you know you drive an XJ when..
Im sure a thread like this exists but I havent seen one in a long time so..

you have flashlights taped to your fender because theyre brighter than your high beams

you have an extra CPS in your glove box

you have a 55 gallon drum of PB blaster in the garage and if it wasnt so expensive you would wash your jeep with it every day

you know the wife and kids favorite window position and automatically lower the windows to it before they ask

people wonder why your radio has a "front/rear fader" when you only seem to have rear speakers

you watch the temp gauge on your 00-01 closer than any other gauge

youre keyless entry fob locks/unlocks every door except the ones you need.. drivers and hatch

your roof rack cross bars are in the back cargo area rather than on the roof for the extra .5 mpg

when everyone else that rides with you say "what are all those awful noises?"

skyjacked94xj 04-12-2008 06:52 AM

when people constantly complain getting in and out of the back seats

CharBroiled 04-12-2008 06:53 AM

you secretly like honda civics because they get great mpg, thus leaving more gas for your XJ to burn - plus theyre easy to park on top of when they take your parking space.

when you forget to connect your swaybars and bang around a corner and get up on 3 wheels and scare the hell out of anyone with you.

photonut13 04-12-2008 08:25 AM

you spend more money on the Jeep than the girlfriend/wife

jgoforth 04-12-2008 08:29 AM

^^^^ lol my gf is getting annoyed with that one....

when you turn on the fog lights and your radio turns off.

"What's that burning smell" is a common passenger statement

Rowingfish87 04-12-2008 08:46 AM

when you schedule everything else around working on your jeep

1996xj 04-12-2008 08:54 AM

When you swap your tires just to go on the highway, or maybe thats just me.

When you purposly hit a curb in hopes of covering up a rattle.

When are willing to constantly jump curbs to avoid careless drivers.

When your radios main purpose is to cover up random noises.

When the dogs pefer riding in the XJ becaause they dont slide around on herculier.

When you run something like 20w50 so you dont have to replace your crankshaft.

When neighbors thing the UPS truck then you stop at their house.

when u turn the radio down and tell everyone to shut up cuz u think u heard a new noise

seanyb505 04-12-2008 09:06 AM

You are frequently caught looking under other XJs to see which axle they have

You always correct people when they say your vehicle is a truck - It is not a truck, its a Jeep.

You have to explain there is a difference between people who own a Jeep and drive a Jeep, you drive a Jeep.

89mudlite 04-12-2008 09:14 AM

x2 on that one... you drive around with your doors off and everyone looks at you funny for doing it and your friends tell you your crazy for wanting to do it

Barchack 04-12-2008 09:57 AM

you can unroll all of your manual windows from the driver's seat

it takes you 10 minutes to explain all of the rattles and intricacies involved in driving your jeep...and they still call you 10 minutes later to ask if it should sound as if it were about to blow up.

you're one of two people: someone with a 2-door, or someone who wishes they had bought a two door.

you're always going to "rhinoline your whole floor next time you get a chance."
