When you spend $300 on tires but spending 20 on a muffler seems like a waste

YKYDAXJ when you don't claim it's fast or better than every other Jeep made.

When everyone stares at you as you drive down the road in your muddy jeep

When you know your spot at work by the mud that fell off your car onto the spot

When a hummer owner has to call you to come pull them out

Take the doors off. Much more breezy. I used to have to ride down the highway with the door open to cool my feet off.

I just turn my ac on and freeze

When every spring you worry if you'll have to swap an evaporator to have ac lol

When in the shop getting an alignment it looks and sounds badass haha

I used to freeze until I got a bad ground on the a/c somewhere since the ACC randomly turns on and off and sometimes blows relays. I tried to diagnose it one day and after about an hour I got out the air chisel and cutting wheel and removed the doors haha.

When you hit rough spots in road and the DW appears shaking the whole jeep, you slow down to stop it and the engine starts running rough(apparently knocked something loose), sputters trying to get 45mph, and check engine light comes on. You have no $ at moment to repair it so you just pull codes to narrow the problem down. Next day you get in, start it to move it in shop and notice the check engine light is off and engine isn't running rough. Curious enough you drive it down the road with no problems. Thank you xj for fixing yourself overnight
