... you wonder if the owner of the '97 ford exploder sitting in the local grocery store parking lot will miss his rear axel.

You can't take a vacation because you blew all your v-days working on the jeep.

As soon as you see another XJ driver you try and figure out if they have ever taken it off-road and if so could it out wheel yours.

You constantly think about how much better it would look with shaved drip rails...

you know you drive an xj when you have not driven it anywhere in 6 months and you drive a broken in half pathfinder that won't die

When you look at a thread called "You know you drive a XJ when.." and realize that there is probably more stuff that you need to look at on your own cherokee....

and when you tighten the valve cover every 1,000 miles or so

when your TC chain gives out on a wheeling trip and you just laught and tie a giant rope from your front axle to your buddies XJ and get there.

When your exhaust starts smacking your gas tank skid so you find an old piece of wire in the desert and make a new "bracket"

when you have to unlock your passenger door first or the alarm goes off.

When you use a self car wash pressure washer for 20 minutes, and you still have mud on your driveway when it rains.

When instead of grabbing a socket or wrench to take off an old bolt you grab a angle grinder
