When your Jeep can go through snow, rocks, mud, and anything in between but highway traffic scares the hell outta you.

Life's tough, that's why I drive a Jeep. Until it breaks, then life's a *****.

Know how you feel, the tranny went in my yj when I was driving home from work with the intent to order the lift kit as soon as I walked in the door.

When you have more tools in your trunk than you do in your garage simply because you use them so often its easier to keep them back there.

You know you drive a xj when your pull up to a tricked out mustang at a light and when it turns green you launch off the line only to remember that you have all your welding stuff in the back including the welder, all your hand tools, and all your recovery gear. As he pulls away you yell "yeah but you can't change a motor out and make a bumper on the side of the road with what your carrying in your trunk.

You have a perfectly good A/C, but make the choice to just roll down all four windows instead.
