When the amount of holes drilled in your airbox makes you think..." why do I even have this box anymore?"

when you cut more parts off than extra ones you put on to make it better

When someone explains how their vehicle is better, and you reply, "Yeah, but let's see who does better off-road." Regardless of what the other vehicle is.

When your passengers cringe and grab the edges of the seat frantically and you grin - on road or off.

When an ungodly noise happens that could be heard 3 counties away and your friends ask what it was you say, "What noise?" and crank the stereo.

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

When a Chryco 8.25 is an upgrade.

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

When you hand the person who is borrowing your XJ a piece of paper with a long list of noises, and tell them that its not gonna blow up if you experience any of this, its OK to keep going.

When you buy a reasonably priced vehicle and upgrade it with unreasonable amounts of money.
Haha!! TRUE!......when your "upgrades" total more than your XJ is worth!!!

When your list of upgrades never ends!
When your wife asks "is that thing finished?, when can I drive it?"
When every time you go to do an upgrade you break something and spend more money to fix it (should of left it alone!!)
When you wish you had a "real" cup holder for your Big Gulp.
When your floor boards have more rust than the titanic.

When you keep this: on your desk because nobody at the local parts store can remember the difference between the hub units for composite rotors and the hubs for non-composites.

When you run rotella 15w-40
when people say your dumb for taking your doors off
when people ask you why you didnt get a wrangler and you respond by trying to convince them xjs are better
when you can take one look at old fords and know exactly what axles they have cuz you want them on your jeep.
when you'll fabricate excuses for driving over curbs.
when you tell your friend with a duramax that you can out climb them.
when people wonder when your jeep will die because of all the sounds and the oil in the intake.

When you have to rock the rear inside door lock buttons back and forth several times to get the door to unlock.
When you have to slam the door to get it to close tightly.
When your friend leans against the outside of the door and puts a dent in it.
When your friend "closes" the door with his or her hip and puts a dent in it.
When you don't care about the dents in it.
When you have a crack in your exhaust manifold but it's ok because it's a Jeep thing.
When you have to replace your TPS after driving through the car wash.
When you have to replace your alternator after driving through high water or mud.

when you chase down other drivers of modded XJs to see if they want to wheel.





this thread should be a sticky.

When you challenge a guy with a 12ft high K5 bogger truck that he can't follow you for 30 minutes, race him out of a trail and down in a underground parking.

When all the maintenance / repairs are upgrades.

When you try to find another XJ at the grocery stores parking.

When you remove parts and don't bother put it back.

When the TJ owner of your Jeep club try to convice you that they have a REAL Jeep... Yeah right.

When you bring your own parts catalogue at the dealership and try to explain what you want and they have no idea what your talking about.
