You know you drive an XJ when you fix a problem with your backup lights by installing new marker light blubs

or when the reverse light switch is fine, the fuse is fine, the bulbs are fine, your grounds are fine and you still don't have functioning reverse lights

When your Jeep has numbered "X" marks on it and a three ring binder listing said "X" points as to what to hit it with and how hard for what symptom to be repaired...

Yeah, how was the humidity though? Louisville rarely get above 100, but the humidity gets 75-90%, thats the real killer here. But Ill take humidity over no flat tire any day. Lol.

You know you drive an XJ when you get bored so you take all the seats out, rearrange them and see if they fit any other way, and them put it all back.

When the first thing you do to your Jeep is lift it, so that there's more room for you to fix the other problems underneath the Jeep

when you're doing about 70-75 down the interstate hear a clunk and think nothing of it, then come to find later on down the road you've been dragging your muffler, break it completely off, throw it in the back and then keep going

Hahahaha, madmax. That's not exclusive to XJ's. Had that exact thing happen in a Toyota Tercel and my old Chevy pickup.

When within a week of having your Jeep you run out and buy a set of Torx bits
