Thats great! I never used to carry pocket knives on me, and when I got the jeep I started carrying 3. A sharp one, a strong one, and a serrated one

i loved my schrade i had, it kept a decent edge but it was not tempered enough (the edge chipped some and i snapped the tip off). i would count it as not xj friendly

When you turn your heater on and 30 minutes later you feel it starting to blow and realize you forgot you ever turned it on.

when you tun the heater on and about 4 minutes later you get a rush of obscenely hot air rushing to your face that makes you rethink weather you even need the heater on anymore
