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

everytime you start saving for upgrades, something else goes wrong with it and your savings is gone.

most recent i was starting to save up for a hNt and driveshaft and the o2 sensors went bad the day i had the money to order it.

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.
