-(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
as for the ganster lean, i just noticed last weekend that one of the brackets that holds my drivers side leaf pack together has rusted off. time for an *ahem* "upgrade".
... you wake up every day wondering what's going to go wrong today ... with your Jeep
... you go the the auto parts store & the guy not only knows you by name, but he says, "how's that Jeep running, huh?"
... the same auto parts guy starts punching up your year/model jeep on the computer, and gets really confused when you say, "oh I don't need parts for the Jeep today"
... your family members drive Lexuses, Tahoes and Trailblazers, and they can't understand what you see in that bumpy, boxy, rattling old "truck" ... but they think of you first when the weatherman says "blizzard" !
... even though it's not your daily driver, you drive it to work on Monday all muddy just to freak out the prima donnas
... you know if you lift it any higher you'll deny yourself that ^ small pleasure because it won't fit in the parking garage at work anymore

when you go over 55 and have to slow down because of the "death Wobble" then all you passengers get freaked out and ask what the hell what that?

You drive with windows down when there is still snow on the ground since the interior is always warmer then an easy bake oven.
You like the howl your tires make.
You pray for washed out roads and go out of your way to find them.
You gain an extra inch of lift once all the caked on mud falls off.
You've nearly shat yourself when rocks come loose from your tires at 100km/h...you dont warn your passengers about that.
