When you pay more attention to your fuel quantity gauge than to the road!

you budget boost while you still have stock tires, then get a set of tires that are way too big for your BB because they were used and you saved $200, and then find out you need to spend about $500 to lift it some more to accomodate the tires you just bought, however you put those tires on anyway, before you have the money to lift it more, and it scrubs like hell when you go around a corner too quick

you freak out at every smell you come across while driving because you think she's acting up.

when you hit the window switches all at the same time and all four windows get to the top at different times.
when your stereo gets quieter when you hit the fog lights.

After you pull your driver side wing window shut, you stick a nickel between the little handle and the window because she likes to whistle at high speeds....and you know that if you can't find a nickel, that a dime and a penny will work, but it isn't nearly as slick as the nickel.

when applying for a parking permit at college, the lady filling out the "office only" side looks at your slip and asks, "now do you have a jeep that locks?" and your first thought is "well most of the time."

...When you hear a vehicle coming down the road and you know its an XJ because its 24 degrees out and the electric fan is going

...When your driving with a friend in his '89 XJ with some girls to the movies and one of them points out the front seat is crooked and he says "its not crooked its just in the "gangsta lean" position" and then proceeds to break the seat even more by trying to adjust it

...When your in the college parking lot and tell a girl she has a nice XJ and she looks at you like you just gave her a booty call
