When you know what size wrench stuff takes before even working on it because you have already removed the same part 10 times before.

When your girlfriend yells at you cause you want a second XJ because they dont get good MPG.

When your worried if the check engine light isnt on.

When you drive into a ditch on purpose to see if you can get out.

When you wash your jeep and say what the heck did i do that for it looks like crap now.

When you drive around with no floor for a month and think its cool to see the ground while your driving.

When you have a 3 door jeep, because one of the doors doesnt want to open ever no matter what you have tried to do.

When its easier just to break the bolt than try to get it off the right way.

when you intend to break the bolt rather than waste time getting it off the right way and find a replacement for it some othertime... or just leave the part off

you know you drive a jeep when:

You go away to college and your friends stop offroading because they cannot call you to pull them out when they get stuck.

You have to buy a 2nd car because your jeep spends more time broken then running.

Your friends say you are so indecisive beacuse you cannot decide what you want to do to your jeep next.

You can do the posted speed limit when there is a foot of snow on the ground.

People call you at all hours of the night to be winched or pulled out and know youll be down for it.

when you go away on a trip and miss driving your jeep and wheelin it more than anything else and that is the first thing you do when you get home.

You keep an entire spare axle in your garage and not just a spare shaft or part.

You get pulled over by the police just so they can ask you where are the good offroad spots or what you have done to your jeep and they offer to buy it from you.

When your "dates" with a gf are either spent in the garage working on your jeep or offroading.

When you see an unplowed parking lot and drive through it just because you can.

You go offroading beacuse it calms you down or you go just beacuse.

You have to drive with your windows down reguardless of the weather because you will get pulled over since you cant see out of them.

When you have more lights and switches then a space shuttle.

When you have to tell your passengers to step out wide so they dont get mud on the back of their pants.

When people ask you to go offroading or prefer to ride with you beacuse you its always an adventure.
