When instead of trimming the front bumper, it's easier to just keep it off. And IMO, looks better

When the most fun you've had in it is preceded by you screaming "I'm gonna die!"

Or when you enter a traffic circle or a bendy off ramp you scream "I'm gonna die!"

Or you see... Shut up Ian

Get the headliner WITHOUT the foam backing, over the curves and stuff on the headliner it'll wrinkle and look like poop, there's really no way to avoid it. Get just the material (no foam backer) and it stretches nicely and will look alot better

Ok, we were talking about those auto car washes with the rail that you aim your tire into and how cars sometimes get drug across them but Jeeps don't and this guy says,
"when I had my mini cooper the control arms used to drag on those sometimes."
And the response this guy posted was,
" I thought most girls tuck the strings."

Then the new starter you buy has a sticker with a no hammer sign on it. Been there

...When your hand brake doesn't work lol.

...When you replace wheel bearings more often then you replace tires.

...When you get into your ZJ, turn the key and EVERYTHING dies (no lights, radio, heat/ac, power anything, won't crank). You disconnect the battery and reconnect the battery and get back in the ZJ and everything works again so you try to start the engine again and it does yet it again. And again, and again, and again... Sooo... you end up taking your g/f's car.

Mines been doing this lately. New terminal leads, new battery, no corrosion on the leads. I literally just knock on the negative lead with my knuckle and she starts right up. Sucks resetting the radio pre-sets and clock, but at least it's getting rid of the CEL for me

On topic - When you can set the clock on your radio faster than anyone you know, without looking, while driving, in mall traffic.

ZJ's are nuts for proper grounds. It's the milk to the cereal.
