LOL nice. I don't have a garage, unfortunately. Mine is finally of the jackstands (mostly) and pretty much standing on it's own tires again....

Which brings me to you know you drive a CJ when it spends more time sitting on jackstands than on it's own suspension.

When you know more about axles and rebuilding vehicles than the Poole selling you the parts you need.

I was looking for perches to make my axles SOA and they were like " don't those come on the axles? Why would you need more?"

When the construction sign says "CAUTION : ROUGH ROAD" and you just smile, laughing as everyone slows to a crawl while you cruise on.

You know you drive a CJ when every road is a rough road.

you know you drive a CJ when you go to fix something you could have lived with, and all of a sudden its like spilling a bowl of marbles. Now you have all kinds of problems all over the place that you can't live with, and now you can't drive it for ANOTHER month while you chase those slippery little ****s all over the garage!

See, the originators had this dilemma figured out a long time ago. One of those little things that our WWII veterans forgot to mention during their war stories and reflections of the good ole times, lol.
