When your wife trips over jeep parts in the kitchen. ( My hobby room is next to kitchen, RC cars, jeep storage, tools etc..)

True. After my accident, my daughter was unharmed(back seat) and I walked away with a mild concussion from hitting my head on the drivers window, and I had to shut the ZJ off, it was still running. We started it and drove it up onto the wrecker.
A week later I bought a 98.

When the courtesy inspection section of this is true of pretty much every ZJ ever:



(Also, I'm never taking her to a shop again. Sat around for 2 hours and all that got done was they found out exactly what I told them the problem was, and they wanted me to pay out my *** for a brake job with special order parts, when all it needs is new hardware and shoes for one of the parking brakes)

To the other discussion, my ZJ is a she. Can't go feeling intimate with a dude or saying "come on baby, hold together". Her name is Cheyenne and I love her.
I was thinking that. The vibration came back. It started when I swapped out my rims with the 235-75-15 for the ones that were on it(street tires), and went away for a while after my beach run But I know that the front end needs some work, hopefully I'll get to it soon, before I install the BB lift and 31's. Never had a DW before, my 97 was always rock solid.

when you don't have the radio on because you want to listen to music... you do it because you don't want to listen to your jeep's noises

When you can't bear the thought of having it towed or having someone else work on it
