You know you drive a zj when you dream that your check engine light comes on and you wake up and are relieved that it was just a dream

Not a Zj, but my dads dodge has been doing this thing where if you let off the gas at any speed, it shifts into first. I had a dream last night that I was driving it trying to diagnose it for him and it shifted down to 1st at like 60 and blew the trans.

Back to Zj, I wrecked mine on Wednesday. Hit the back of a newer Durango and pushed the door in about 5". The jeeps damage was a wrinkled license plate and the glass kc lenses. The plate bracket and the mag lite clips that hold it on to the fairlead are both fine. Hammered the plate flat and replaced the lenses with some spares I had laying around. Steel bumpers are awesome.

Locking gas cap cures that problem. 15 bucks at OReilly's.

How do you even siphon gas from a car anymore? Last I looked our Jeeps have an anti-siphon device in the filler neck.

Last vehicle I siphoned gas from was a 06 cummins who filled his tank with 93 octane gas. Got lucky with the hose trick, it went straight to the tank.

No tank is really anti-siphon. You just gotta know how to do it like someone else said with a small hose maybe there a whild but you get it.

I do that everytime! Also during summer when the city maintenance opens fire hydrants to flush them and you floor it to go through puddles

Must have been a small diameter hose, I believe all the ZJ's had a rollover ball installed in the filler tube, makes siphoning gas kinda hard. Maybe I'm mistaken....

You know you drive a ZJ when even the H3 owners agree with your decal. "H3 Recovery Vehicle"
I've pulled out 3 so far, and my ZJ isn't even equipped with recovery hooks, is stock and just has AT tires. And these were on well run trails, not really offroad. Methinks the H3 owners think the baby H is a capable as the real H.
I got a military Hummer stuck once when I was in the Corps, used a 6X to pull it out.

The H3 is very capable, it has impressive approach and departure angles, nearly 10" of ground clearance and can ford 30" of water. It even comes with optional locking rear differential and if you get the Alpha a 300hp v8!

Those aren't the ones I come across..........

I've seen a couple in Raleigh that seem to be setup really well, they look pretty decent.
