when you bought two (2), yes two whole parts donors cheaper than you would pay for any piece/part from the parts house.

... when you have to remove the entire intake manifold to replace the exhaust manifold.

Who came up with this idea? Did they really think saving money by going with one gasket instead of two was worth the extra aggravation? Did they get Inspector Gadget to design the lower bolt locations? This has got to be the most irritating thing I've had to do to the Jeep yet.

Of course, driving home from my buddy's house was much quieter and now that cylinders are appropriately sealed and getting the correct air/fuel mixture (the gasket was hopelessly blown for several cylinders), it seemed like there was more power and much quicker throttle response.

But way too quiet, so now I'm looking at mufflers... Does it ever end?

God, I hope not!

You know you drive an XJ when a thief can't even steal it. Thanks god for the bad check valve. Unintentional anti-theft device, but works great.

When your XJ is broken down and at night when you sleep you have bad dreams about having to drive the Pontiac Grand prix the next day.

When your high beams are no brighter than the DRL's on a Cavalier.

When "Limited" means you get nice things like paint, cloth, and windshield wipers.

Heated mirrors? YES ABS? NO

When no matter where your right foot position is in the travel of the gas pedal, you're gonna go the same speed.

When people tell you they could hear your radio when you turned the corner down the street, but you really didn't have it turned up very loud.

When you use touch up paint, clay bar, polish, wax, etc on all of your other vehicles but have no problem dragging an old rusty piece of metal across the hood of your Jeep. "It adds character... window dressing if you will."

When as long as the lubricants that are dripping over your exhaust pipe aren't actually on fire, all is well.

When you know exactly how much oil to add just by looking at the latest stains on your driveway.

When you park in your backyard just so you can have the satisfaction of driving over a few rocks & thru a ditch or two in the field behind your house.

When its the only vehicle you will park in a Wal-Mart parking lot, and your family parks their car at your house & takes your XJ to said store.

When you have a Corvette, Caddilac, and a Lincoln in your garage, but you take your XJ to pick up chicks.

When your trans still shifts even though you dropped all the oil out of it a few months ago.
