive a zj when you get a $279 stock check from an old job and you immediately think "How many things can I fix on the Jeep with this?"

When you spend $255 to buy a number of sensors from Rockauto because you think that'll fix it. You hope desperately that'll fix it. You want nothing more than for that to fix it.

I would say attempting to diagnose the problem rather than throwing money at it is a better idea. My buddy spent $300+ on sensors trying to fix his and it's still got the same issues it had when he bought it.

When you have a 12x12 cardboard box full of used OEM "troubleshooting spares" all in the boxes for the replacement sensors.
