Not too bad for the last four or five years.
You left out the gasket on the oil filter adaptor. Have changed that as well.

When your friends and family compete with your Jeep for attention and constantly refer to you as "completely obsessed".

when you call your family from college:

Dad: "how is the Jeep running?"
Me: "Good, I had to change the oil pressure switch and I also got a new HU!"
Dad: "cool! That radio always sucked"

Mom: "how is the Jeep"
Me: "Good, I had to change the oil pressure switch and I also got a new HU!"
Mom: "oh my gosh MORE stuff for the jeep? Why don't you pay more attention to school??"

When you tell people that you don't have a PVC valve but you do have a CCV valve

when your fiends automatically ask "do you need help with your jeep this weekend" rather than "what are you doing this weekend"

When you can't hear your radio over the squeaks, rattles, and exhaust.

When you shake your head and say "I can't believe that I'm putting a Ford part in my Jeep!"

If at first you don't succeed, use more speed.

when your wife is about to divorce you because you spend more time on your jeep & this forum researching, then you spend time with her.

Haha, I think there are only a few with 1-3", and I haven't seen any with 3+" like mine. So true....

When u use vise grips or a 2x4 to keep the lift gate open.
