When you have to hold a Jeep orientation for your new girlfriend or friend concerning all of its quirks and issues so they will not freak out when riding in it.

When your girlfriend knows the distinction between XJ, TJ, YJ, CJ, ZJ, and JK... because you require it.

When you can distinguish between a D34, D44, Ford 8.8, C8.25, or D60 from 100 feet away.

When you're well aware of both what and where your neutral safety switch is.

When you roll down your windows and your front speakers turn off.

When you're scared of removing your rear shocks from their top mounts in fear of the bolts snapping.

When you actually wear earpluggs while driving AND have sets for your passengers to wear also.

When you factor in your XJ into your monthly spending budget... before things like utilities or rent/mortgage.

When you go to the bone yard to get part and the XJ the yard is using for a "yard car" that they say they are "beating the hell out of" has all straight body panels, and the yard is in disbelief because you are buying parts for what you drove in ... that has no straight body panels...rusted out, and cracked windshield

When choosing your next modification is more important than choosing to get the previous fixed

-when you have spent more time doing 'free' mods on the vehicle than you have mods you actually spent money on.

-when you can do useful modifications and make the Jeep look better with an angle grinder, hammer, and spray paint.

When you pass 200,000 miles and feel that it's finally broken in.
