Did he mention that you can still fit in a compact spot at a pretty good angle? I drove in at about 20* off and was still completely in the lines. (the lines were angled not me! I swear!)

...

When on dates you open the doors for the ladies...not to be polite... but because of 2 reasons... 1, chics cant press the button hard enough to get the doors open... and 2, because your door are off alignment because you take em off, and it's a pain in the *** to explain "lift and pull at the same time!"...

MY parents flipped **** when I took the doors off... lol (WHAT HAPPENED TO MY CAR!!!!)

When you have to explain to your minivan driving friend that dirt is supposed to be on an XJ, not on the ground.

When your ZJ-driving friend wonders how he can meet girls with his jeep and you simply respond: "buy an XJ"

Or when getting in the passenger door of your own XJ, forgetting that you have to duck the opposite way,
You smack Your Head on the door jamb.
