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 come home from being gone for two weeks and you dont take the nice truck to work but give the jeep the exercise because you feel bad that you haven't driven it

when almost all of your passengers that ride with you ask if your windows are down. I get that alot i think its because of the wind drag

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 call your insurance company to get your jeep insured and it ends up being cheaper than your 4 dr 4cyl grand am... that makes me love it even more

when you let a friend drive it for the first time and he says it handles kind of like a minivan, but it has a cool factor to it xD

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
