...you clean it off by driving through the puddles after it rains, regardless if it was dirty or not. And when your passenger says why did you do that, you say to clean the mud on the underbody haha
...when you get pissed when some guy says ya i got a jeep like yours its got a V8, then you flip out and tell them its not a jeep cherokee its a grand cherokee
....you still wonder why that it has been said the D35 was put in more xj's when 9 out of 10 you see have a Crysler 8.25
.....you get mad when the kid with the lifed xj cant go where you just went with your non lifted xj, spoiled punks
.....when you want to get a 4cly as a daily driver so you can do all that stuff to your xj
..... you refer to your jeep as a jeep xj when the parts guy asks what you need, then you have to correct yourself and say cherokee
..... you stick up for your jeep, even if there is holes in the floor

when people ask you why you would buy a car with 200,000 miles on it, you reply with, "i dont have a car"

When you have another car with three times the miles, but you still drive it most of the time, because it has one tenth the problems.

All the guys who drive CJs, early Broncos, and Scouts are jealous of you because you can go anywhere they can in a comfortable, fuel injected, automatic with a/c.

When you leave a Civic eating your dust and laugh for several minutes at the expression on his/her face.



When your upgrades are worth 10 times as much as the Jeep itself.

when I sit through a statistics class looking over the JF boards and reading this post rather than listening to standard deviation lectures

When you count down the days to graduation and the end of college knowing all free time before a career will be spent building on the beast.

When you avoid driving in the rain because it kind of "cleans" your jeep.
