YKYDAZJW: you keep a bag of spare sensors in the back, just in case.

When you look at a picture like this and think "I could definitely have done that better". I should have been another 6 inches or so to the driver's side to not be as deep in the hole. Any further and I'd risk sliding down into it though. I think this might have been the spot where I was told my pass rear tire was 3 - 4 feet off the ground (and Jay tipped my Jeep upright with almost no effort as it was just balancing). That could have been another spot though, I can't tell from this angle.

You know you drive a ZJ when you check the temperature gauge more then the speedometer.

You know you drive a ZJ when you're supposed to be reading a book in class but you're actually reading the forum.

When your busting you tail at work and lose track of time due to daydreaming of the work you could be doing to her.

I'm on the same track. Unfortunately my oldest grew up with his mom and has no mechanical skills whatsoever, and drives a Smart. Oh, the shame.....

My youngest has finally started showing some interest in fixing stuff, he wants to get his hands on the welder again, he lives with his mom(ex #2) but I do get him every couple of weekends, so I get chances to do hands on stuff with him. He's grown in his masculinity over the summer(I get them, his twin sister too, for summer break) He's always been a small kid, but he can hop on the riding mower now, fire it up and take care of some of the grass, he's learned the different types of screwdrivers, and various other tools. I'm actually embarassed, because when I was his age I was familiar with every tool and piece of equipment my dad had, and could use it all.

You know you drive a ZJ when you toss the keys to your 12 year old and tell him to take it around the pasture, and worry more about damage to it, than your son.

He actually did pretty well, a couple more lessons and he could probably bring me home from the bar.......

Retreat? Hell, we just got here......

When you win a trip to the Marlboro Ranch in Montana but wish you could take your ZJ with you because they only have Hummers to drive.
