When you try to get other ZJ's for less than $800, but wouldnt sell yours for a ridiculous price like that...

When you're looking at moving from an apt. to a house and the thing you're most excited about is building a garage so you can work on the zj!

On topic - When you can set the clock on your radio faster than anyone you know, without looking, while driving, in mall traffic.
Mine has been doing this too, what a pain in the ***!!! I just tightened the battery leads and she started, but still, so inconvenient...

when I can load up the zj with all my gear, hit the road and set the cruise control, while my other buddies have to trailer their jeeps. turn off the pavement, let some air out of the tires and crawl up sweet trails with air conditioning in the summer and heat in the winter. arrive at destination for the night and do it all again in the morning. When finished trail riding put some air back in the ol tires and head home. Not saying that my zj hasn't had a plethora of problems and headaches, but in the end I love the ol girl like a love a good dog, even tho the dog pisses on the carpet sometimes, as long as I treat it right its always there and down for good times

HAHAHAHAHAHA that made me laugh. So true though... Mine's kind of like a dog from a shelter... Got her and she's not always been taken care of that great, so she still acts up sometimes, but with some love and time, she'll be much better

When your girlfriend wakes you up and says you were yelling something about "Check Gauges" in your sleep.

When the Wrangler guys hate on you for being able to carry five passengers, a week's worth of clothes, a tent, a cooler, all your tools, spare parts, and a couple 12-packs into the woods, and still look good doing it.

When you get into a fistfight with someone while trying to explain that their Explorer is a contemporary of - but not a competitor to - the ZJ. Yes, I actually did this. And I think I won, or that 12-pack told me so...

When your horn stops working three weeks ago and today it miraculously works again but now you're rear lamp is out because of those ****ty sockets wiggling every time you close the hatch.
