When your spare bedroom looks like parts warehouse, and a library type location file seems like a good idea.

yeah, here the TJ/YJ guys wave, but none of the XJ guys do.

BOT:. When people stop at the gas station and ask you questions like "what lift is that". "did you install it"

When you get contradicting comments on it.
"Shes a beauty" and "Shes a beast". dont know how that works.

when a wrangler says your zj makes them look bad.

when you back in parking spots so you can look back at it as you walk away and smile

When your fuel pump dies, you just tell your wife that you will busy again this weekend
When you have used your Factory Service Manual so many times that the binder splits in half

When your girlfriends nick name your ZJ "The Cock Magnet" because there are always a bunch of dudes circle jerking around your lift and tires everywhere you go. True story about my last ZJ.
