when you spend more time under it then you do behind the wheel

when you look at your oil pressure and temp gauge more then the road

When you look for any given reason to floor it through a yellow light, because there is purpose in wasting half your gas tank.

Any time you gas it hard, you have to let everyone in your xj know thats why you have no gas.

When you squeak every time you brake no matter what.

when you plan a project that will take 2 hours, take over 8 and still dont finish, realize in the process you have no idea what your doing and by the end you could do it again in 2 hours.

when you are surprised how bad the jeep can look when you are working on it with half the dash in the back seat, or half the engine bay out, then how fast it can look back to how it should be in almost mins
