When you slow down to see every other xj on the road, and one day hope to come across an amber fire.

Total opposite here. There was one new grand at my JY (which I stole coils off...not ambitious enough to get disks). There were about 10 XJ's from 89ish to 92's. Even a limited edition 92...4 door tho.

I'm suprised this one hasn't been brought up.

When you hear someone, tv, or radio say that they have a 02+ Jeep cherokee. Maybe it's me, but I stop and say there is NO 02+ Jeep CHEROKEE!!!!! and NO it's not the same as a Jeep grand cherokee. ARG!!!

Holy poop that's a graveyard!!!!!!!

When every JY worker knows you by name, and can guess exactly what you need this time.

Your jeep has a "happy" side and a "sad" side (driver and passenger, my driver side is BEAUTIFUL, passenger has dents, scratches, a huge scar, bumper cap is torn, and now only the adhesive is left from pulling lower siding)

Every time you walk outside you stare at your jeep for five minutes, walking in circles and mumbling to yourself, even if you were just talking to your friends while walking out of the house/school/store.

Your friends notice that you aren't paying attention to them and ask what you want to do to your jeep next (not related to above, meaning when you're away from the jeep).

Gas station workers know you as two different people; the one that steps out of a dirty jeep with a suit on on friday, and the one on saturday who steps out of the even dirtier jeep in a wife beater, your "dirty" pants, and flip flops because your feet hurt from squatting.

You know the exact location, era, and what goodies EVERY xj in EVERY junkyard has within 50 miles.

When with your girlfriend, you claim EVERY time that she drove last and it's your turn.

When with said girlfriend, you know more about her 2002 nissan frontier than anyone in her house, hate everything about it, know it is way more comfortable to ride in, but long for your jeep when she wins the "who's driving" contest.

You keep a running list of future replacements and upgrades, which never gets shorter no matter how much you add or replace.

You can; balance a big gulp, roll up/down every window (manual), shift (manual tranny), use turn signal, blow a stop sign, turn left/right, avoid the car in the opposing lane because you overshot again because you'd rather near miss than SH** yourself due to body roll, and listen for noises as you turn, ALL WITHIN THE SAME SECOND.

You can swap in/out front coils in an hour or less (or in my case, you motivate yourself to work faster by drinking milk or having any dairy product, because you know it'll hit you in an hour or less, and tell yourself that there are NO potty breaks when wrenching).

You search for hours around town for that "street" special edition MJ you saw that one time in hopes that you can cheat the owner out of it and sell it to a jeep freak on the comanche forum for three times the price you paid (still searching, baby!).

You suddenly lose all dignity when in a parking lot, and look under every jeep to see what they do or don't have, making a list as you go along, secretly hoping that the next place you see them is in a junk yard (but that the owner made it out safely).

There's that one JY XJ that you vowed to never steal parts from because you found baby shoes in it

Finally, neglecting homework on a sunday night to post random things that define why you are a jeep owner on jeepforum.

Oh so many more!

you have to go to the dentist every week to have the fillings put back in after the death wobble shook them out.

you bought that other same year same color XJ "for parts" even though all the parts that are bad on your daily XJ are as bad or worse on the other Xj also. but you dont care cuz now you have two XJs

The "stock" parts on your XJ are mostly comprised of other vehicles "stock" parts.

Every upgrade cost twice as much as the upgrade in replacing the parts that broke while trying to get them off to do the upgrade in the first place.

The guy at the parts store just hands you his computer keyboard so you can look it up yourself.

You walk through the front door of the JY and they open the back door so you can go get what you need, and it's not a pull a part.

When your passengers ask you what that awful noise is when you turn the key...
You know that its time to change the oil when you get up to 5k rpm's and you can hear the rocker arms hitting the valves...
you've only almost rolled it twice...
You ask a friand to turn the key when you spray in the starter fluid and they ask What Key? and you just reply with just turn where the key should be...
You walk around your high school with an empty bottle of anti-freeze in your hand and convince your friends its your new water bottle and they belive you...
