your cb atenna hits every light, pipe, and sign in the parking garage (if you fit)

your buddy rips his pants getting into your jeep

quick fix means turn up the volume

you had to wait a week for a hitch drop down ball because they dont have your in stock

When you know the location of every junkyard within 50 miles.
When you buy a reasonably priced vehicle and upgrade it with unreasonable amounts of money.

When there are rust holes in your floorboards big enough to throw a cat through.

When your interior gets wet every time it rains.

When your freinds make fun of you for that heep and you counter with, "Ive replaced all the parts though"

When you drive with the music loud with your freinds, and quiet with yourself to diagnose the new noise

You take girls on a date and open the door for them to be a gentleman
^and because your door secretly doesnt close if you dont click the metal lever on the inside because the spring rusted though.

You crawl under the jeep to check it out after driving the highway.

You crawl under the jeep to check it out after offroading

You crawl under the jeep to check it out for no reason at all

After spending money to upgrade you dont notice it and start another search to empty your bank

Even though theres millions out there, yours is special and you get in a fight with your mom because she doesnt think it will make a 2000 mile trip and even though you would like to start over again you dont want to go without your Jeep.--even though when someone says, come on colin, lets take your jeep to the place 2 minutes up the road you dont want to because your waiting for something to go wrong

You must purchase a winch "just in case"

You argue constantly how "its just like a wrangler"

Your spare tire is on the roof, "for show"

You've ever argued over a "SYE"

You can name at least 3 off brand lift kits and why they all are great/suck.

You're never really sure if it's a new noise or a change in pitch of an old one.

You've cleared a path through mid-day interstate traffic because your front wheels started wobbling violently.

All of your mechanicing clothes are permanently stained with Anti-seize and PB Blaster.

Your parking spot indicates oil doesn't stay in your engine long enough to need changed.

You can incorporate a pool noodle into autobody repair.

You've pieced your vehicle together from several different decades because the manufacturer didn't use all of the best parts on the same vehicles.

You beat the living tihs out of a vehicle you claim to love.

You know more about part interchangeability than the dealership.

You randomly purchase others just so you always "have a spare......".

you have a dozen different size and shape BFHs, all marked with tags as to what part of the XJ needs it and how many times it will need to be hit.

When PB blaster is only for a "new" Cherokee. Yours is so frequently disassembled as to no longer necessitate it's use.

when you have a box full of the broken craftsman wrenchs and screwdrivers that you broke, and need to return to get a free new one, because you were to lazy to get the PB Blaster.

then you take the tools back and they ask how you broke them and all you have to say is i have a jeep XJ and they understand perfectly.

and the casher knows you by name

The more scratches and dents it gets, the more beautiful you think it is.

Your friends refers to it as "the jeep".

When people ask what the steel wire and the clips inside the front wheel well is for.

When you have to correct the ZJ owner when they says they have a Cherokee

When you have to correct the SUV owner when he/she says they have a Jeep

When you go by pictures for TREs in auto zone because their computer have the parts mislabeled.

You feel really weird when you realize you don't have anything to tweak/adjust/fix at any given time.

When you reconnect the battery and have to do key tricks before the Jeep will start because of a POS factory alarm system.

When a crooked steering wheel is considered normal.

When shifting an AT out of park during the winter would be easier with a C-clamp.

If you've ever broke a rear windshield wiper because you were too lazy to clear the snow off of the window.
