When you pick up any Jeep magazine and feel like the favorite grandchild.

the rain drains off your bikini top into your lap beacuse youd rather buy more lights instead of door surrounds

Speaking of headlights... You know you own a TJ when you walk outside, look at your wonderful TJ and say "yeah, square headlights do look silly".

You know you drive a TJ when you first get it and try 5 different techniques to keep the lights off when you take off your doors. lol

You know you own a TJ when your wife labels all the parts catalogs, internet purchase receipts, and various forums as "Jeep Porn"

Owning a TJ means the only time the interior gets cleaned is when it rains.

...when you just spent a crapload on axle problems just to swap in a new axle.

...when you want 33s not even a year after having slapped on 32s.

You spend $2500.00 on a complete suspension mod all because you found 1 worn out bushing. And justify it by saying the rest would need to be replaced someday.

...you know your jeep is mechanically sound because you have replaced 60% of it with after market parts.

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

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

When every pair of Wranglers (as in Jeans) you own has the belt loop over your left hip ripped off.
1#.. Soo true and soo funny!!!
2#.. why I love my jeep!
3#.. I missed that one the first time threw!!! I can't believe how true that is!!! I get "in" the jeep different now!! Although, my passengers still have this problem!!
----

When you can take the top off and doors off... legally!

When everyone want's to ride in your jeep with the top and doors are off!

When everything you thinks about is a lift, axles, and bigger tires!!

When you get the TJ, read the forums to find out it has a D35, then wishing you would have found a jeep with a D44.

when you spent 40K on it, but you can't drive it because:

1) bad gas mileage
2) you have it taken apart in the garage in the next round of mods
3) it breaks constantly


ironically enough, all three apply to me right now.

when you don't worry about leaving it outside and running because anyone that might try to steal it will only stall it anyway....
