When you spend an entire day taking off your doors then an entire day after getting the mud off your seats/dash/floor

when you see an XJ roll the other direction on 35's with a smokin chick driving and you come several inches from rolling right over the honda civic in front of you because you were so distracted

saw a cherokee sitting out front of a dealership with a cash for clunkers sign on it. I was at the coffee shop and we were talking about how I wanted to go in and give them cash for their clunker. Somebody chimed in and said "Oh if that was turned in as a clunker they put something in the gas tank and run it. The stuff seizes the motor as per the governments rules" my mouth dropped and I said "their gonna do that to that cherokee???" Then a single tear rolled down my face.
im with you on that one. I think that they should at least give some of the jeeps away or somthing. i know tons of people who would love a cherokee. Cash for Clunkers was Stupid

when you just put your lift kit on and take it for a ride and not 500 yards down the road hear something go ting ting ting on the road

when once you get 31's and a 3.5 lift you already want to go bigger

when you jeep always smells like something is burning when you get out and walk past the engine

The engine just keeps running better and better... A friend actually commented the other day that it sounded a lot better than last time he rode in it.

You look at your garden tub as a huge parts washing cabinet and clean parts off in the shower.

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.

How would you call it a truck? My Cherokee 4x4 looks like a baby carriage next to my F250 Crew Cab Diesel 4x4

First off, it aint no car. Its a truck as far as i am concerned. Its a Jeep first and foremost though!
Truck= "any of various forms of vehicle for carrying goods and materials, usually consisting of a single self-propelled unit but also often composed of a trailer vehicle hauled by a tractor unit."
My XJ does a lot of carrying of goods and materials, so its a truck.. But its a Jeep because it will carry materials AND drive through small rivers and over rocks to get to the destination!
