when "death wobble" is a household term for all your friends and family.
no matter what your lift set up is you always want to change to something better
1990 XJ, complete HO swap, approx 4" lift, 33 mt's, "trimmed" fenders, cobra CB, Homebrew roof light bar, 91' non disconnect front axle. various odds and ends.
"Friends don't let friends wrench alone"
when a d35 is weaker than a wet noodle when you are talking to your YJ buddies, but then after you find a good deal on a XJ with a d35, you are sure that it can handle the 35 inch tires so you can save up a bit before you do the 9 inch swap.
When you can not explain why the carpet in the front passenger foot well is wet.
Why you need a full size spare on the roof.
Explain to your wife why it feels squirrelly when driving compared to her comphy sedan.
When you have to look for a vacumn leak because your heat/ac won't come out the right vents.
Just a slightly modded XJ with a little lift, some armor, four mud tires and a few decals, so far.
when you have seafoam... and know which vacuum line to use it in
you are all too familiar with broken top shock mount bolts
you are ALWAYS working on it ,even though it may not actually need to be worked on
when people have to ask you what color your XJ is because no ones ever seen it not totally covered in mud.
[COLOR="DarkRed"]2000 Cherokee Sport 4.0L Selec Trac[/COLOR] - mine - for occasional wheeling
[COLOR="DarkGreen"]2007 Patriot 2.4L FD I 4x4[/COLOR] - wifes - doomed to rarely leave the street
When you get neverous because nothing has broke for an extended period.
When after you wash your normally muddy XJ the security guard stops you because he. nolonger recognizes it.
3" Rough Country Lift, 3in shackles, 3 RC shocks, 31" BFG ATs, 2 KCs, Lighted Roofrack, Soft 8s, TC drop, Custom oil leak deflector.

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.
Or when you buy an unreasonably priced xj because it has a 5" lift 33's and have to go straight home cause its over heating, and immediately put 500 bucks into it to make it run at 210 degrees. And replace CPS. And ignition system.
