When your passengers ask you to roll down their window because the solder broke in your door panel.
When your mom calls you to pick her up, because her "Yoda" can't make it up the little hill in the middle of a snow storm.

When your right calf muscle is bigger than the left, to compensate for lack of braking power.

when no matter what you turn your head to look at an XJ that just passed you, even if it means slowing down far below the speed limit.

When you yell at a Range Rover owner: Mine goes off-road!

When you need to speak slowly to TJ owner: U-NI-BO-DY.

when you are the only one who knows how to open half the doors.

when rolling your window down far enough for a nice breeze but not so far it wont go back up is a science.

when a 120 point inspection is performed in the driveway before going to the store.

-you make friends with co-workers with xjs

-(i work at menards so some may not understand this one but..) when pushing carts and the manager calls you to help someone load something into their vehicle and youre like "great, something else to slow me down" but no matter how many carts their are and how far behind you are, if the person youre helping load stuff into their vehicle has an xj, you spend an hour talking to them about jeeps.

-your jeep has a gangster lean

-people stare at your jeep as youre driving down the road

-people double take if youre xj is covered in mud

-you dont like washing the mud off your jeep because it looks better with mud on it

-washing your jeep means spraying it with a hose or waiting for it to rain

-you sometimes dont care what song youre listening to as long as it covers up the random noises your xj makes

-you have to stay 40 minutes late at work to help other co-workers get un-stuck during snow storms

-you swerve out of the way of an imaginary animal crossing the street to drive through the puddle on the side of the road

-your jeep never leaves you stranded

-you love your jeep no matter what

also forgot this one that happened to me today

-you have a defensive driving class (got a ticket half a year ago so i had to take a defensive driving clas so it wouldnt go on my record) and the teachers are cops or were cops and while waiting in line to do a slalom or swerve out of the way of a ball crossing the street at 50mph at the last second, you talk to the instructor about mods on your xj and what would be illegal or not.

-on your lunch break for said class, you go to an auto parts store

this is one of the most enjoyable threads I've read in years

whenever you see another xj pass by you're rattling off either that you're better then it because it's stock and you're not or you're seeing what size lift to fit what size tires they have and if you get a good enough look at the suspension components, you can tell what brand of lift they have.

When you speed up over speed bumps.

When suddenly, every suv with chrome wheels is a mall crawler.

When your advisor at school knows you don't own a car.

(You own a Jeep.)

When breaking a part is an excuse to upgrade.

When you laugh at Liberties.

When you get angry at auto zone, cause they ask- Grand? or the small boxy one?

A new paint job means going down to the local mud hole.
