When you install a lift kit and tires in the garage, find out your Jeep is too tall to fit through the door. So instead of lowering the Jeep, you sawzall the door opening bigger!

Naw the door needed to be raised anyway, that's where I park the Jeep. I just trimmed off 2"s and took the foot plate off the lip of the door. Now it all fits!

You know you own a TJ when you consider driving around with the top down during a thunderstorm exhilarating.

You know you drive a TJ when:

The price of your long arm lift kit cost more than you could have paid for a complete YJ.
