YKYDAXJ when....your IAT is higher than your engine coolant temp! And when the CEL stays on because you're tired of replacing the rear o2 sensor from bashing it on rocks too many times (this is the 3rd time and I am not changing it lol)

I fixed my on again off again CEL with a 1"x1" piece of black duct tape...

And on that note, YKYDAXJ when you get tired of chasing an on again off again CEL...

Ykydaxjw - Your tires are going to cost more than the Jeep did.

YKYDAXJ when you are constantly throwing parts/upgrades at it - but you have countless sources through which to buy parts/upgrades.

(when I started modding my WK that wasn't the case)

Your friend asks you what you would do if you had unlimited funds and a wrangler. You say "sell it and buy an XJ"
Only in a Jeep, only in an XJ

When your views on God are what makes you see just how fast it can go

I've had mine at 85 a few times..I was trying to keep from getting run over on I-95 on my last trip down to Florida; the cranky teenager did ok but me? Not so much..definitely made me pray to the Jeep Gods.."Please just keep her in one piece long enough to get back to Virginia Beach"

I think the XJ is upset with me..I'm not taking her down to Jacksonville next week and she's been misbehaving. Nothing too crazy..one day her power locks work, the next they don't and she's running a slight temp (almost 220). I'm not taking her on the roadtrip because her mileage is almost 200K and I just don't want to add that kind of miles to the heart of my cranky teenager. Great..another teenager with an attitude problem
