When you just bought another jeep and have engine problems on the the way home but still happy you got another jeep

Then you cant sleep for the first month thinking about all you want to do to make it your jeep.

You go to the parts store and they know you by name and only have to ask which year jeep of yours it is this time.


God give me money the jeep taketh away....

When your vision is too poor to read exit signs at night, but you have anti-deathwobble pothole radar that is accurate up to a mile.

When your XJ gets hit by a volvo while yur at a stop sign and you hit yur head on the door...the paramedics yell at you because while they are trying to see if you are okay your under your jeep seeing what the damage is and if its fixable. Your mad at the dumb driver not because you have a headache but because all your brand new fluids are leaking all over the road and your front wheel is pushed up into the body.

When the stupid insurance hasn't called yet to tell you wether the lady is buying you a new jeep or your old one is getting fixed...and you kinda hope the old one is fixable so you can get it back and build the **** out of it so next time the jeep will win

When you go over a bump just right with your rear wheels and say "good ol' leaf springs"

When you can drive the speed limit safely in a snowstorm

when people use the entry handles on top of the doors to hold on for dear life during a sharp turn

When you spend twice as much on parts for it than what you paid for it.

Here in Texas we don't get a lot of snow but we do get some major ice...everyone with 4x4's think they own the road...and some how end up in the ditches.. I still drive like a grandma when it snows and ice. just because of that... 4x4 makes you go further but don't make you handle any better at high speeds.

When you dont drive on certain roads or freeways because it's too bumpy and you dont want to upset the death wobble.
