I do that everyone I drive. It's just habit now. I even look at the gauges when my husband is driving my jeep

When your front cladding is held on with zip ties because most of the tabs were gone when you bought it.

however, i think we can all agree that there is NOTHING girly or cute on a ZJ. It is a straight bodied, powerful, beast of a vehicle. They are also a symbol of hard work, and you cant help but feel like the better man when you pull up to an intersection. (you guys know what i mean)

Props to you for being a woman Jeep owner and driver!

I often pull up at stoplights next to officer worker type guys, clean shirts and hands in their BMWs or Mercedes' convertibles who seem to be enjoying their "manly" 100k midlife crisis cars and look down at them and just smile. Their look back is often a look of disappointment in themselves, kind of as if they realize that no matter how hard they try, they will never experience the true satisfaction of life as a 21 year old with greasy hands in a beefed up Jeep
This is how i feel dozens of times a day!!! I live in NOVA and we have 30% of our residents work for the Government and commute to DC in their pretty little cars. Then they see me... the look on their face is priceless!

Story of my life man, I'm glad somebody agrees. My area is full of the kind of people who bring their cars to a garage for new windshield wipers because they would hate to get their shirt dirty. No matter how cool they might think they are in their convertible Benz that dad has just bought them because they finished high school, when I pull up beside them, they realize where their priorities should be

When you keep a gatoraid bottle cap in your glove box in case you destroy the rear drive shaft, fits like a glove and keeps the oil in the t-case. My friend did this! Drove home 65 miles in fron wheel drive.

When your ignition switch lock wears out from frantically cycling the ignition key ON-OFF-ON-OFF-ON while checking for Check Engine Light codes. Then for the next two weeks, you drive around starting/stopping the engine with a giant screwdriver jammed in the ignition switch while waiting for the new parts to arrive.
