you realize just how accustomed you were to the noises your old xj made that you think something is wrong with your new xj because its quiet (for now).

It's funny how we all pretty much hear random noises from our XJs. Whenever I have a passenger in my Jeep they always comment on that "rattling noise" or some other noise. lol

i like it when someone asks what that noise is. and i ask them to describe it. i get so used to it, i could rattle off for 5 minutes about the noises. (locker noises, bad shock, etc.) haha

When you are about to back off a curb and your friends flinch, and you smile.

mebbe its jus me being use to other cars or i jus dont like random weird noises. my jeep doesnt make any weird or random noises. and if it does i fix it. my jeep use to have a lot of the issues youve guys have named off over the last 49 pages and ive fixed almost all of em some before they became an issue. the only real thing i havent fixed yet is the rear brake locking on dewy morning thing and i almost bough a set of orvis edition rear discs didnt have the cash fo the whole swap at the time. my only leak left is the door seals. not one leak anywhere else. my water bill that weekend was really bad but i found all of em. i have almost no rust. buy my sandpaper primer and rubberized undercoating bill was... lets not go there. i have the standard vacuum line transercase font axle issues but i also have a posilock laying on a shelf in the garage. my headlights sucks i used 12 gauge and 4 relays into hella e codes. as i said mebbe its jus me. or mebbe my jeep is special. or im addicted to fixing and tinkering.

When you flip off H2 and H3 owners for no apparent reason.
When you carry AT fluid, gear oil, motor oil, 50/50 coolant, and an extra serpentine belt in the back, just in case.
When your girlfriend now knows more about Jeeps than the average person.

You know you drive an XJ when you have to hit your factory cd player just to check the time and change stations

When you realize the curb is no longer a limiting factor in parallel parking.

More on the random noises; Hissing fuel pumps scare passengers, especially when you mention that the noise means it's dying.

When you see speed bumps as a challenge rather than a deterrent.

When your brake lights decide if they feel like working today.. Starting to piss me off that one.

When your driver side window wont roll up but all the other ones work fine!! :

When some kids snap your turn signal lever and now your left blinker works but the right one doesnt. (right worked before and left didnt... lol)

When even know you should be saving for a trip you are taking in two weeks you think you might be ok if you just go ahead and buy the lift and tires.

When your DD gets relocated to outside the garage for your jeep.

When you have already heated up your DD for the morning drive and decide to take the XJ instead.

When hoodvents sound like the most amazing idea ever for an XJ! And they were.

When you know you are never going to be even close to done.

When you start to like the way the scratch's look in your NEW paint!

When you carry every tool you own with you, even to drive 5 miles to the store.

When you are offroading with a buddy and say he can drive but you just cant seem to get out of the drivers seat.

When you dont believe any of your gauges at any given time. And if the temp is below 210 then you know something is wrong.
