Yes! I always have to explain my switches and how to use them and when the temp jumps up turn the fan on and don't leave it on when you stop. And don't turn hard cuz no sway bars. And the chirping in the rear is the welded diff. And when it rains be real careful turning. Lol

When you buy a nice XJ because it would be a cheap and capable DD. And a month later you can't wait to dump money into it.

I have a mj but same thing.

When literally the first thing anybody says upon entering the truck is something to the tune of "wow! this is way taller than i thought". Almost imeadiatly followed by, "why is there no thingys on the doors, or carpet, or anything?" Referring to my lack of interior.

And once it starts moving the look on their face is priceless. It takes some reassurance and at least a couple miles to convince them there not going to die (some more than others)

I could think of more later, but I just find it funny how everyone has the same reaction on their first ride no matter who they are lol.

When you are in front of the convenience store with the hood up, allowing the engine to cool to halt the heat soak misfire.

Welcome to the club... you got pics or a build thread yet?

You know your drive an XJ when you have a dream of it on 40s then you wake up and are sad.

YKYDAXJW you haven't cops do double and triple takes when they see no doors but never pull you over.

YKYDAXJW you lower your engine temp on the highway by popping the hood.

YKYDAXJW you are too poor to buy your new tires till you sell your old ones so you have your XJ up on block's for a week.

I'm not saying we should kill stupid people... Just get rid of all the warning labels...
If you find my comments to "infer" something, they don't. Go to hell.

YKYDAXJ when the cowl leaks and your passenger floor has standing water on it and you dont care and decide its motivation to pull the carpet and bed line the floors.

He's an angel dressed in oilskins; he's a saint in the "Sou'wester,"
He's a pluck as they come, or ever can;
He's a hero born and bred, but it hasn't swelled his head,
For he's just the U.S. Government's hired man.

popping the hood on the highway is pretty risky, I have had a hood latch fail and the hood popped open on the highway and nearly broke my windshield!

It was that or overheat and wait for someone to come bring me a radiator hose. I chose hood open.

Had it happen to me to. Bent the hell out of my hood and broke my cowl. I had to put hood spacers on to get it to even line up enough to open and close

You know you drive a SWEET XJ when even the guy in the Porche 911 convertible turns his head to watch you drive by

No doubt!


This ones deep:

... when, somehow, you gradually begin to love it more at the same rate in which you begin to give less of a **** about it. Does that make sense?

Disrespect

when you tell people you drive a Jeep and when you pull up they ask where its at.

Perfect sense! I loved my '87, but man, what a big fat pile of trouble it was.
