thats why those little convex mirrors should be a standard upgrade.

also there is a way to set the mirrors that helps, its kinda weird at first but put your head up to the window (closed) and move the mirror until you just see a sliver of the side of the vehicle, then move your head over to about inline with the rear mirror and move the passenger side mirror to be the same. if you do that you should have over lap from rear to side to your vision. works a lot better

When you over hear someone mention that they might buy a Cherokee while standing in line at the dining hall and you give them a detailed description of what they should look out for and what the best years,models, trim packages are

I was about to go to sleep in my 4th hour senior blow class (oceanography) and i over heard some kid in the back of the class that i don't really even know say he bought a Cherokee recently with "prolly like 6" inches of lift" and instantly I popped up and turned around and said "6 INCHES!!!", So i told him to meet me after school at a gas station so I could check it out... Completely STOCK! lol I laughed cause he seriously thought he had a lift... HIS LEAFS HAD JUST BEEN REPLACED... IT WASN'T LIFTED, IT JUST WASN'T SAGGING!!! lol ****ing newb... so I convinced him how its impractical to have tow hooks on the front... he's selling me them for $20 now... lol... He did have a swapped 44 on a 2000. The PO had replaced driveline, tc, and axles... pretty cool... And he said his "under panels" (rockers) were rusted out... It was just coating... I was definitely EGOed out...

When you keep a set of vice grips in the back to holed the hatch up.

When all the german ponds guards always serch your vehicle just so they can check it out when you are coming through the gate

When you would rather buy parts for the jeep than go out to eat.

When your 2 year old son can identify an XJ a mile away.

When you bought your vehicle from the junk yard for the sole purpose of building a beast of it and wishing you could make a compiliation of all the different years to build the ultimate xj that will still have all the same issues.

When you spend hours debating wether to trim more and go with a smaller lift so u have money for lockers or just spend more money and get more lift and lockers anyway.

When you have parts priced out in December and the total cost of parts equals exactly what you hope your tax return will be

when you explain toeveryone at work you master plan for the XJ and they don't understand a single thing you just said, afterwards they ask you if you might happen to know why their volvo is making that screeching sound

...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)
lol the parking lot in my apartments like that. I parked out in front of my apt the other night and look an hour later and theres 2 YJs, 2 XJs and 3 ZJs parked in the same lane lol

- When your completely stock 87 xj with nothing other than 30 / 9.50 Wildcat EXTs finally gets stuck at the top of a logging road, and every hick friend mudding buddy you call can't make it half as far as you did. And you are kindly escorted up the hill on Monday morning by the Dozer operator of the logging company who has a smirk on his face when you keep saying, "its up just a little farther...."

-When you replace the blower/fan motor and your reverse lights finally start working again.

-When you contemplate selling your XJ for a *newer, *better one but your friends won't let you.

-At night...your friends are concerned that you don't have interior dash lights, but you assure them you can "feel" how fast you are going.
