when you have successfully smashed more than one set of tranny cooler lines.

when people ask you to turn on the heat in the winter, and you can turn the a/c on and it will be just as hot.

When you read 694 posts that scary the s&^it out of you and you 're wondering why you have XJ instead of nice Ford Focus...
I guess it's a Jeep thing...

...when your dirt, oil and grease covered mechanic gets in the Jeep to diagnose a noise and tells you how filthy the interior is from wheeling.

Here we go with the Ford bashing again. I had my mustang for 3 years and over 50k miles, 30k of which were supercharged and I still had the stock motor, clutch, trans, and rear end. Never had anything on it break, stock or aftermarket, and it always ran like a dream. I drove it hard as hell on the street, autocrossed, and drag raced. Seems pretty reliable to me.

... people constantly ask you how much mpg you make and you see the horror in their eyes when you tell them truth...

(at least in my country)
That Ford was COMPLETELY RANDOM choice... Don't start flame war because of that...

when people ask why?

and you respond by driving over every median in the school parking lot and getting out first

when the tire rubs and your girlfriend asks what that noise was and you respond with its growling for more and you burst out with a loud grrrrrrrr!!!

you want bigger tires after you had your 35's for 3 days

...when your XJ is the background to your phone/computer

...when your first thoughts of holiday shopping include "what can I get for the XJ?" not... "what can I get for friends/family/GF?"

...when your GF who used to hate "gas guzzlers" and drives a yota tells you "I want a jeep" after u let her drive it. (only in an empty parking lot I might add)

...when you park your XJ in the empty campus commuter parking lot and come back to find it surrounded by other XJ's as well as ZJ's and TJ's (its like we have our own jeep corner)
