YKYDAZJ when you start to think something is wrong when you have a cheap and easy repair followed by a mod that worked right the first time in the same day. I'm gonna get spoiled if it keeps this up lol

I have a girlfriend and two vehicles... And no job.... You could say I'm broke

All I need in life is my Jeep, my guns, and my wrenches... And maybe some fine women too

Got a wife, a kid, a house, my ZJ, my car, my wife's car, all the bills associated with home ownership, and student loans. I'm lucky I have enough left over to save for retirement. I can't wait to see what it's going to cost to put my daughter through college.

Yup, two money hungry vehicles, 3 credit cards, home, insurance, kids, wife, I haven't known what money is for years now
Ahh, adulthood. Why didn't those evil people tell us it would be so sucky, that way we could stay five yrs old

At 5 years old, you can't drive. I'd say the optimal age is between 17 and 20. I don't drink much, or hardly ever to be honest, so 21 isn't that big of a deal to me. Between the ages of 17 and 20, if you were a good kid, most of the time you can still live off your parents, drive, and go out and pretty much do what you want. At 17, you get away with a lot because most things are expunged from your record once you turn 18. Something kind of hit me at the age of 22, whatever it may have been is unknown, that caused me to mature exponentially since then. At 27, I'm more mature than most of the people I work with and associate with between the ages of 30 and 50. I do agree though, some aspects of being an adult suck. I wouldn't trade my life for anything else though. I'm happy where I'm at. I'm the only "settled" 27-year-old I know.

aint that the truth. The family drives me nutzo, bills kill my dreams bit by bit some months, and I wish I could find my deserted tropical island someplace and live away from human existence, but I don't think I'd trade anything.
Good point, EJ, 17 is that perfect age lol. I know how you feel. Had to mature and real quick when I was 16 so now I'm 23, and I'm more mature than most everyone I see here, even most people double my age, sadly..

On topic of thread, you know you drive a ZJ when you don't cringe about going over speed bump tables, unlike cars having to come to a dead stop on both ends

Honestly, it sucks.. Right now, I get the typical "you're just a kid, what do you know" kind of attitude.. In 20 yrs from now, I'll be begging for those troubles again probably..
