You're trying to budget ways to make payments on your Jeep AND put 1 ton axles/38s+ underneath it in a semi-reasonable time.

You replace every u-joint on the Jeep chasing vibrations only to find it's still there.

You have to explain to every non-TJ owner that your Jeep does NOT have hubs and the front driveshaft is always spinning but is in 2wd.

The first thing you do is paint your headlight rings.

Pffft, a real TJ does 3" suspension lift and 33in swampers before the 1" BL

You know you drive a TJ when it is considered a sin to have more than a 1.25" body lift

...when your vehicle comes with 4 coils, rides like a box on wheels, but you still want to drive it everywhere.

You know you're a TJ owner when you can't afford the 3" SL cause you just sent a payment to the bank

When you just get done with a Mod and decide this isn't what I wanted and spend another $500.00

When you close you door and your seat belt is in the way!!

Yup. I wouldn't be surprised if at least 40% of people have this problem, if not more.

Now mine....When the people at the gas station know you by name but driving it makes it all worth it! Also when you can spot an oncoming TJ even in the dark because of its style of lights and still wave!
